Master of Science


In the master's degree program Mathematics students can acquire comprehensive scientific knowledge in a main field of mathematics. They can choose from the following areas: “Algebra, Number Theory and Logic,“ “Mathematical Analysis and Differential Equations,“ “Discrete Mathematics,“ “Geometry and Topology,“ “Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing” and “Probability Theory and Stochastic Analysis.“

In addition to introductory lecture modules, students of this degree program also have the possibility to directly attend advanced master’s level lectures in other mathematical ares. Mathematics topics are furthermore presented in special graduate seminars. Students can gather practical experience e.g. from practical tutoring, internships in the industrial sector, or programming projects. Those who are interested in the application of mathematics in other areas of science, can also choose modules from a minor.

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.)

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.
