I'm working on a Math degree from Charter Oak. I'm planning to take
the Math GRE for 24 credits. In addition to those credits, I am required to
have 6 intermediate and 6 advanced level credits. The advanced level
credits must be from a 4year institution. So my questions is this:
Do you know of any good correspondence or independent study courses
in math that I could take to get these credits? I'd rather not go on campus
to take these. Thanks for any help.
Ohio University
has long been a happy hunting ground for cheap, alternate competency
(challenge) exams (and full courses), applicable to the Math degree, and to
just about every other degree offered in BIG THREE Liberal arts degree
programs.
The offerings
at this url should take you 80% or 90% of the way there . There’s enough
intermediate, and just short of enough “advanced” credit available to meet
your needs. Of course, it depends what specific credit COSC deem you to
have earned in the GRE. See: http://www.ohiou.edu/independent/list2.htm#math
Thinking about
it, and they way COSC have designated course credit in the past, it may be
that, for instance, Ohio U. Calculus 4 could be designated “advanced”, in
addition to advanced Math 340, in which case there would be enough advanced
and intermediate credit offerings to meet all your needs.
Anyway, you can
have a look.
Have you
considered that if you score above the eightieth percentile in the GRE
subject exam, you’d be better switching to the cheaper and quicker
Excelsior degree? This also has the virtue of being a named major – i.e. a
Bachelor of Science in Mathematics, as opposed to the COSC Bachelor of
Science in General Studies with a specialization or concentration in
Mathematics.
Even though you
would have to pay around another $1,400 in total, for another college
enrollment and for the Excelsior graduation fee, the 30 credits earned in
the GRE fulfills all requirements in the Math major, and would be less
expensive than any other available challenge exam / course option for the
COSC degree.
Just a
thought.289
