The Master’s Degree in Mathematics is research oriented and offers the student up-to-date knowledge in the core fields of research carried out within the department. The student can choose his specialisation from the directions of analysis, geometry, inverse problems and stochastics.

Programme description

Study objectives

The international Master’s Programme in Mathematics is research-oriented and provides students with up-to-date knowledge in one of the core fields of research (analysis, geometry, inverse problems, probability and stochastics) at our department. The aim of the programme is to prepare students for working life, so that they are able to work as experts and developers in their own field. There is also a possibility to continue with postgraduate studies in mathematics.

To apply for the Master’s Degree Programme in Mathematics, you should have an undergraduate degree in mathematics.

Language of instruction

All courses are taught in English. The literature is in English. You may include courses conducted in Finnish in your degree.

Choosing a main subject or field of specialization

You can choose to specialize to either analysis and geometry or probability and stochastics. Within these lines, there are the research groups and areas to which the students will be attached.

Tuition fees

Tuition is free for citizens of EU/EEA countries and Switzerland. In addition, students who are in possession of a valid residence permit in Finland of the type A, P, P-EU, EU Blue Card, or residence card for a family member of an EU citizen, are exempted from paying tuition for the duration of the validity of the permit.

other students, the tuition fee in this programme is 12 000 € per academic year. The University of Jyväskylä offers a scholarship programme for students liable to pay tuition fees. This scholarship can be applied for when applying for admission to the programme, using the same online application form. In each Master’s programme, two (2) 100% scholarships and four (4) 50% scholarships are available for applications. The scholarships are awarded based on the admission criteria of the programme.

Non-Finnish students in the English-taught Master’s degree programmes of the Faculty of Mathematics and Science, who are not eligible for Kela’s (The Social Insurance Institution of Finland) student financial aid, can apply for a scholarship for living expenses from the Faculty.

Additional information on tuition fees and scholarships is available on JYU website.

Career opportunities

With a Master’s degree in mathematics, one can continue with doctoral studies or find employment outside the university. There is nowadays an increasing demand for mathematicians outside academia. Some typical areas and corresponding mathematical fields include:

  • Economics (Finance and Insurance; the international Basel- and Solvency-Contracts): stochastics, analysis (in particular, the theory of partial differential equations), numerics.
  • Medicine (image processing): inverse problems and numerics.
  • Big Data management in health care organisations and computer science: statistics and stochastics.
  • Modeling and mathematical optimization in Biology, in the Energy Sector, but also in small production sites: analysis, geometry, and stochastics.

Postgraduate study opportunities

The Master’s degree qualifies students for postgraduate studies in mathematics, in particular in the areas analysis, geometry, probability and stochastics. Postgraduate studies in statistics might be possible as well if the student did complete an a-priori fixed amount of courses in statistics within the Master’s Programme.

Study contents

The Master’s programme comprises ECTS 120 (ECTS = European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System credits).

  • 60 ECTS of these are acquired from courses in mathematics, where about 1/3 are general mandatory courses, 1/3 are chosen from the field of specialization according to Line 1 or Line 2 (see below), and 1/3 are topic classes within the research group the student belongs to.
  • 30 ECTS are acquired by writing the Master’s thesis.
  • 30 ECTS are acquired from freely chosen subjects. These include courses offered by the other departments within the faculty of Mathematics and Science, the faculty of Information technology, Jyväskylä University School of Business and Economics, Language Center, etc.

In compulsory and advanced courses, you develop mathematical knowledge within the lines

  • Line 1: analysis, geometry and inverse problems
  • Line 2: probability and stochastics

Within the Line 1, you may choose your field of specialization from Analysis on Metric Spaces, Differential Geometry, Non-linear Partial Differential Equations, Calculus of Variations, Geometric Analysis, and Inverse Problems.

Within the Line 2, possible fields of specialization are Stochastic Analysis, Finance and Insurance, Stochastic Differential Equations, and Monte Carlo methods.

Structure of studies

The Master’s programme comprises ECTS 120 (ECTS = European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System credits).

  • 60 ECTS of these are acquired from courses in mathematics, where about 1/3 are general mandatory courses, 1/3 are chosen from the field of specialization according to Line 1 or Line 2 (see below), and 1/3 are topic classes within the research group the student belongs to.
  • 30 ECTS are acquired by writing the Master’s thesis.
  • 30 ECTS are dedicated to freely chosen study courses that besides Mathematics Statistics may contain  courses eg.  from other departments within the faculty of Mathematics and Science, the faculty of Information technology, Jyväskylä University School of Business and Economics, Language Center, etc.

Final project

The Master’s thesis (30 ECTs) is based on a topic selected from the field of your specialization. The purpose of the thesis is to advance your knowledge and skills to work independently on your chosen topic under the supervision of a researcher working in this field. The excellent student-faculty ratio allows for an individual supervision. If you are interested in research, your thesis work can often be the first step towards your doctoral dissertation.

Internationalization

The research at our department is internationally recognized especially in the fields of geometry, inverse problems, nonlinear PDEs and stochastic analysis. At the moment, the staff at the department of Mathematics and Statistics includes 20 foreign researchers from 6 European countries and from China, Vietnam, India, Peru, and the United States. Moreover, the department has numerous Erasmus contracts and has in recent years attracted students especially from Germany and Spain.

Research focus

Our main research areas are mathematical analysis, stochastics, inversion problems and statistics. The research at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics is scientifically impressive and internationally valued. We belong to significant concentrations of mathematical research both in Finland and abroad. The Department of Mathematics and Statistics is a member in several center of excellence units of research co-operating with other universities.
