Our Master's program is typically composed of four semesters (and 120 credit points) and builds off of the Bachelor's program. During your Master's studies, you may embark upon an individualized concentration in a specific topic of your choice. The concentration can and should be designed by the student but a Faculty Mentor is available for consulting on the choice of coursework. Two profiles are offered for your concentration, building on the research strengths of the Institute of Mathematics.
These profiles ensure a consistent, steady, and research-oriented course plan each semester. Each of these profiles can cover the Master's program requirements. It is further possible to combine courses from both profiles or replace them by still other courses.
With the start of the winter term 2019/20 the language of this Master's program is English. You can find more information in the section "Application and Matriculation".
Use the self-assessment to test whether you have sufficient knowledge and skills in mathematics to successfully complete the Master's program in Mathematics. The self-assessment includes a reading list with books that are available online for free. You can use these books to fill any gaps in your knowledge and to improve your skills.
The students choose a minor subject comprising 18 credit points among the following subjects:
The language of instruction may depend on the subject. You can find more information concerning the required language skills on the web sites of the subjects in the section "Prerequisites for Master's Studies".
