Graduate Mathematics (MATH) Courses

5305. Graduate Research Project.  3
A Graduate Research Project must be completed and submitted to the Graduate
Office for a grade to be assigned, otherwise IP notations are recorded.  This course is
specifically designed for Plan II students.
Prerequisite:  departmental approval.

5306.  Thesis.  3
This course is for Plan I students.  The course requires 6 hours of grades, the first 3
hours consisting of completion of a thesis proposal and the last 3 hours consisting of
completion of the thesis.  Completion of the thesis proposal is a prerequisite in the last
3 hours of thesis.
