Other requirements
Program of Study
The program of study, to include a plan for removal of any conditions on admission,
must be approved by the graduate adviser and will include at least 22 units of mathematics
and statistics.
Thesis
Students must select Plan A and complete Math 799A (Thesis) and give a public oral
defense of the thesis. The thesis normally takes one year to complete and is done
under the direction of a thesis adviser.
Limitations
The program of study can include a maximum of 12 units of 500level courses, and at
most six units of independent research (Mathematics 797, 798, 799A, 799B).
