I am an undergraduate math major. I want to have some math graduate courses on my transcript. I can't do this at my university. Are there online graduate math courses that I can take and receive a certificate after I complete the course successfully. I don't want a full degree, I just want some graduate courses. I searched Google, but I couldn't find any. It is better if the courses are cheap. Thank you
The University of Washington applied math program offers an online graduate masters degree. I know some who have completed it. There are constantly courses in PDEs, complex variables, and linear algebra. I know in the past there has been at least one course in Analysis (I am not sure if it was more applied or an introduction to real analysis). You may be looking more for pure math courses, but I know that UW's applied math program is a top-ranked program, so you will be getting a quality education if you are interested.
There is a website called www.saylor.org its completely free and they designed the mathematics portion as if you were in a university. It seems pretty good. Check it out.
Pulling a statement right from the FAQ of Class Central:
Some courses offer a ‘Statement of Accomplishment’ (sometimes with ‘Distinction’), but these are issued in the name of the MOOC provider, with only mention of the professor and university. Recently, Coursera has offered a ‘Signature Track’, which, for a fee, verifies that the student has actually completed the course. Note that although MOOCs generally do not result in college credit, many individuals who have completed MOOCs list them as training experiences on their profiles or resumes.
Check out Athabasca University's website http://www.athabascau.ca/course/ug_subject/im.php. It seems to offer correspondence courses on upper-year undergrad-level math courses. Not sure about grad-level math courses though.
