What is expected in a masters thesis of a mathematics student?
What is the level of work expected in the masters thesis of a student of maths?
I know some people's works are worthy of publications while some involve only studying some topic in detail from a book and submitting a summary (since this is akin to a couple of courses, a year worth of work, in that topic in terms of content covered, I would consider this,which I believe is called a literature review thesis , as an extreme opposite of independent research work thesis).
But what is the "average" level of a MS thesis of a mathematics student? Is it usually closer to a literature review thesis or a research work thesis?
In particular, I would also like to know:
How much is it valued (if at all) when one applies for PhD? I have heard that its value is more in Europe than America, which if I were to guess I would say, may be due to absence of GRE like criterion there. Is this true?
Edit : After the wonderful existing answer explaining the case in Germany, I would really like to know the situation in US too. I expect a drastic difference due to the presence of GRE system but would like to know how much importance the thesis has, there.
PS: Please excuse me if one can find answers to some of these questions in already existing questions. I have searched, but couldn't find them. Please provide the links in those cases.
Also, anecdotal details will also be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
- @user54981 Of course that would most certainly be there. – Neeraj Kumar Jun 6, 2016 at 6:01
- 2 The difference between US/Canada and Europe is mainly due to the fact that in most European institutions, applicants to a PhD program are expected to held a Masters or equivalent degree, and the PhD program is often research only with close to no coursework. Compare to North American institutions where applicants to a PhD program are not expected to hold a Masters, and generally only hold a Bachelors degree, and where the program tends to be longer with a more significant coursework portion. – Willie Wong Jun 8, 2016 at 13:40
- Note also that the European application process for entering a PhD program is often quite different from the typical North American one. (Search on this site if you want to know more; I'm sure it has been asked before.) – Willie Wong Jun 8, 2016 at 13:41
- @NeerajKumar Not necessarily equations. Almost certainly inequalities such as the element relation. – Jacob Murray Wakem Jun 8, 2016 at 15:35
- @JacobWakem I don't understand what the term element relation is but isn't the presence of inequalities dependent on the topic? For example, a thesis in algebraic topology or geometry is most likely to not use any inequalities but one in functional analysis or number theory may have a lot of it.. – Neeraj Kumar Jun 9, 2016 at 4:03

I think this varies a lot. But for Germany your first question can be answers succinctly: In a Master's thesis you should show that you have potential for research .
On the other hand, expectations vary a lot between advisors. But certainly you do not have to prove a new theorem or develop a new theory.
How much is it valued (if at all) when one applies for PhD?
I can only answer for the situation where you apply in Germany. The thesis can be a door opener if it is topic closely related to the field where you want to do a PhD. Also a good mark is important. But also in Germany hiring professors will often contact your advisors or request a reference letter and this is much more important.
I have heard that its value is more in Europe than America, which if I were to guess I would say, may be due to no GRE like criterion. Is this true?
Not sure on this point since I can't provide a comparison with the US and also I am not sure if the situation is uniform with the EU.
- Thanks for the answer. As I mentioned, there are the two extremes in the kinds of thesis. In the first I can imagine the potential for research to be clearly visible( since they are doing actual research work) but how about the second case? If the work is only the study of a topic then? I doubt if it would reflect much on the potential to do research. Though one consideration that I can imagine is if the person spends his thesis studying on a certain topic then would it be of any advantage if person applies into that topic for PhD. Are such considerations taken into account? – Neeraj Kumar May 26, 2016 at 15:37
- Sorry if this is not getting more concrete, but, e. g., a literature review thesis can or can not show research potential. If your question is: What do I have to do in a Master's thesis do get a PhD position, the answer is "Nobody can tell you in advance." Go ahead and choose a thesis topic you find thrilling and write a good thesis. – Dirk May 26, 2016 at 16:27
From my knowledge of the US system (I did my graduate work in the US, and am currently a professor in the US), the average level of a masters thesis is relatively low. (That said, it usually does involve at least some original research).
The reason for this is the structure of Ph.D. programs in the US. Usually students are admitted to Ph.D. programs directly as undergraduates, and the first two years of the Ph.D. are similar to an MS program in Europe. Students who complete a Ph.D. don't generally write a masters thesis along the way. Rather, masters theses are usually written by students who decide in their second year not to continue with our Ph.D. program, but would still like to earn some sort of degree for their efforts. These theses are often weak (but sometimes are quite good).
Some students do use an MS as a stepping stone to Ph.D. programs elsewhere; indeed, I personally know students who successfully transferred to much stronger programs. Their MS-level work was much better than average.
In short: The degree itself won't be highly valued in the US, but doing an MS can lead to strong letters from your professors and research advisors, and these will be highly valued.
- Another complication with master's theses, in the U.S., is a perception that the student "will do a PhD thesis anyway" if they go on to a PhD program, and so there is less need for the master's thesis to include challenging research. The motivation for writing a master's thesis becomes different from the motivation for writing a PhD thesis. – Oswald Veblen Jun 9, 2016 at 21:19
A great resource I have used to understand the quality of final thesis work for my primary focus is the Open Access Theses and Dissertations which has thousands of master's and Ph. D. final publications. Research this website using your topic and you will see what amount of research is involved, differences and similarities between schools, methodologies, etc.
In addition, a great site for further publications is http://Arxiv.org . Many thesis in the U.S. are 'sandwich' publications, involving an assortment of publications published while student is performing research.

- baccalaureate degree in mathematics or a related field from a regionally accredited university
- official transcripts from each institution where course credit was granted
- minimum 2.75 GPA in the last 60 hours of undergraduate course work (plus any completed graduate courses)
- GRE not required
- statement of purpose
- three letters of recommendation addressing the substance and quality of the student’s preparation for graduate study
TOEFL, PTE, or IELTS Scores
Non-native English speakers who do not qualify for an English proficiency waiver:
- official TOEFL iBT scores required with a 78 overall
- official PTE scores required with a 52
- official IELTS (academic) scores required with a 6.5 overall and minimum individual module scores of 6.0
This program does not offer admission if the scores above are not met.
The Master of Science (M.S.) degree with a major in Mathematics concentration in applied mathematics requires 30 semester credit hours, including a thesis. Students who do not have the appropriate background course work may be required to complete leveling courses.
Comprehensive examination requirement.
All candidates for graduate degrees must pass a comprehensive examination consisting of three parts. A student may fail up to two times on one or more of the three parts of the comprehensive exam. After failing any given part of the comprehensive exam twice, a student will then be advised to retake the course(s). Provided they earn at least a C in each retaken class, they will then be permitted one final attempt at passing the corresponding part(s) of the comprehensive exam.
Students who do not successfully complete the requirements for the degree within the timelines specified will be dismissed from the program.
If a student elects to follow the thesis option for the degree, a committee to direct the written thesis will be established. The thesis must demonstrate the student’s capability for research and independent thought. Preparation of the thesis must be in conformity with the Graduate College Guide to Preparing and Submitting a Thesis or Dissertation .
The student must submit an official Thesis Proposal Form and proposal to his or her thesis committee. Thesis proposals vary by department and discipline. Please see your department for proposal guidelines and requirements. After signing the form and obtaining committee members’ signatures, the graduate advisor’s signature if required by the program and the department chair’s signature, the student must submit the Thesis Proposal Form with one copy of the proposal attached to the dean of The Graduate College for approval before proceeding with research on the thesis. If the thesis research involves human subjects, the student must obtain exemption or approval from the Texas State Institutional Review Board prior to submitting the proposal form to The Graduate College. The IRB approval letter should be included with the proposal form. If the thesis research involves vertebrate animals, the proposal form must include the Texas State IACUC approval code. It is recommended that the thesis proposal form be submitted to the dean of The Graduate College by the end of the student’s enrollment in 5399A. Failure to submit the thesis proposal in a timely fashion may result in delayed graduation.
The thesis committee must be composed of a minimum of three approved graduate faculty members.
Thesis Enrollment and Credit
The completion of a minimum of six hours of thesis enrollment is required. For a student's initial thesis course enrollment, the student will need to register for thesis course number 5399A. After that, the student will enroll in thesis B courses, in each subsequent semester until the thesis is defended with the department and approved by The Graduate College. Preliminary discussions regarding the selection of a topic and assignment to a research supervisor will not require enrollment for the thesis course.
Students must be enrolled in thesis credits if they are receiving supervision and/or are using university resources related to their thesis work. The number of thesis credit hours students enroll in must reflect the amount of work being done on the thesis that semester. It is the responsibility of the committee chair to ensure that students are making adequate progress toward their degree throughout the thesis process. Failure to register for the thesis course during a term in which supervision is received may result in postponement of graduation. After initial enrollment in 5399A, the student will continue to enroll in a thesis B course as long as it takes to complete the thesis. Thesis projects are by definition original and individualized projects. As such, depending on the topic, methodology, and other factors, some projects may take longer than others to complete. If the thesis requires work beyond the minimum number of thesis credits needed for the degree, the student may enroll in additional thesis credits at the committee chair's discretion. In the rare case when a student has not previously enrolled in thesis and plans to work on and complete the thesis in one term, the student will enroll in both 5399A and 5399B.
The only grades assigned for thesis courses are PR (progress), CR (credit), W (withdrew), and F (failing). If acceptable progress is not being made in a thesis course, the instructor may issue a grade of F. If the student is making acceptable progress, a grade of PR is assigned until the thesis is completed. The minimum number of hours of thesis credit (“CR”) will be awarded only after the thesis has been both approved by The Graduate College and released to Alkek Library.
A student who has selected the thesis option must be registered for the thesis course during the term or Summer I (during the summer, the thesis course runs ten weeks for both sessions) in which the degree will be conferred.
Thesis Deadlines and Approval Process
Thesis deadlines are posted on The Graduate College website under "Current Students." The completed thesis must be submitted to the chair of the thesis committee on or before the deadlines listed on The Graduate College website.
The following must be submitted to The Graduate College by the thesis deadline listed on The Graduate College website:
- The Thesis Submission Approval Form bearing original (wet) and/or electronic signatures of the student and all committee members.
- One (1) PDF of the thesis in final form, approved by all committee members, uploaded in the online Vireo submission system.
After the dean of The Graduate College approves the thesis, Alkek Library will harvest the document from the Vireo submission system for publishing in the Digital Collections database (according to the student's embargo selection). NOTE: MFA Creative Writing theses will have a permanent embargo and will never be published to Digital Collections.
While original (wet) signatures are preferred, there may be situations as determined by the chair of the committee in which obtaining original signatures is inefficient or has the potential to delay the student's progress. In those situations, the following methods of signing are acceptable:
- signing and faxing the form
- signing, scanning, and emailing the form
- notifying the department in an email from their university's or institution's email account that the committee chair can sign the form on their behalf
- electronically signing the form using the university's licensed signature platform.
If this process results in more than one document with signatures, all documents need to be submitted to The Graduate College together.
No copies are required to be submitted to Alkek Library. However, the library will bind copies submitted that the student wants bound for personal use. Personal copies are not required to be printed on archival quality paper. The student will take the personal copies to Alkek Library and pay the binding fee for personal copies.
