In addition to Faculties of Graduate Studies and Science requirements, the Department normally requires that:

**Master of Science (thesis-based)**

All students in Applied Mathematics, Pure Mathematics and Statistics take course work to the equivalent of an Honours Bachelor's degree plus at least five half-course equivalents, or four half-course equivalents if completing program in one year (not counting the seminar course 621) at the graduate level. In addition:

a) Applied Mathematics students must include two of Applied Mathematics 605, 617, Pure Mathematics 607, 611 in their program; and, in each of the first two years of their program, the seminar course Applied Mathematics 621.

b) Pure Mathematics students must include two of Applied Mathematics 605, 617, Pure Mathematics 607, 611 in their program; and, in each of the first two years of their program, the seminar course Pure Mathematics 621.

c) Statistics students must include any three of Statistics 701, 703, 721, 723 in their program; and, in each of the first two years of their program, the seminar course Statistics 621.

**Master of Science (course-based)**

This degree can be completed on a full-time or part-time basis. The normal course load for a full-time course-based Master of Science student is three half courses per term.

a) Applied Mathematics students take eight half-course equivalents which must include two of Applied Mathematics 605, 617, Pure Mathematics 607, 611. In addition, students must take the seminar course Applied Mathematics 621 in each of the first two years of their program. Students completing their program in less than two years will only be required to take the seminar course during the terms in which they are enrolled.

b) Pure Mathematics students take eight half-course equivalents which must include two of Applied Mathematics 605, 617, Pure Mathematics 607, 611. In addition, students must take the seminar course Pure Mathematics 621 in each of the first two years of their program. Students completing their program in less than two years will only be required to take the seminar course during the terms in which they are enrolled.

c) Statistics students take eight half-course equivalents which must include any three of Statistics 701, 703, 721, 723. In addition, students must take the seminar course Statistics 621 in each of the first two years of their program. Students completing their program in less than two years will only be required to take the seminar course during the terms in which they are enrolled.

All students complete a project resulting in a written report, followed up by an oral presentation on the report.

**Doctor of Philosophy**

Course requirements for the Doctor of Philosophy beyond those for a Master's degree are determined on an individual basis, but the following rules apply:

a) Applied Mathematics students must include eight half-course equivalents in their total graduate program (MSc and PhD) including the equivalent of two of Applied Mathematics 605, 617, Pure Mathematics 607, 611; and, in each of the first three years of their program, the seminar course Applied Mathematics 621.

b) Pure Mathematics students must include eight half-course equivalents in their total graduate program (MSc and PhD); including the equivalent of two of Applied Mathematics 605, 617, Pure Mathematics 607, 611; and, in each of the first three years of their program, the seminar course Pure Mathematics 621.

c) Statistics students must include eight half-course equivalents in their total graduate program (MSc and PhD); including the equivalent of Statistics 701, 703, 721, and 723; and, in each of the first three years of their program, the seminar course Statistics 621.
