Comments From Graduate Director: 
Continuation of Math 541. This is the basic graduate sequence in algebra. Note that algebra is one of the areas of the M.S. Advanced Exams/Ph.D. entrance exams. Math 541 follows in the spring with a second semester, Math 641, and both courses are needed if you are taking the exam. Math 541-641 is a basic prerequisite for advanced courses in combinatorics, graph theory, and number theory. It is a popular course for first year M.S. students and for first year Ph.D. students who expect to take the Entrance Exam in that area.
