All mathematics majors are required to take the Senior Colloquium course. The Senior Colloquium gives students the chance to do independent study on a topic of their choice, culminating in an academic conference or seminar before students and faculty. Each student works under the supervision of a faculty member. Senior Colloquium is usually a four-hour capstone course, although a one-hour version is available for students who take another capstone course.

Possible topics:

Topics are negotiable between the student and the faculty supervisor and may be a favorite topic brought up in a course, or something outside the academic classroom that has inspired your mathematical curiosity, or something suggested by a faculty member, etc. The following list of suggestions is not in any particular order, and is not meant to be all-inclusive.
