Streamlined Curriculum

In 1961 with a student population of 1200, the mathematics department with six faculty members offered a much concentrated curriculum from early years. Here it is evident that two main curricular streams were emerging: analysis and algebra. Further details of the changing curriculum are collected in the Evolution of the Mathematics Curriculum.

This is the list of courses in the 1961 catalog:

Notice that Modern Algebra is offered, but complex analysis is left perhaps for the Readings course. Also, the prerequisites on the Analysis courses are not explicitly stated.
