In addition to the Major Research Paper option, the M.Sc. in Mathematics program also offers a thesis option. A thesis requires students to become more deeply proficient in an area of mathematics than is standard in an MRP. A thesis is generally (depending on the topic) longer and more detailed than an MRP. Because of its more advanced nature, a thesis requires more time to complete than an MRP. Additionally, a thesis generally (but not always) contains multi- and inter-disciplinary aspects, and will usually involve research into advanced areas of mathematics and computational science.
