Master's (MSc) Course-based

This degree is suitable for full-time or part-time students who are not necessarily oriented towards research activity. It typically requires a Bachelor's degree in the same or a related discipline.

NOTE:  There will be no funding available for Spring and Summer terms.

Admissions Confirmation Deposit. The University of Calgary requires a one time only admissions confirmation deposit of $500 for all course-based students. The deposit is non-refundable and will be applied to the tuition and fees for the first term in your program. 

Full-Time Students

TIME LIMIT: You are allowed a MAXIMUM of 4 years to complete the degree.

COURSE LOAD: The normal course load for a full-time course-based Master of Science student is three half courses per term. 

PERFORMANCE LEVEL: Should maintain a minimum cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.00 calculated on a 4-point scale at the end of each registration year and attain at least a B- on each course taken for credit.

Part-time Students

Required Courses

Course requirements are taken from the following lists of courses:

  • List A: Mathematics 601, 603, 605, 607 (Syllabi)
  • List B: Mathematics 617, 621, 625, 627, 631, 641, 661, 681, 685, Statistics 701 (Syllabi)
  • List C: Statistics 701, 703, 721, 723 (Syllabi)

All students must take eight half-course equivalents at the graduate level. In addition:

a) Mathematics students must include two courses from List A. All first year graduate students must take MATH 600 (seminar course, which is on top of the course load).  Students might be asked to take the seminar course more than once.

b) Statistics students must include three courses from List C.  All first year graduate students must take STAT 600 (seminar course, which is on top of the course load).  Students might be asked to take the seminar course more than once.
