Program Information
Faculty: Faculty of Science
Degree: Master

Description The program consists of two options leading to the degree of Master of Science in Applied Mathematics. This is a full time program designed for students who have completed a four-year Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics or related fields requiring significant mathematical course work or mathematical maturity. In addition to having adequate background in mathematics, students should be self-motivated and interested in research collaboration with faculty. In the Thesis Option (with a timeline of six terms), students are required to complete five courses and a thesis. In the Major Research Paper Option (with a timeline of five terms), students are required to complete nine courses and a major research paper. Both options require students to regularly attend and participate in the Graduate Seminar. This Graduate Seminar is considered as an extra course (AM8000) requirement for graduation and graded on a Pass/Fail basis. Students in either of the two program options will be assigned a thesis supervisor who will assist them in the preparation of an acceptable thesis or major research paper.
