Tracks For Students Considering Graduate School
Below are two tracks for students considering graduate school in mathematics or related disciplines. These tracks are not formal in any sense. The below are simply curricular suggestions for students who are considering using significant amounts of mathematics after graduation. They are also appropriate for students who just want some suggestions as to how to ensure they get a strong foundation in mathematics. While there is a lot of overlap between pure and applied mathematics, we have written separate tracks for each for simplicity.
Math Dependencies Chart
This flowchart shows the majority of dependencies amoung math courses.
A few notes:
-Some courses are not shown, such as Math 295.
-Some prerequisites are complicated. For example, the prerequisites for MATH 251 are "MATH 141 or MATH 151 or C- or better in MATH 052; MATH 122 or MATH 124." We have not tried to include all of the nuances, though the chart does try to capture most of them. Please check the catalogue for the definitive requirements for each course.
- Not all classes are offered every semester. Make sure to check with the department if you are counting on taking a course during a specific semester.
