3. Notes

A. In planning their program, students should keep in mind that some of the 300- and 400-level courses listed are not offered every year and that many 400-level courses may be taken in third year.

B. Graduate courses at the 800-level are available to fourth-year students with an excellent record who obtain permission of the Department and of the School of Graduate Studies and Research.

C. Students should select some of their 300-level and 400-level courses to be focused in one area of mathematics or statistics.   The following is a list of suggested areas and some of the courses that belong to those areas:
