Master of Science in Mathematics

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.

Profile: Structures in Mathematics inspired by Physics

Profile: Mathematical Modelling and Data Analysis

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. The exact Master's requirements are set in the study regulations for Master of Mathematics and general regulations (in German).

Entry into Program 

The Master's program can be entered in either Winter or Summer Semester.

Application and Matriculation

  • The Master's program currently has no restrictions on admission. 
  • The official language of the Master's program is German. However, there are English language course offerings. You may thus apply without the required German language skills.
  • You can find information on eligibility and admission requirements, applying and registering as well as corresponding deadlines on the University website.
  • The admission requirements include a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics or a comparable degree with substantial Mathematics coursework. The exact regulations are in the Master's Eligibility Regulation (general part and admission requirements (in German)).
