 Second Cycle Programme with Thesis
General Description


History  The department of Mathematics was founded as a major, independent unit within the Faculty of Science in 1961. In 1973, it was proposed that it be a department consisting of two subsections: Applied Mathematics and Theoretic Mathematics. The department was reformed in 1982. Since then it has had seven subunits (Theory of Algebra and Number, Geometry, Theory of Calculus and Functions, Topology, Foundations of Mathematics and Mathematical Logic, Applied Mathematics, and Computer Science) and steadily improved in the areas of academics and education.  Qualification Awarded  The Master’s Degree in Mathematics (second cycle in Mathematics) is awarded to the graduates who have successfully fulfilled all programme requirements.  Level of Qualification  Second Cycle  Specific Admission Requirements  The applicants who hold a Bachelor's Degree and willing to enroll in the Master's programme may apply to the Directorate of the Graduate School with the documents: 1Sufficient score (at least 55 out of 100) from the Academic Staff and Graduate Study Education Exam (ALES) conducted by Student Selection and Placement Center (OSYM) or GRE Graduate Record Examination (GRE) score or Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) score equivalent to ALES score of 55. 2English proficiency (at least 70 out of 100 from the Profiency Exam conducted by Ege University Foreign Language Department, or at least 50 out of 100 from ÜDS (University Language Examination conducted by OSYM) or TOEFL or IELTS score equivalent to UDS score of 50. The candidates fulfilling the criteria outlined above are invited to interwiev. The assessment for admission to masters programs is based on : 50% of ALES, 25% of academic success in the undergraduate programme (cumulative grade point average (CGPA) ) and 25% of interview grade. The required minimum interview grade is 50 out of 100. The candidates having an assessed score of 60 at least are accepted into the Master's programme. The results of the evaluation are announced by the Directorate of Graduate School.  Specific Arrangements For Recognition Of Prior Learning (Formal, NonFormal and Informal)  The rules for recognition of formal prior learning are well defined. A student who is currently enrolled in a Master's Degree programme in the same discipline at another institution and has successfully completed at least one semester, upon submitting all required documents before the deadline, may transfer to the Master's Programme at EGE University upon the recommendation of the department administration and with the approval of the Administrative Committee of the Graduate School. The decision taken will also include eligibility for exemption from some course requirements of the graduate program. Students who transfer from another university must be successful in the EGE University English Proficiency Exam or in an equivalent English examination. Recognition of prior nonformal and informal learning is at the beginning stage in Turkish Higher Education Institutions. Ege University is not an exception to this.  Qualification Requirements and Regulations  The programme consists of a minimum of seven courses delivered within the graduate programme of the department and in related fields, one seminar course, and thesis, with a minimum of 21 local credits. The seminar course and thesis are noncredit and graded on a pass/fail basis. The duration of the programme is four semesters. The maximum period to complete course work in a masters program with thesis is 4 semesters. However, with the approval of their advisors, students can in subsequent semesters take additional departmental courses with or without credits. The total ECTS credits of the programme is 120 ECTS. A student may take undergraduate courses on the condition that the courses have not been taken during the undergraduate program. However, at most two of these courses may be counted to the Master's course load and credits. Students must register for thesis work and the Specialization Field course offered by his supervisor every semester following the semester, in which the supervisor is appointed. A student who has completed work on the thesis within the time period, must write a thesis, using the data collected, according to the specifications of the Graduate School Thesis Writing Guide. The thesis must be defended in front of a jury. The Master's thesis jury is appointed on the recommendations of the relevant Department Chairperson and with the approval of the Administrative Committee of the Graduate School. The jury is composed of the thesis supervisor and 3 to 5 faculty members. Of the appointed jury members, up to one may be selected from another Department or another University. In case the jury consists of 3 members, the cosupervisor cannot be the jury member. A majority vote by the jury members determines the outcome of the thesis or examination. The vote can be for "acceptance", "rejection" or "correction". The Department Chairperson will inform the Director of the Graduate School, in writing, of the jury's decision within 3 days. To correct or change a thesis found incomplete and/or inadequate by the jury, the jury must specify in its report that such corrections are necessary. A student may be given, by a decision of the Administrative Committee of the Graduate School, up to three months to complete the corrections. The student must then retake the thesis examination.  Profile of The Programme  The education is four years excepting one year of English Prepration. The students who couldn’t qualified for English must attend English Prepration education at foreign language department. Some part of department lessons are English. Our departments education program is coordinated as to follow nowadays mathematical developments. First semester all the department students take common lessons; General :Mathematics, Analysis, Topology, Differential Equations, Abstract Algebra, Computer Science and etc. At the fifth semester, students chose options as Theoritical Mathematics, Computer Science and Applied Mathematics. At the third and fourth years all the options have optional and compulsary lessons.  Occupational Profiles of Graduates With Examples  If the graduates have formation and get KPSS Marks, they can be appointed as a Mathematics theacher by M.E.B, or they can be work as a mathematics theacher at private establishment preparing students for various exams and special school. On computer sector they can work in diferent positions. The students who are in graduate education can be researcher and researcher assistants in universities.  Access to Further Studies  Graduates who successfully completed the Master's Degree may apply to doctorate (third cycle) programmes in the same or in related disciplines.  Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading  Students are required to take a midterm examination and/or complete other assigned projects/homework during the semester and, additionally, are required to take a final examination and/or complete a final project for course evaluation. The final grade is based on the midterm examination grade, the final examination grade and/or evaluation of final project, with the contributions of 40% and 60%, respectively. To pass any course, a Master's student must receive at least 70 out of 100. Students must repeat courses they have failed or may substitute courses the Department accepts as equivalent. The assessment for each course is described in detail in “Individual Course Description”.
