MATH 485 Senior Seminar

Spring, Fall
2-2, 4-4, or 0-4

Students pursue individual projects supervised by members of the faculty. Seminar sessions focus on issues of effective written and oral
presentation of mathematics. A student may pursue either a research project, in which the student carries out original research on a
suitable topic of interest, or an expository project, demonstrating understanding of mathematics by exploring some topic of established
mathematics which is not covered in a regular course. Students who pursue an expository project may complete the senior seminar
requirement in either one semester (4 credits in the Fall) or two semesters (2 credits in the Fall, 2 credits in the Spring.) Students
pursuing a research project must complete the requirement over two semesters.
