Typically the calculus serious, real analysis, differential geomeotry/topology, linear algebra, diff. Equations. Then you have to figure out what branch of mathematics you want to atudy.

Going to a university webpage and looking under degree programs shoild give you a list of classes.

Pure:

Analysis ( advanced calculus )

Abstract algebra

Proof based Linear Algebra

Electives in Diff Geo, topology, ect.

Applied:

Analysis

Differential equations + Partial

Linear Algebra

Numerical analysis ( computer math programming)

Elective math course.

These are the norms at most university's. I am not sure what math class you have taken thus far, but upper division pure math will be far from anything you have done before. I am only in calculus 1 but have self studied a lot of pure math with a professor and it is SO much different and much more interesting to me since I hate application problems.
