Bachelor of Science


As a structural science or science of formal systems, the aim of mathematics is to prove statements regarding mathematical structures and objects using the principles of logic. Especially in applied mathematics, experiments and empirical knowledge provide aids and impulses to formulate such statements. Based on these statements or assumptions (axioms) that are presumed to be true, mathematicians develop theories that are transferable and applicable to as many real-life scenarios as possible.

To be able to put forward such universal assumptions, students first acquire basic skills in mathematical work using analytical, algebraic and algorithmic methods. Following this, students specialize in a certain area, e.g. “Algebra,” “Number Theory and Logic,” “Stochastic Processes,” “Analysis and Differential Equations” or “Geometry and Topology”. The choice of a minor—usually physics, computer science or economics—and completion of either a practical project in programming, an internship in industry, or a tutorship are also integral parts of the program.

The aim of the program is for students to develop and expand their analytical thinking. In addition, students learn to solve problems on an abstract level.

Possible lines of work:

Insurance industry, banking, IT, financial/personnel services firms, corporate consultants, industrial research and development (e.g. automotive industry/energy sector/medtech and biotech), logistics, academia (teaching/research at universities, research institutions, etc.) teaching at a German public school

University entrance qualification (e.g. Abitur)

German language proficiency (CEFR level C1)

At the University of Bonn, multilingualism and cultural diversity are considered to be valuable resources that complement subject-specific qualifications. This is why, in addition to curricular language modules, students have access to a diverse range of language-learning offers, including the independent-study offers at the Center for Language Learning (Sprachlernzentrum, SLZ) in which they can autonomously learn a foreign language or enhance existing language skills. Furthermore, students can apply for the “Certificate of Intercultural Competence” free of charge, which promotes extra-curricular and interdisciplinary activities of international or intercultural nature.
