Objectives and content

The programme is aimed at students with an interest in mathematics who intend to qualify for research, development or teaching and seek employment where education in mathematics is required or considered an advantage.

Within the Master’s Programme in Mathematics, you can choose among the following specialisations, mirroring the four main research groups within pure Mathematics:

  • Algebra: The Master’s programme in Algebra gives a general background in mathematics, with special focus on algebra and algebraic geometry. Algebra is a classical field that is associated with the study of polynomials in several variables. Mandatory courses: MAT224MAT242 and MAT243.
  • Algebraic Geometry: The Master’s programme in Algebraic geometry gives a general background in mathematics, with special focus on algebraic geometry. This is an area where one uses techniques from algebra and topology, and often also complex analysis or number theory, to study geometric objects as curves, surfaces and higher dimensional manifolds that can be defined through polynomial equations. Mandatory courses: MAT229MAT242MAT243.
  • Mathematical Analysis: The Master’s programme in Mathematical Analysis provides a general background in mathematics, with a special focus on mathematical analysis. The original meaning of the word “mathematical analysis” is closely associated with functions of one or more real variables, but modern analysis involves several other topics, some of a more abstract nature, such as general topology, measure theory and functional analysis. Mandatory courses: MAT214MAT215.
  • Topology: The Master’s programme in Topology provides a general background in mathematics, with a special focus on topology and geometry. Topology is a branch of mathematics where geometrical shapes, such as curves, surfaces and higher dimensional spaces, are studied. Mandatory courses: MAT242MAT243.

    Admission Requirements

    A first degree (bachelor´s degree) of three or four years´ duration from an approved institution of higher education, as well as proficiency in the English language.

    It is important to document the content and learning outcomes of the central mathematics subjects, either with attached course descriptions or with links to web pages where course descriptions can be found.

    For more information regarding admission look at the different specializations, as the admission requirement is different for each specialization.

    For international self-financing applicants

    Each year the Master’s Degree Programme in Mathematics receives more applications from international students than there are places available.

    The average grade of the Bachelor’s degree must be at least 2nd class upper division/B or the equivalent.

    Please see each specialization for more information regarding admission requirement. In your letter of motivation, please indicate which specialization (or specializations in prioritized order) you are mostly interested in, as admission requirements differ for the different specializations.

    How many places?

    Up to 5 places in total, combined for all specializations, are reserved for qualified international applicants in the Master’s Programme in Mathematics.
