DescriptionMathematics is part of day-to-day life – of using your debit card and
navigating with GPS, just as much as making calculations in physics or
chemistry or working out the pot odds in an important hand of poker. The
two-year MSc in Mathematics programme at Aarhus University is open to students
from higher education institutions both in Denmark and abroad.
Teaching at the university is greatly influenced by the research conducted here, as the lecturers are active researchers. The MSc thesis, written during the final year of the programme, carries considerable weight, and in this context students benefit from the informal atmosphere between staff and students. When writing the thesis, students have excellent opportunities to be connected with a group of researchers and can participate in the group’s research projects and scientific discussions. Students can specialise in a subject within a broad area, including one of the three areas of mathematics in which Aarhus University is particularly strong: algebra and combinatorics, analysis, and geometry and topology.
Career OpportunitiesA mathematics degree is the key to a huge variety of careers. Aarhus
University educates mathematicians for both Danish and international job
markets. Graduates from the Department of Mathematics find work across a wide
range of fields and institutions – in finance, communication or the wind-power
industry in the private sector, as well as teaching in Danish high school. A
high proportion of our MSc graduates stay on in academia as PhD students at
Aarhus University, elsewhere in Denmark, or abroad.
