##### Notes:

M.S. Plan A: The final written exam will consist of two parts: one part on either the Advanced Algebra sequence or the Real Variables sequence; and the other part in candidate-selected areas, approved by the departmental committee, consisting of two mathematics courses, not necessarily sequenced. The final comprehensive oral exam will be the thesis defense.

M.S. Plan B: The final written exam will consist of two parts: one part on either the Advanced Algebra sequence or the Real Variables sequence; and the other part in candidate-selected areas, approved by the departmental committee, consisting of two mathematics courses, not necessarily sequenced. The final comprehensive oral exam will be based on the student’s course of study.
