    I don't think there is a "highest" course in math. You can spend years working on a phd in math, and there will still be more.

    I'll just list a couple courses for applied mathematics:

    Calculus 1- Calculus 3
    Linear Algebra
    Differential Equations
    Probability and Statistics
    Partial Differential Equations
    Advanced Linear Algebra
    Real Analysis

    It's not an exhaustive list but it hits the more common math courses for undergraduates. However, it's difficult to give an exact order of difficulty. All I can say about it is very much relative to my own experience and nothing more. Nevertheless, I think this list is fairly accurate in terms of difficulty: beginning with calculus I and ending with Real Analysis.

    Real analysis is a course you take which focuses on the why and how of calculus more than the actual calculation. You need to have a good background on mathematical proofs and (of course) calculus.

    Thanks, I really appreciate it.

    that would be funny if there were a course called:

    MAT7999: The Final Math Course

    This is the final math course ever. No math after this. At all.

    but sadly this does not exist. :tongue:
