The three-year degree in Mathematics provides a sound basic knowledge in all areas of Mathematics, a good command of the scientific method, along with IT, computational, and language skills. The programme trains students to develop high skills of synthesis and abstraction. The demand for such skills is increasingly strong in both public and private research organizations, in the industry, banking, finance and insurance sectors, and in high-technology services. This academic background is also essential to those wishing to specialize in applied mathematics or start a career in scientific research, and for those willing to study teaching and learning methodologies and to work in the field of mathematical education.

Course content

The programme provides a thorough study of some of the main areas of Mathematics: Algebra, Geometry, Mathematical Analysis, Mathematical Physics, Probability Theory, Numerical Analysis. Courses in Physics and Computer Science are also provided, along with Computational and Computer lab activities. A wide range of additional courses are offered to give students the opportunity to choose different training paths. Through practical exercises, workshops and drawing up the degree thesis, students have the opportunity to independently develop their abilities and interests.

Career options

The natural study programme of Mathematics may continue with a Master's Degree Programme in Mathematics to specialise in Teaching, Applied Mathematics, or Scientific Research, or a vocational master programme (1st level) As far as employment opportunities are concerned, approximately half of graduates in Mathematics work as Mathematics teachers or as experts in the dissemination of science. The remaining half of graduates are mainly involved in highly qualified technical or professional support activities in industry, finance, services and public administration. The Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics allows graduates to access the Master's Degree Programme in Mathematics without credit obligations.
