Program description

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Memorial University is one of the institution's youngest - half of our faculty were hired since 2005 - and most prestigious - 20% of us hold the university's top rank, University Research Professor. Although the Department of Mathematics and Statistics has offered graduate degrees for many years, there has been a surge in interest in these programmes over the last decade, adding valuable new voices to the Department's community of academics.

Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computation, Analysis, Combinatorics, Topology, Applied Statistics, Differential Equations and Dynamical Systems, Mathematical Models and Modeling / Numerical Optimization, Algebra, Mathematical Physics, Mathematical Statistics, and Fluid Mechanics are among the research areas studied by our faculty and graduate students.

The Master of Applied Statistics is a well-structured curriculum that includes coursework as well as an applied statistics project. A full-time student usually needs one year to finish the degree requirements. This programme only admits new students in the fall semester.

Applicants who did not complete a baccalaureate or post-graduate degree at a recognized university where English is the primary language of instruction must normally complete either the:

  • Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) and achieve a paper-based score of 580 (or higher), computer-based score of 237 (or higher), or internet-based score of 92-93 (or higher); or
  • International English Language Testing System (IELTS) and achieve a score of 7 (or higher).
  • Please note that other equivalent tests acceptable to Memorial University’s School of Graduate Studies will also be considered.
