The Faraday rotation angle and the magneto-optical transmission of light through the monolayer graphene with a magnetic field perpendicular to the plane of graphene are calculated within the framework of the low-energy effective quantum field theory of Dirac quasiparticles. The general results are applicable not only in the semi-classical, but also in the degenerate quantum regime. The theoretical results are in a good quantitative agreement with the available experimental data. The only fit parameter in the model is the value of the quasiparticle width.
