The course requirements for the MMSS major include:
MMSS 398-2 or
- Students in their senior year must write an acceptable senior thesis. Students must register for MMSS 398-1 in the fall, and they must register for one additional quarter of MMSS 398. (MMSS 398-1, MMSS 398-2 and MMSS 398-3 are offered, respectively, in fall, winter and spring). Students may register for all three quarters. Regardless of which quarters they register for, students writing their theses must attend all meetings of the thesis seminar held throughout the entire year. The seminar typically meets a number of times in the fall quarter when students begin writing their theses, less frequently in the winter quarter, and then a number of times in the spring quarter for students to present their thesis research to one another.
- This note applies to students that take Math 291-1,2,3 in their freshman year and enter the MMSS program as sophomores. The Math Department allows students that perform well in Math 291-1,2,3 to directly enter the real analysis sequence, Math 320-1,2,3 or Math 321-1,2,3, without taking Math 300. MMSS students in this position who do not wish to obtain a minor or major in mathematics may substitute the first quarter of real analysis (Math 320-1 or Math 321-1) for Math 300. As detailed under Math Majors and Math Minors, students who wish to obtain either a minor or major in mathematics must take the entire real analysis sequence and are required to choose an additional 300 level math course to substitute for Math 300.
