The Department of Mathematics and Statistics of Memorial University of Newfoundland offers graduate programs leading to three degrees: Master of Applied Statistics (MAS) The MAS is a highly structured program incorporating both courses and practicum (an applied statistics project). A full-time student with an honours degree in statistics normally requires three or four semesters (12 to 16 months) to complete the degree requirements. Master of Science (M.Sc.) The M.Sc. programs in mathematics and in statistics consist of graduate courses and a thesis. Each program should normally be completed within two years. Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) The Ph.D. programs in mathematics and in statistics consist of course work, a two-part comprehensive examination, and a thesis embodying the results of original research of a high calibre. We expect most students to complete the Ph.D. degree program in three to four years. Upon completion of the thesis, a final oral examination and defence of thesis must take place. The department is also a participating member of the M.Sc. in Computational Science program. Students interested in this interdisciplinary program should direct their inquiries directly to the program coordinator; for information, please visit the Computational Science Program website. Complete regulations concerning programs of study can be found in the Memorial University Calendar.
