    Mathematics pure, applied and beyond – the Master's programme provides the unique opportunity to specialise in a large number of areas of our faculty's expertise.

    "Mathematics International" is a research-oriented master's programme that aims at students with special interest in mathematics as a scientific discipline who want to acquire a broad and deep knowledge of the field. To meet these expectations the department offers a great number of advanced courses at the master's level that address topics from many areas of pure and applied mathematics.

    The programme offers an efficient platform to specialise in a number of areas of current research interest. The students can choose from a variety of lectures, seminars and "Research in Groups" courses (RIGs) which provide solid knowledge of the field and familiarise them with the newest developments in mathematics. A special emphasis is put on "Research in Groups" courses, which give the students the additional opportunity to acquire and enhance soft skills, such as speaking and presentation techniques.

    The programme (120 ECTS credits in total) is divided into two parts: 

    • Lectures (at least 30 ECTS), Seminars and Research in Groups (at least 20 ECTS)
    • Master thesis (30 ECTS)

    The students can freely choose Lectures, Seminars and RIGs according to their individual interests from a variety of courses offered by the institute. Refer to the 

    • Catalogue of modules for the entire list of courses, and to the
    • Online class schedule  for the list of courses of the current and forthcoming semester.

    Our graduates pursue careers in a wide range of professions. Potential employers include universities, research institutes, companies engaged in research and development, administration, as well as small and medium enterprises. Mathematicians typically engage in pure research, or work in software development, management consulting, data security, communication, or information technology.

    As of summer semester 2019, students are required to pay only the student union and basic semester ticket fees in the amount of 129,90 Euro per semester.

    In order to defray the local expenses, qualified master's students may apply to work as tutors for the exercise classes within our undergraduate programme. As these classes are only taught in German, a good command of German and the German mathematical terminology is an indispensable condition for employment.
