Mathematics is the science of quantity, space and spatial relations, change and structure. It employs theories and methods to discover patterns and formulate laws. Through abstraction and logical reasoning, mathematics is used for counting, calculations and measurements of any kind. This science is very frequently used in day to day life and is essential even for the activity of many other fields. Applied mathematics is focused on the use of mathematical knowledge in other fields like science and engineering, while pure mathematics is concerned with the filed itself. Statistics, game theory and computational mathematics are a few of the disciplines that have evolved from applied mathematics.
A student graduating from mathematics studies will have numeracy skills, knowledge of arithmetic, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, good grasp of mathematical concepts and strong deductive reasoning, just to name a few. The graduates can also dedicate themselves to a teaching oriented career, in which they have to combine the mathematics related knowledge with pedagogy skills and convey the knowledge further to students.
This Master’s degree covers the whole chain of quantitative finance, from theoretical aspects to the application in a professional setting. This Master draws on the recognized excellence of our engineering school in quantitative finance, and makes great use of the collaborations with the Universities of Paris-Dauphine and Cergy-Pontoise.
The M.Sc. program takes two full years of study. All M.Sc. students complete their Individual Plans of Study (IPS). The IPS includes some mandatory items. However, most courses are student chosen (students can choose from a certain number of special topics courses and a certain number of research seminars). A course project must be completed by the end of the first year. By the end of their course of study, students are required to submit a Master’s thesis.
At Johns Hopkins, Financial Mathematics continues a rich engineering tradition whereby the strengths of the faculty in research, education and leadership are applied to expand knowledge and apply new knowledge for the benefit of humanity by addressing the complex problems of modern society. Understanding and navigating today’s rapidly evolving, world-wide economic and financial landscape presents one of society’s most challenging, modern problems.
The Master of Science in Medical Biology degree is intended for students who are interested in biological research in the medical field.
The Statistics Program offers the Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy degrees for graduate study and research in statistics and probability. Areas of faculty research activity include statistical decision and estimation theory, biostatistics, stochastic modeling, robust and nonparametric inference, semiparametric inference, categorical data analysis, theory and inference for stochastic processes, stochastic analysis, time series and spatial statistics.
The Master's Degree Econometrics Programme aims at educating specialists in econometrics recognized at international level that are capable to properly apply the contemporary knowledge of economics and statistics in developing econometric models for private and public institutions.
The Graduate Diploma in Maths and Engineering combines academic study, intensive English language teaching and study skills to prepare you for entry into a university Masters degree.
The financial and actuarial mathematics became very popular during last two decades, most universities over the world offer various programs in this field, and there is strong competition among students for these programs. It can be explained by constantly growing role of financial and insurance activities in the modern world. The program follows the guidelines of the International Actuarial Association, includes the necessary subjects and concludes with a Master’s thesis defense.
The postgraduate diploma course has been designed for students who want to continue their mathematics studies by delving more deeply into particular aspects of pure and applied mathematics. The modules may well be of interest to mathematically inclined scientists and engineers as well as to mathematicians.
You will study in a welcoming and informal yet research-intensive atmosphere. The degree programmes are flexible, and you can match the studies to your academic interests. While writing your Master’s thesis during the final year of your study, you will have an excellent opportunity to take part in current research projects running at the Department. A Master of Science degree at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics forms a solid basis for PhD studies.
Education Studies (EDS) at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) offers several programs for those interested in beginning careers in education or in furthering their study in the field of education.
The Master of Science in Behaviour, Evolution and Conservation degree is intended for students who wish to combine an advanced approach to ecology and sciences of evolution with the possibility of working with fauna and/or flora.
