Section 9 Master's Degree

All students who advance to candidacy will receive a Master's Degree at the end of the second year.

If a student in pure math fails the Advancement Exam or a student in applied math fails to do a satisfactory job in their oral presentation of summer research, the student's committee may still recommend to the GPC that the student be granted a master's degree.

Students who decide that they do not wish to try to advance may choose instead to assemble a committee for the sole purpose of determining whether they should be granted a master's degree.

Formal requirements for the Master's Degree are listed in Appendix C.1.1 and the Department's amplification of those requirements are listed in Appendix C.2.
