Facilities
The Department of Mathematics and Statistics is located in its own building, Jeffery Hall, and this building also houses most of the facilities associated with the department. A large number of networked public computers and workstations are located in Jeffery Hall and provide students and staff with ready access to standard computing software and to the Internet. In addition, Jeffery Hall houses†a communications laboratory, a statistics laboratory, a biomathematics laboratory and solar radio telescope laboratory,†for the use of students who do research in those areas.
Financial Assistance Graduate students are normally supported by teaching and research assistantships and various scholarships and grants. A student receiving a major scholarship (such as an Ontario Graduate Scholarship or a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council Postgraduate Scholarship) will normally be awarded additional support and also offered a teaching assistantship.
Areas of Research The faculty research areas can be divided into five broad fields: Algebra and Number Theory; Analysis, Geometry, and Topology; Applied Mathematics; Mathematics and Engineering; and Probability and Statistics. A detailed summary of the current research interests of our faculty is†available on our website http://www.mast.queensu.ca/grad.html.
Degree Programs
Applicants are accepted under the general regulations of the School of Graduate Studies and must fulfill departmental requirements.
MASTER OF SCIENCE (M.Sc.)

Pattern I

The program consists of four half courses approved by the department and a Master's thesis. At least one of the courses must be taken from the department's core graduate course offerings. This program normally takes up to two years to complete.

Pattern II (Mathematics)

The program consists of seven half courses approved by the department and a research project. One of the courses must be MATH 800 and at least two courses must be selected from the department's core graduate course offerings. This program normally takes 12 months to complete.

Pattern II (Statistics)

The program consists of seven half courses approved by the department and a research project. At least one course must be selected from the department's core graduate course offerings. This program normally takes 12 months to complete.

Qualified students may also apply to complete this program with a specialization in Biostatistics.† See the details of the Collaborative M.Sc. Program in Biostatistics†in this calendar.

For complete details on all masters degree programs offered by the department consult our Graduate Programmes and Guidelines.†

MASTER OF APPLIED SCIENCE†(M.A.Sc.)
This program is directed towards engineers with a strong interest in mathematics. The program consists of a minimum of four one-term courses approved by the department and a Master's thesis. At least one course must be taken from the department's core graduate course offerings. This program normally takes up to two years to complete.
DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY
Applicants are accepted under the general regulations of the School of Graduate Studies.
The program involves three stages: preparation for research (course†requirements), certification that the preparation is adequate (comprehensive examination) and thesis research.
Course Requirements
The student, in consultation with the supervisor, must propose a selection of courses which ensures exposure to multiple branches of mathematics and/or statistics and which provides the student with a depth of knowledge commensurate with a Ph.D. holder in mathematics or statistics. This proposal will consist of a minimum of nine one term graduate courses and may include courses taken during a Masterís program at Queenís or elsewhere. The specific and number of courses a student will be required to take during their doctoral studies will depend on their field of study and their background preparation to date.
Comprehensive Examination
This is an oral examination. The objectives are to assess the studentís knowledge of their field and the core areas related to that field and to evaluate the feasibility of the proposed research and the studentís competence to carry out the proposed research. The Comprehensive Examination will normally be taken within 24 months of initial registration in the doctoral program.
For complete details on all requirements for the doctoral degree consult our Graduate Programmes and Guidelines.†
