The Mathematical Sciences programme at University of Primorska is intended for those students who want to further their knowledge of mathematics acquired at the undergraduate level.


The courses in the Mathematical Sciences programme at University of Primorska are designed in such a way that, upon completion of the degree, students have several opportunities to choose from: continuation with doctoral studies, employment in industry or the public sector, or switching to other sciences, well equipped with the knowledge they have gained.

The courses are mostly elective and cover various topical mathematical areas. Of course, detailed understanding of these topics requires a certain knowledge of basic mathematical concepts that students learn at the undergraduate level (see Admission requirementsbelow). Depending on the students' enthusiasm, skills, interests and ambitions/plans for the future, they can be introduced to research mathematics. The latter mainly depends on the help of a supervisor for the master's thesis. There are also some courses offered in applied mathematics which are particularly suitable for students interested in the financial sector and the secondary sector (manufacturing and industry).

Educational and professional goals  top

  • Students gain and consolidate an in-depth knowledge of the special mathematical areas.
  • Students who intend to continue their studies in the doctoral programme are gradually introduced to research mathematics.
  • Students interested in financial mathematics gain some specific knowledge of applied mathematics. For example, probability and statistics courses are particularly important for those interested in the finance, insurance or banking sectors.
