CLA Math Capstone and Writing Intensive Senior Project, Independent/Directed Study

Capstone Registration: A section of MATH 4995/4997W will be created for you and your capstone advisor. See the list of possible Math Faculty & Postdoctoral Mentors for possible capstone advisors. Email ugrad@math.umn.edu with the following information:
  • UMN Student ID
  • Identify if you are doing the non-writing intensive MATH 4995 or the writing intensive 4997W
  • forward capstone advisor's email showing agreement to work with you
The UG Math office will notify you to which section of the capstone course you should register. You must be registered for the course in order to earn credit. Be aware of registration deadlines to add a course.

To enroll in Directed Reading/Directed Study (Math 4992-4993), students need to follow the instructions on the Directed Research/Directed Study web page. See the list of possible Math Faculty & Postdoctoral Mentors for this type of project as well.
