This programme will suit anyone who is interested in mathematics and wants to apply his or her skills to problem solving and for creating new mathematical models. It also gives you the possibility to start an academic career.
There are three specializations (all end with a master thesis work).
Analysis with Mathematical Physics: Gives you a comprehensive education in mathematics, aimed at mathematical physics. You study courses in complex analysis, distribution theory, and partial differential equations.
Algebra with Cryptography and Coding: You study general courses in mathematics and modelling besides courses in algebra, number theory, cryptography and coding theory.
Mathematical Statistics and Financial Mathematics: You study courses in mathematics but you also train stochastic thinking and statistic skills. It contains courses in e.g. probability theory, stochastic analysis, insurance mathematics and financial modelling.
We also have an agreement with the University of Insubria in Como in Italy, where a corresponding programme is offered. This means that you have a large selection of courses to choose from. You also have the possibility to, without any study fees, study one or two semesters in Como in order to be conferred a so-called double degree i.e., a degree from two different universities, which may be an advantage if you are considering an international career.
General entry requirements for second-cycle studies and specific entry requirements: Bachelor Degree in Mathematics, Physics, Electronics, Computer Science, Economics or the equivalent, including 60 credits in Mathematics English B/6 or the equivalent.
I acquired the skill of critical thinking
At Linnaeus University I acquired the skill of critical thinking as an important tool to understand processes better and reflect why and how business and society progress in the way they do.
