The Department of Mathematics in King Abdulaziz University (KAU) offers a number of graduate programs leading to the degrees of Master.


MSc in Mathematics from King Abdulaziz University is designed for applicants holding a bachelor degree with a major study in Mathematics, to undertake further studies in mathematics as preparation for a postgraduate research degree. This program is designed to expand and consolidate existing mathematics knowledge and to develop skills in undertaking research projects in mathematics. It is also suitable for mathematics graduate students who have worked for a few years and need to improve their skills and knowledge. 

Learning outcomes

The Master of Mathematics offers a substantial opportunity for independent study and research in the form of courses and thesis. The diversity of graduate courses offered in the department of mathematics gives the student an opportunity to specialize in one of the several fields of pure and applied mathematics. 

The thesis is undertaken under the direction of a supervisor and will typically involve examining and writing in a specific area of mathematics with the requirement of obtaining original results. A thesis gives students the opportunity to develop broader skills in the processes of organising, communicating and presenting their work and will prepare students well for further research. 

Students graduating from the Master of Mathematics will be able to:

  • Work individually or within a team and learn the initiative spirit and bear responsibility for different circumstances;
  • Exploit reasonable and creative thinking, linking introductions to results and problem explaining which require mathematical methods;
  • Apply integrated and advanced understanding of a complex body of knowledge in either pure or applied mathematics;
  • Explain and transmit mathematical skills, knowledge, and ideas to academic and non-academic audiences; and
  • Pursue advanced studies in the field of mathematics which align with the 2030 Vision of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the National Transition Program orientations and aspirations.
