* Not taught this year

For mandatory electives B, 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 Mathematical electives. 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 (18 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)
