Masters in Pure Mathematics?

I'm very interested in a Masters in Mathematics, but I really want it in Pure Math. I would be much more interested in the study of pure math than say, any applied maths.

Anyone know of any schools that offer this type of degree?
I would love to take courses in Graduate Modern Algebra, graph theory, and topology etc...

Thanks

Well, you could go to some classes that offers programs that teaches advanced mathematics course, if available. Sign up for any available college math courses. And, of course, you can study math by your own at home, too at the same time.

Re: Masters in Pure Mathematics?

Many technical Universities, and most universities in general. Just check the degree programs in the math departments at schools you'd be looking at.

I know University of Chicago and Northwestern have excellent math programs. I assume MIT would as well, and many of the Ivy League schools.

It's pretty funny, because the definition of pure math is essentially any type of math that is of no practical use. However, it may be of use sometime in the future. This often happens in lots of situations, prime numbers and encryption being a good example. Actually, I like pure math as it relates to number theory.

I would suggest that pure mathematics is mathematics studied strictly for it's own sake, rather than studying applications.
