The Master of Applied Science (M.A.Sc.) is a graduate-level study program that includes a research investigation and the writing of a thesis. Requirements for the M.A.Sc. include satisfactory completion of 30 credits of graduate-level courses (up to 6 credits may be at the undergraduate level in courses numbered 300 to 499), original research under the supervision of a faculty member, and a thesis. The thesis is assigned 6 to 12 credits and is counted as part of the coursework requirement. A typical completion time for the M.A.Sc. is 24 months. Subject to satisfactory progress and acceptance by a faculty supervisor, a successful M.A.Sc. graduate may transfer to a course of studies leading to the Ph.D.
