Information on possible minor subjects in mathematics

Special features

Not specified


After a solid grounding, the study program offers the opportunity to get to know current areas of mathematics. All disciplines of modern mathematics (algebra, analysis, geometry, topology, number theory...) are represented in Regensburg. Special focus areas at the highest international level exist in Regensburg in "Applied Analysis", "Number Theory and Algebraic Geometry" and in "Geometry and Global Analysis". Exercises are held in small groups for all lectures. These are a central component of the program and serve to deepen the understanding of the lecture content.

Professional prospects / competencies

Mathematicians are not only particularly qualified for professions in which concrete mathematical problems are relevant, but also where structured, problem-oriented and creative thinking is required. They work in the following areas, among others:

  • Banks and insurance companies
  • Research and development
  • Software production, IT services
  • Electronics: telecommunications, medical technology, consumer electronics
  • Management consultancy
  • Management
