Master Mathematics

Preface on the qualification objectives of the Masters Course 

The Master's degree ‚Mathematics’ builds on a completed undergraduate degree in mathematics or a comparable degree. It is designed to provide trainees with a thorough scientific basis and knowledge, skills, and methods in the field of mathematics taking into account the requirements of the professional world. Graduates are capable of an independent and responsible evaluation of complex scientific problems and the practical application of solutions.

General study information

Standard period of study : 4 semesters; 120 ECTS credits

Degree awarded : Master of Science (M.Sc.) degree

Beginning : winter and summer semester (if you start at the beginning of the summer semester a course guidance is recommended).

Course contents: It is required to succesfully complete two of the three following elective modules (18 ECTS each) :

• Arithmetic Geometry (Algebraic Number Theory, Algebraic Geometry, ...)

• Global Analysis and Geometry (Differential Geometry, Algebraic Topology, ...)

• Applied Analysis (Functional Analysis, Partial Differential Equations, ...)

In addition, the student chooses an area of ​​specialization (18 ECTS have to be aquired), where the Master's thesis (30 ECTS) is written. Also mandatory is a Seminar Module (9 ECTS). 

In addition to the above mathematical courses, there is the ‚minor subject’ where at least 12 ECTS are required and courses in areas of ‚general interest’ (like a German language course) where at least 8 ECTS are required. In the minor subject and the general interest module together at least 27 ECTS are required.
