The aim of the masters program in mathematics is to give a comprehensive knowledge of several areas in pure mathematics, and introduce students into doing research. A large number of courses is offered, covering several areas of theoretical mathematics (algebra, real and complex analysis, differential equations, discrete mathematics, geometry, number theory, operations research, stochastics, topology). Besides purely theoretical courses, some courses are application oriented, giving state-of-the-art introduction into fields like financial mathematics, theoretical computer science or interdisciplinary subjects as bioinformatics. The program ends with writing a thesis.

Specialisation year available:
Our graduates will be able to apply for Ph.D. studies either at Eötvös Loránd University or anywhere in the world. Many students will, however, continue their career immediately in the industrial research and development, often at high tech industries in telecommunication, financial institutions or insurance companies or in software development of such research giants as Google.
