 Any other course at this level approved by the graduate committee.
 The courses listed above are regularly offered within the Faculty. Other advanced courses are offered within the Faculty of Mathematics on topics of computational mathematics on a more irregular basis. These courses may be taken with approval of the Graduate Committee. Similarly, courses offered outside the Faculty, in Computational Mathematics or in some area of its application may be approved by the Graduate Committee. At most 2 of the 6 courses taken may be courses in which undergraduate students predominate.
 Students with strong backgrounds in some core areas may be granted exemption from the corresponding core courses required by the program; in each such case another course will be substituted for the exempted course so that the total courses required remains the same.
 Students must maintain an average of 70% in order to remain in good standing. Formal progress reports will be required in the event that a student wishes or needs to remain in the program longer than one year.

 Master’s Research Paper
 Students must undertake an independent research project culminating in a research paper (1.00 unit weight). It is intended that the research project will be approximately the equivalent of two full courses and will be conducted under the direction of the student’s research supervisor. To be successfully completed, the research paper must be unanimously approved by the student's advisory committee, consisting of the student’s research supervisor and one additional reader.
 Students are also required to attend a Symposium, which normally takes place the third week in August, to present their research papers.
