Programs of Study
The Department offers Master's degrees under both the thesis (Pattern I) and project (Pattern II) and Doctoral degrees. Refer to the Mathematics and Statistics Degree Programs section of this calendar for details.
A student beginning a Master's degree usually has taken courses in linear algebra, calculus, probability and statistics. Students who lack sufficient background in this area may be required to take an undergraduate course at the beginning of their graduate studies.
For complete details on all masters degree programs offered by the department consult our Graduate Programmes and Guidelines.
