The capstone course is MAT 5900. This seminar course enhances your ability to research, organize, and make written and oral presentations of mathematics. The topic varies from year to year depending upon desires of students and faculty. Faculty or students may suggest topics to the Committee for the Undergraduate Mathematics Program (CUMP), which must approve them.
Independent Study. If you would like to study material not offered in a regular course, you may undertake Independent Study (MAT 5991, 5992, 5993) under the supervision of a faculty member. You must complete a form which details the content and the evaluation methodology of the independent study before registering for this course. Independent study forms are available in the department office, SAC 305.
