In the two-year research-based Master's programme you are invited to deepen your mathematical knowledge and specialise in a mathematical area of your interest. You can also challenge yourself to study related disciplines such as physics, logic and computational science from a mathematical perspective. With the opportunity to compile a curriculum that is tailored to your personal interests, the world of Mathematics is your oyster.

What does Mathematics at the UvA have to offer me?

  • Wide range of specialisations
    This Master's programme reflects the versatility of mathematics: it gives you the opportunity to specialise in a particular mathematical area of your interest, while expanding your knowledge of the whole discipline in general. Specifically, you choose one of the following four specialisations: Algebra and Geometry, Analysis and Dynamical Systems, Stochastics, Mathematical Physics.

  • Interdisciplinary challenges
    You can incorporate interdisciplinarity into your programme, either by choosing one or more interdisciplinary courses or by following a well described minor or major. An example of a minor is the Tesla minor, which focuses on business consultancy. If you are interested in teaching, the major Teaching (in Dutch) might be for you. This major gives you a first-level teaching qualification. 
  • Mastermath
    The Mathematics programme is also a part of Mastermath: a nationwide collaboration between the Mathematics departments of nine Dutch universities, through which joint courses are organised. These joint courses give you the highest quality of education, and let you interact with staff and students from outside the UvA.
