Graduate Mathematics Courses

The Program of Mathematics at Alabama A&M University does not offer a graduate degree at this time; however, several graduate courses are offered each semester to serve students in other AAMU graduate programs. For the most accurate and up-to-date list of graduate math courses, please refer to the most recent graduate catalog.

From Graduate Catalog 2023-24

MTH 500 Quantitative Review for Graduate Students 3 credit hours. This course is designed to develop basic understanding of college algebra, usage of concepts of quantification: arithmetic computation, linear and quadratic equations, inequalities, the geometry of elementary figures and similarity, measurement, set operations, coordinate systems, probability, and data analysis, including frequency distributions and descriptive statistics. Credit for this course may not be counted toward any degree requirement. Placement in this course is determined by performance on a standardized test instrument. 

MTH 501 Mathematics Seminar I 1 credit hour. Investigation and discussion of problems related to mathematics instruction and/or special topics in mathematics.
