Programme contents

Based on the training programme chosen, the Master's Degree in Mathematics provides for a deep study of Algebra, Mathematical Analysis, Numerical Analysis, Geometry, Probability, and Mathematical Physics. The training offer also covers a wide range of optional teachings on various aspects ranging from Mathematics teaching to applied Mathematics. Internships in companies, banks or financial companies, or in schools are also part of the degree programme. A significant portion of the curriculum is devoted to the thesis, which allows students to prepare an original paper.

Job opportunities

Based on the training programme chosen, Master graduates in Mathematics may enrol in a Ph.D. programme, paving the way to universities or public and private institutions. Graduates can also strive for taking on managerial roles in highly specialized job markets, or working in the dissemination of scientific culture. They can also continue specialising in Applied Mathematics by enrolling in Vocational (first-level) or Advanced (second-level) Master Programmes or in other high-training programmes. Finally, graduates can complete the teaching qualification process through the activities set up for teacher training.
