A degree in Mathematics can be achieved at three different levels:
- Bachelor's degree (BSc.)
- Master's degree (MSc.)
- Doctorate (PhD)
On this site, you can read more about the overall structure of the bachelor programme in Mathematics.
The first year which we call the Science-year is about being adventurous. It's a time for your curiosity to awaken and flourish. That is why you get thrown straight into the action and theories are taught in the order in which you will need them. That way they become relevant and alive – not just squiggles on a piece of paper.
During the Science-year, we appreciate transparency, which is why the year is divided into four quarters. Throughout the year, you will get to learn a variety of scientific disciplines, all of which are related to the programme you have chosen. All courses last one or two quarters. Thus you will never follow more than three courses per quarter. This gives you ample opportunity to witness the interconnection of the courses. The Science-year ends with a large assignment where you will get to try your hand at a research project.
You will finish with a bachelor project, where a specific scientific problem will be analysed through research of both an experimental and theoretical context.
The bachelor programme in Mathematics must be combined with an elective subject within or outside the scientific field. At the end of the Science-year, you will choose which subject you wish to combine your major with.
After receiving a Bachelor's degree, you can choose to continue with the master programme in Mathematics at University of Southern Denmark.
After receiving a Master's degree, you can choose to continue with the PhD programme. As a PhD student, you contribute to the discovery of new research results and you will be on the cutting edge of international research. At the same time, you will achieve teaching and mediation credentials.
