Program description:
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.

Entry requirements:
