Curriculum of the First Year Courses | Department of Mathematics
There are introductory graduate courses in Algebra, Analysis, and Geometry-Topology. Each is offered in two versions: a masters level version and a Ph.D. level version. The masters level algebra course is Math 502/503, and the Ph.D. level course is Math 602/603. In analysis, the corresponding numbers are 508/509 and 608/(609 or 610). In geometry-topology, the corresponding numbers are 500/501 and 600/601.

All Ph.D. students are required to take (or place out of) these 600-level courses, although it is possible to take the 500-level courses first if this seems appropriate.

In addition, all Ph.D. students are required to take a year of algebraic topology, Math 618/619. Below are descriptions of Math 602/603, 608/(609 or 610), and 600/601. See the full list of course descriptions for information about other courses.
