DescriptionMathematics is the science of structures in a broad sense. They may be numerical structures, spatial structures, colour structures, musical structures, logical structures or a thousand other things. Mathematicians study these structures: they form them, stretch them, bend them, play with them and form connections between them.
When you start looking, you find structures everywhere. And mathematics is the language that we use to express many of our deepest thoughts about the world. Mathematical applications can be used as a way to get inside the structures. Or you can become engrossed in the abstract game. You're allowed - in fact, you're encouraged! - to use both approaches as a graduate student in mathematics.
A graduate in mathematics will be able to:
- Conduct independent, stringent argumentation
- Structure a study of open mathematical issues
- Define mathematical disciplines in relation to each other, but also to take advantage of interdisciplinary skills.
- Independently take responsibility for his or her own professional development and specialisation.
- Read and understand original mathematical literature
- Convey and communicate mathematical issues and problems on a scientific basis
- Explain, orally and in writing, mathematical studies of open issues.
Career OpportunitiesMSc graduates in Mathematics have many different job opportunities, and there is basically no unemployment. Many graduates find employment in the private sector, where they either work specifically with applying mathematics to specialised problems, for instance within economics or telecommunications, or act as "trouble shooters" in a broader sense.
When employers are asked why they hire Mathematics graduates, they often emphasise the mathematician's abilities to see patterns in problems that often arise and to solve them once and for all.
There is also a high demand for mathematics teachers in upper secondary education and other post compulsory education programmes. Moreover, there is the opportunity to continue conducting research in mathematics after earning a PhD.
