## Main Question or Discussion Point

**Degree plan!!!**

Well, i have to meet with my academic advisor next week in order to make a plan as which courses should i take up to graduation. I already made a list of the courses that i would like to take. I even tried to list them and fit in the appropriate semester, but they are not fixed, they are flexible in the sense that one course that i added say to take on my 5the semester it doesn't matter whether i take it one semester before or later, but i would like to take all the courses, math ones, that i listed.

Here is how i made it;

**Semester I**: Calculus I, El.Funcstions, Statistics I,Exploring Arts and Sciences- I am currently on these courses.

**Semester II**: Calculus II, Elementary Linear Algebra, English Composition I,Practicum in Academic Tutoring, General College Physics I (including lab), Weight Training.

**Semester III**: Calculus III, Differential Equations, Applied Statistics, English Composition II, Introduction to Philosophy, Introduction to Computer Sciences.

**Semester IV:**Introduction to Abstract Algebra (Part I),Number Theory(Independent study), General College Physics II, Drawing I, Discrete Math, Logic.

**Semester V:**Foundations of Applied Math, Real Analysis, Introduction to Psychology,Music appreciation, Introduction to Theology, Statistics&Probability.

**Semester VI:**Foundations of Geometry(Independent Study), Abstract Algebra-Part II-(Independent Study), Principles of Physics I, Introduction to Sociology, History of Religions.

**Semester VII:**Partial Differential Equations(Independent Study), Introduction to Topology-Part I-(Independent Study), Psychology and Life, Principles of Physics II.

**Semester VIII**: Complex Analysis(Independent Study), Introduction to Topology-Part II-(Independent Study), Modern Physics, Senior Research Capstone.

The courses where i wrote Independent Study in parentheses, are courses that are not regularly offered through the department, but if one wants to take them, then you've got to do independent study on them.

SO, what do you guys think, is this a reasonable course load, especially in Math courses. Or in order to get a chance to go to a moderate grad school i need to add some more upperdivision math courses, and do independent study on them, like: Differential Geometry, Algebraic Geometry etc.????

I am gonna meet with my advisor this Monday, i guess, so if anyone could give me some advice, in either what math classes to take and also in what order, i would appreciate it.

Thanks in advance to all of you.
