The Master of Science program aims to provide students with an intensive advanced education in areas of Mathematics and Statistics in preparation for doctoral studies or the job market. Students can follow either the Mathematics stream or the Statistics stream. In research output, the Department is currently in the top three in its category among Ontario universities as ranked by Canadian University Publications.
