In the two-year research-based Master's programme you are invited to deepen your mathematical knowledge and specialise in a mathematical area of your interest. You can also challenge yourself to study related disciplines such as physics, logic and computational science from a mathematical perspective. With the opportunity to compile a curriculum that is tailored to your personal interests, the world of Mathematics is your oyster.
This year, you won’t be able to attend any busy on-campus events with lots of people. But our online Open House is the perfect way to get to know UvA study programmes and university life from the comfort of your own home.
Every study programme has an Open House page with videos, FAQs and live events. On the main Open House website you can discover all our programmes, explore the city and campus, and get inspired during our theme weeks.
1. Wide range of specialisations
This Master's programme reflects the versatility of mathematics: it gives you the opportunity to specialise in a particular mathematical area of your interest, while expanding your knowledge of the whole discipline in general. Specifically, you choose one of the following four specialisations: Algebra and Geometry, Analysis and Dynamical Systems, Stochastics, Mathematical Physics.
2. Interdisciplinary challenges
You can incorporate interdisciplinarity into your programme, either by choosing one or more interdisciplinary courses or by following a well described minor or major. An example of a minor is the Tesla minor, which focuses on business consultancy. If you are interested in teaching, the major Teaching (in Dutch) might be for you. This major gives you a first-level teaching qualification.
The Mathematics programme is also a part of Mastermath: a nationwide collaboration between the Mathematics departments of nine Dutch universities, through which joint courses are organised. These joint courses give you the highest quality of education, and let you interact with staff and students from outside the UvA.
