DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICS, STATISTICS, AND PHYSICS

Course Requirements for MS

A) 24 hours in Math/Stat courses numbered 700 or above

B) 33 graduate hours (Math/Stat courses below 600 excluded)

C) Three two-semester sequences from those listed below

The possible two-semester sequences are the following. Real Analysis is offered every year. All other sequences are offered in alternate years. Both semesters of at least 3 of these sequence most be completed.

8. Num Linear Alg & Statist Computing 751-774 511,547,551,763,764

To complete the other degree requirements students may choose either one or both semesters of other sequence courses or choose from the courses listed below.

 

ONE SEMESTER GRADUATE COURSES OFFERED ON A REGULAR BASIS

Course Number Prerequisites
Modern Geometry 720 513
Ordinary Differential Equations 753 547
Probability 761 344
Calculus of Variations 848 547 or 757

UPPER-DIVISION UNDERGRADUATE COURSES WHICH COUNT TOWARD GRADUATE CREDIT

(At most, three 600-level courses may be used toward MS degree; none toward PhD degree.)

Course Number Prerequisites
Elementary Number Theory 615 344
Elementary Geometry 621 344
Advanced Calculus II 640 511-547
Optimization Theory 657 511
Differential Equations II 655 555

*Engineering Partial Differential Equations (Math 757) is recommended before Math 755.

NOTE: Complex Variables for Engineers (Math 758) does not count toward MS degree Math.

More information on these courses can be found in the Math/Stat portion of the Graduate Catalog.
