500 Level Sequences
Master of Science Students
All Master of Science students must complete at least one of the 500-level graduate sequences listed below.
A student using a particular sequence to fulfill the sequence requirement for a Master of Science degree in mathematics must receive grades of A or B in both semesters of that sequence, or pass the written comprehensive exam for that sequence at the MS level. Transfer credit for these sequences will be awarded only to students who pass the written comprehensive exam for that sequence.
Doctor of Philosophy Students
A PhD student must complete (with a minimum grade of B in each semester) at least five of the 500-level graduate sequences listed below.
