Requirements for Mathematics Minor for MS students

The requirements for the Mathematics Concentration for MS students in certain fields are the same as those for the Mathematics Minor.

1. Special committee  requirements:
The student must have a Mathematics field member on his/her special committee. 

2. Plan requirements:
The student and the Mathematics special committee member should agree on a plan of study that fulfills the requirements for the Mathematics minor. This should be done when the Mathematics field member joins the student's committee.

3. Course requirements:  
At least two mathematics  courses at the 5000-level or 6000-level should be taken, and at least one of these must be at the 6000-level. The two courses must have graded homework or graded exams in order to count toward the minor.

4. List of courses:
The two courses in (3) must be chosen from the following list.
5000-level: 5250, 5410, 5420.
6000-level: 6110 (Real Analysis), 6120 (Complex Analysis), 6150 (Partial Differential Equations), 6160 (Partial Differential Equations), 6210 (Measure Theory and Lebesgue Integration), 6310 (Algebra), 6320 (Algebra II), 6510 (Algebraic Topology), 6520 (Differentiable Manifolds), 6710 (Probability Theory I), 6720 (Probability Theory II), 6740 (Mathematical Statistics II), 6810 (Logic).

The Mathematics field member on the special committee may approve other 6000-level courses if they have
graded homework or graded exams.

5. Grade requirements: 
The two courses in (3) must be taken for letter grade and be passed with a grade of B- or better. 

6. Additional Courses: 
The student may take additional mathematics courses at the 5000-level or higher and with letter grade or S/U grade.

Faculty, who would like to suggest additional courses to be included in the list in (4), should contact the DGS.
