2. A member of the Math Graduate Field on the special committee

3. Passing an A-exam in the student's major field of study

4. Four of the following six courses:

- Analysis: Math 6110 (Real Analysis) and Math 6120 (Complex Analysis).

- Algebra: Math 6310 and Math 6320.

- Topology/geometry: Math 6510 (Algebraic Topology) or Math 6520 (Differentiable Manifolds).

At least one course must be selected from each of the three areas analysis, algebra, and topology/geometry.

5. One other one-semester course in numbered 6000 or above.

6. All courses taken in fulfillment of these requirements must be taken for grade credit, and grades of B- or better in all coursework are required.

## Master of Science (M.S.) for students in the Math graduate program

Students may receive a Master of Science (M.S.) in Math either by passing the A-exam in Math or by completing coursework. In the latter case, requirements (4), (5), and (6) above must be satisfied.
