Pure Mathematics

This 120 EC research specialisation is built up as follows:

A. Track courses 40 EC
B. Mathematical electives 14 EC
C. Master electives 12 EC
D. Master Thesis Project Mathematics 40 EC
E. Master Seminar 3 EC
F. Professional Preparation 2 EC
G. Philosophy 3 EC
H. Free electives 6 EC

Overall, a maximum of 12 ec of third year bachelor's courses in Mathematics is allowed, to be approved by the examination board.

A. Track courses (40 EC)

For the core track Pure Mathematics choose at least 40 EC from the list of track courses below. You have to choose courses from different rows. If you are interested in more than one course per row, you can always choose them as elective courses. Note that not all courses are taught every year. Please look at this year's course offerings.

Course information and schedules for the Mastermath courses may be found on the Mastermath website.

B. Mathematical electives (14 EC)

Mathematical electives are courses within the field of Mathematics on Master's level. The mathematical electives need to be approved by the Examination Board.

C. Master electives (up to 12 EC)

Master electives are courses in any field within or outside of Mathematics. You can also consider courses from the societal specialisations or NWI-FNWI002 Scientific English (3 EC, every quarter) to support your writing process. These electives need to be approved by the Examination Board.

D. Master Thesis Project Mathematics (40 EC)

Including a literature study, a thesis (which can be an internship report) and a graduation defense.

E. NWI-WM115B Master seminar (3 EC)

The Master seminar should be taken in the first year of the master's programme.

F. NWI-WM301 Professional Preparation for Math (2 EC)

G. Philosophy (3 EC)

One of the courses below should be completed. Not all courses are taught every year and some courses have a limited number of places and priority for certain student groups.

H. Free electives (up to 6 EC)

Free electives are any academic courses, both bachelor and master level.
