The Mathematics Master programme offers courses in the following specialisations:

Algebra, Geometry and Number Theory (including Erasmus Mundus Algant)

Applied Mathematics

Mathematics and Communication

Mathematics and Education

Each specialisation offers courses at an advanced level, leading eventually to an individual research project and a Master’s thesis. Some of the courses (at least 30 EC) are to be taken at a national level, via the Dutch national mastermath programme. The length of each specialisation is two years. Students from any university in the Netherlands with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mathematics or with a Bachelor of Science Degree with major in Mathematics are admitted to the programme. For all other students, an Admission Committee will consider the possibility of enrolling.
