The Mathematical Sciences Master's programme is offered at University of Gothenburg, Faculty of Science. Examples of applications in which mathematical and statistical models and methods are necessary for success are
At the same time, the strong tradition of research in pure mathematics is continuing, where the goal of the research is simply to follow the human need to explore, and to understand the logical consequences of axioms. The interplay between these two sides of our field makes this a very exciting time to study mathematics.
All teaching in the program is in English by dedicated and skilled teachers. English is the second language in Sweden, and virtually anyone is able and willing to speak English. Hence, communicating in everyday life in Sweden is easy for all English speakers. The program is tuition-free for anyone that is a citizen in a country that is a member of EU, or any of the countries Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.
Mathematicians and statisticians work in diverse areas of research and development, such as
They also work in other activities that require advanced mathematical or statistical techniques, for example to optimize the use of resources with respect to the environment and the economy, or to set option prices or insurance premiums.
The program can be customized with mathematical depth or width and subject specializations for a future in any of these areas. After completion of the program you will also be well prepared to continue with studies for a PhD in mathematics, mathematical statistics and related areas.
SACO, the dominating Swedish trade union confederation for academics, estimates that the demand for mathematicians and statisticians in Sweden will be high five years ahead. It is estimated that the labor market will expand and that competition for jobs is low. This is a global job market and the same will most probably be true in a majority of the countries around the globe.
Tuition fee for the international students.)
European Economic Area tuition fee is applicable to the students from EU countries, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.)
*Application and tuition fees do not apply for EU/E29EA citizens or exchange students.
There are four specializations within the program: Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Financial Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics. Each specialization has a wide range of advanced courses to choose from, many of which are shared with the PhD program. It is also possible to take courses in other subjects.
There is a great freedom of choice in the program. There is a single common compulsory course and, apart from this, there are in the various specializations requirements to take 4-8 courses from lists of recommended specialization courses. The remaining 3-7 courses may be chosen freely.
The program contains a thesis of 30 credits, which can be done in cooperation with an actor outside the university or in one of the research groups at the Department of Mathematical Sciences.
The program is offered by the Department of Mathematical Sciences in a close collaboration between the University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of Technology. The specialization Financial Mathematics is also given in cooperation with the School of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg.
The Department of Mathematical Sciences has strong traditions in both pure and applied research. It is a joint department, part of both University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of Technology, and is the largest department in mathematical sciences in the Nordic countries. The large size opens up many opportunities for collaborations, and there are many specializations possible. We have research groups in
No work experience is required.
