As of academic year 2020-21, the programme consists of three different curricula: - General Curriculum - Teaching Curriculum - Data Science Curriculum. It is intended not only for Bachelor's graduates in Mathematics, but also for all graduates in Scientific, IT, Economics and Engineering disciplines wishing to gain an in-depth knowledge of Mathematics to enter a highly-qualified job market or continue their studies with a PhD programme.

Course content

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, Mathematical Physics, and 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.

Career options

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 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. Ultimately, graduates can get a full teaching qualification by participating in the activities provided by the Teacher Training programme.
