During the program there is specialization in one area of mathematics (concentration area). This can be either from for pure or applied mathematical modules. Typically, the master’s thesis is written in this area.

Application Subjects

In addition, there is a large number of application subjects from the natural sciences, the humanities and the engineering sciences. It is possible to prepare a master’s thesis in cooperation with these application areas. It is also possible to change your application subject when transitioning from a Bachelor to a Master upon request.

English Language Option

It is possible to obtain the Masters in Mathematics entirely in English, if you choose Applied Mathematics as your concentration area. As minors (application areas) taught in English, you may currently choose from physics, applied geophysics, and computer science.

Programme Structures

The mathematics modules are broken down into three groups: pure mathematics, applied mathematics, and a concentration. The course of study schedule gives you an initial look at the freedom of choice within the course of study:
