General Description |

History |
---|

The department started education in the fall semester of 1983-1984 academic year and Assoc. Prof.Dr. Yusuf Avcı was appointed chair of program. |

Qualification Awarded |

M. Sc. degree in Mathematics (with thesis). |

Specific Admission Requirements |

Applicants; must have a B. Sc. degree and must take at least 60 points out of 100 from the Academic Personnel and Graduate Education Entrance Examination(ALES) organized by Higher Education Council Student Selection and Placement Center(ÖSYM). Please check the website of the institute for further details and recent changes. http://fbe.marmara.edu.tr/ |

Specific Arrangements For Recognition Of Prior Learning (Formal, Non-Formal and Informal) |

To apply this program the student should graduate from the departments related to mathematics. If the courses in their undergraduate education are unsatisfactory, then they must take extra undergraduate courses. |

Qualification Requirements and Regulations |

Profile of The Programme |

Program is composed of two parts: Lectures and Master Thesis. Lectures include detailed topics related to Theoretical Mathematics: Some of them are courses related to Algebra, some fo them are courses related to Analysis, some of them are courses related to Topology and some fo them are courses related to Differential Geometry. The student prepare thesis one of these subjects. |

Occupational Profiles of Graduates With Examples |

Our graduates have found positions as research assistants in distinguished universities of Turkey, all over the world. Moreover they can easily find work in the financial sector, civil service and teaching as well as in computer science and programming. |

Access to Further Studies |

M.Sc.graduates can apply to Ph.D. programs of Mathematics or other appropriate disciplines. The acceptance of the applicants are ruled by educational institutions. |

Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading |

The passing achievement grade of each course should be minimum 65/100. In the calculation of final achievement grade of course, raitos of the grades obtained from the midterm( s) and final examinations are taken as 50% of each. The grade (S) and grade (U) are used for the Seminar Courrse and Master's Thesis. The grade (S) is given to students who are successful and the grade (U) is given to students who are not successful. The student's standing is calculated in the forms of a GPA and a CGPA and anounced at the end of each semester by the Registirar's Office. The total score obtained by the student in a particular education period is calculated by the summing up individual scores which are obtained via the multiplicaiton of the final achievement grade by the credit of the course. In order to obtain the GPA for any given semester, the total score earned in that semester is divided by the sum of credits. The CGPA is calculated by taking into account all the courses taken by a student starting from her/his registration. |

Graduation Requirements |

Students must successfully complete at least 21 credit hours of lessons and non-credit Seminar and also prepare and successfully defend a M. Sc. thesis. 6 hours of the 21 credit hours must be taken from the core lessons. Students must give a seminar about their thesis. Also every semester during the thesis studies, students must pass the non-credit theoretical courses. |

Facilities |

There are 3 Professor, 3 Associated Proffessor and 4 Assistant Professor in Theoretical Mathematics Program. The students can reach required books and papers by the help of Central Library. |

Key Learning Outcomes |

1 | To learn utilizing and developing the concepts, methods and knowledges which has been gained during the undergraduate mathematical curriculum, |

2 | Despite of the fact that the Master Education does not purposing to obtain some original and new results in Mathematics, the topic of the master thesis should certainly be selected among the new and contemporary areas in mathematics, since it is actually an introductory phase of the doctorate study |

3 | To gain sufficient skill to find the necessary books and periodicals in certain libraries as well as in the internet |

4 | Make progress to comprehend truly all the theoretical proofs and methods in these books and especially in papers during the learning period, |

5 | The student should prove orally to his/her thesis guide in certain times that he/she does truly understand what he/she has read during the learning period, |

6 | To classify all these knowledges and then develop an appropriate writing technique which shows analytic and systematic thinking ability, |

7 | To achieve of writing all knowledges learned from different books and different papers not as successively but in a coherent and uniform way like in a text book, |

8 | To be able to make comment on those open questions which has been asked before on the topic of thesis, |

9 | To gain a very first experience on how one can obtain original and quite genuine results in theoretical mathematics |
