To satisfy the breadth requirement, all Master’s students are required to complete 2 courses from the following lists, with no more than 1 course from each list.
To satisfy the breadth requirement, all PhD students are required to complete 3 courses from the following lists, with no more than 1 course from each list.
If a PhD student has taken an equivalent course during a Master's program, this can be counted (upon approval from the graduate officer) towards completion of the breadth requirements, but does not reduce the total number of courses required. Likewise, students who have completed our MMath program will be able to use their MMath breadth courses toward completion of the PhD breadth requirement.
Note: MMath (thesis) and PhD students are allowed to take at most one 600-level course for credit (students who enter or transfer directly into the PhD program without completing a Master's degree may take up to 2 600-level courses for credit). MMath (research paper) students are allowed to take at most three of these courses for credit.
Note: Students who started their graduate program before January 2021 may choose to satisfy either the breadth requirements above, or a grandfathered set of breadth requirements:
- Master’s students: one of AMATH 740, AMATH 741; and one of AMATH 731, AMATH 732, AMATH 751, AMATH 753, and AMATH 777.
- PhD students: one of AMATH 740, AMATH 741; one of AMATH 731, AMATH 732; and one of AMATH 751, AMATH 753, and AMATH 777.
