Current Graduate Offerings

Fall 2017

You are welcome to contact the instructor for more information about any course below. E-mail addresses can be obtained from the Math Department Directory Page.

Roughly speaking, 500-level courses are intended as first-year M.S. courses, 600-level are more advanced M.S. level courses, and 700-level courses are doctoral courses. With the exception of Math 452, most 400-level courses do not count toward program requirements.

Note: Except as noted, all courses below the 600-level that are listed below are now planned on being offered annually.

Links with further information will be added as provided by the instructor. Comments on this page represent brief remarks by the Graduate Director as to how each course fits into the graduate program. Catalog descriptions of the courses are available through the University’s website or at Available Math Courses.

MATH 590. Teaching Practicum.

Credit Hours: 
variable hours
Semester Offered: 
Comments From Graduate Director: 
All GTA’s enroll for one credit hour of Math 590 each semester. This course will reflect the supervised duties assigned to the GTA each semester, which will change from semester to semester. Most GTA’s will take the Teaching Seminar in the Spring of their first year, followed by a second semester in the Fall of their second year. The Teaching Seminar is included in your Math 590 enrollment.

MATH 683. Set Theory and Applications.

Credit Hours: 
3
Semester Offered: 
Comments From Graduate Director: 
This course will follow in the Spring with Math 783. Math 683/783 can be used as a minor in Set Theory in the Ph.D. program. In some cases it may be appropriate for Ph.D. students to combine Math 783 and advanced algebra into a major area.

MATH 696. Graduate Seminar.

Credit Hours: 
1
Semester Offered: 
Comments From Graduate Director: 
Ph.D. students are required to enroll for one credit of graduate seminar each semester they are in residence. Expectations of this course are contained in the linked document. In the spring, we offer Math 694 Seminar: Professional Tools, which needs to be taken once by each graduate student. During the semester Math 694 is taken, Ph.D. students do not need to enroll in Math 696.

MATH 757. Theory of Partial Differential Equations 1.

Credit Hours: 
3
Semester Offered: 
Comments From Graduate Director: 
This course is offered in alternate years, alternating with Math 751 Functional Analysis. It is intended to be followed in the spring with Math 758 and so would be suitable for either a minor sequence or as part of a major area in differential equations for Ph.D. students. Some background in differential equations and analysis, such as Math 564 and Math 551, respectively, is needed.

MATH 780. Seminar in Topology: Algebraic Topology.

Credit Hours: 
3
Semester Offered: 
Comments From Graduate Director: 
This is an advanced seminar in algebraic topology. Students should have a minimum of Math 581-681 and Math 541.
