Exam Requirements
Preliminary written examinations are required in the areas of undergraduate analysis and algebra. Comprehensive oral examinations are also required that cover graduate analysis, graduate algebra and a third approved topic. The written examinations are usually completed by the end of the first year and the orals are taken in the last quarter of study.
