The Master's Program in Mathematics builds on the Bachelor's Program and imparts deeper scientific knowledge, as well as the ability to apply methods and knowledge of mathematics and to conduct research in a selected mathematical field.

About

The master’s program in mathematics has a research orientation. Building on an initial degree, academic knowledge is deepened, and students acquire the ability to work on academic principles independently, learning to apply academic methods and findings. The master’s program offers students the possibility of deepening previously acquired knowledge in one of the following domains: analysis, discrete mathematics, algebraic/complex geometry, numerical mathematics, differential geometry, or topology.

With certain restrictions, it is possible to complete the master’s degree program by taking classes solely in English. The necessary English language skills must as a rule be proven by exam results.
