A very beautiful classical theory on field extensions of a certain type (Galois extensions) initiated by Galois in the 19th century. Explains, in particular, why it is not possible to solve an equation of degree 5 or more in the same way as we solve quadratic or cubic equations. You will learn to compute Galois groups and (before that) study the properties of various field extensions.

TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO GALOIS THEORY
A difficult course for me, personally, but that makes it all the more worth it! Taking this course has helped me learn more I thought I would. Definitely recommended.
the content is rich, though a little advanced. I strongly recommend this course to others, because I personally learned a lot from it.
Outstanding course so far - a great refresher for me on Galois theory. It's nice to see more advanced mathematics classes on Coursera.
The teacher is good at explaining things. It is best you take an algebra course for prerequisite.
