Umea University's Mathematics programme will equip you with a solid theoretical foundation for pursuing careers in research and development, be it in government, finance, the tech industry or academia.
You will be part of a small, human-sized Master's programme and Mathematics department, giving the possibility for richer and more personal interactions between students and teachers. During their first course on the programme, incoming students choose a mentor from one of our three main research groups – Discrete Mathematics, Analysis and Modelling, and Computational Mathematics. The mentor follows the student through the programme, giving advice on the choice of courses and thesis topics, as well as on applications to PhD programmes.
Beyond the programme's core courses and thesis projects, there is a great flexibility about choosing courses both from mathematics and from closely related fields such as computer science and statistics. Teaching on the programme consists of a mixture of lectures, seminars and individual supervision. All teaching on the programme is done in English and by active researchers. Students on the programme also have the opportunity of taking part in a semester-long exchange abroad at partner mathematics departments in Italy, France, Spain, the UK, China, South Korea and Kazakhstan as part of their studies.
