**MORE Math Course questions!!!**

I am a second year physics major at Santa Clara University with a minor in philosophy and I am strongly considering another minor in Math. The physics program here is very small, and I decided to be a physics major after I had decided to come here, but the good thing is I get to know the professors quite well and I learn a lot because of that. I am planning for grad school but not sure which field (I am interested in cosmology, QM, astro, nothing specific...) or if I want to go for theoretical or experimental study (I am leaning towards theoretical but not sure).

Anyway, I am pretty oblivious to how much math or which math courses I may need. Because its a small school in general, the more advanced courses are offered every other year for only one quarter, and I am studying abroad next fall so my options are limited. But here are the courses that I will probably be able to take:

Linear Algebra (lower division)

Advanced Calculus, Linear Algebra II (upper division), or Probability and Statistics I but only one.

Partial Differential Equations

Ordinary Differential Equations

Differential Geometry

I don't know when the following will be offered, but they are in the course catalog:

Theory of Functions of a Complex Variable

Topology

Set Theory

Intermediate Analysis I

Numerical Analysis

Combinatorics

I have already taken Calculus i-iv (includes differential, integral, vector, and multivariable) and Differential Equations. I have intro physics i-iv (includes intro to modern) and circuits, and am taking EM I and Computational Mechanics this quarter.

Any advice on this somewhat unique situation is much appreciated.
