The Department of Mathematics at the University of Toronto offers opportunities for research—leading to the Master of Science degree—in the fields of pure mathematics and applied mathematics.


About this Degree

Faculty areas of research include, but are not limited to, real and complex analysis, ordinary and partial differential equations, harmonic analysis, nonlinear analysis, several complex variables, functional analysis, operator theory, C*-algebras, ergodic theory, group theory, analytic and algebraic number theory, Lie groups and Lie algebras, automorphic forms, commutative algebra, algebraic geometry, singularity theory, differential geometry, symplectic geometry, classical synthetic geometry, algebraic topology, set theory, set-theoretic topology, mathematical physics, fluid mechanics, probability (in co-operation with the Department of Statistics), combinatorics, optimization, control theory, dynamical systems, computer algebra, cryptography, and mathematical finance.

Opportunities for graduate study and research are available in most of the main areas of pure and applied mathematics. There is a large selection of graduate courses and seminars, a diverse student body of domestic and international students, and yet classes are small and the ratio of graduate students to faculty is low.

Many recent Mathematics graduates from University of Toronto are engaged in university teaching, and a significant number hold administrative positions in universities or in the professional communities. Others are pursuing careers in industry (technological or financial) or in government.
