- They may take the same examinations as administered to PhD. students, and may receive a masters level pass (if unsuccessful at the doctoral level). These students have three consecutive opportunities to pass three exams at the masters level.
- They may take the masters qualifying examinations, that will test basic knowledge in several general areas determined by their chosen option:
- Pure Mathematics: (i) Algebra (MATH 6201); (ii) Real Analysis (MATH 6261) (iii) Complex Analysis (MATH 6301); (iv) Topology (MATH 6540).
- Applied Mathematics: Probability and Statistics (MATH 6601 and MATH 6602); (ii) Computationai Analysis I (MATH 6680), Linear Programming (MATH 6881), Optimization (MATH 6882) (iii) Data Structures I (MATH 668l), Algorithms (MATH 6682)
