Uni Hamburg

Master in Mathematics

Our Master’s degree programme in Mathematics covers all areas of pure and applied mathematics represented at the Department of Mathematics at Hamburg University.

Enrolment is possible twice a year, for the start of either the winter or the summer term. If you intend to enter the programme for October this year, please submit your application between June 1 and July 15. Further details on how to apply can be found here.

The programme takes two years. You will begin by attending lecture courses and seminars at increasingly advanced levels, and finish with a piece of genuine mathematical research, your Master’s thesis. In choosing your topics from our wide range of courses you will be very flexible, but we shall advise you on how to focus your studies in a way that best suits your interests and abilities. You will be integrated into the research activities at the department as early as possible. Having received a Master’s degree, you may apply for admission to PhD studies. The scientific environment for PhD studies in Mathematics benefits from the research training group Research Training Group 1670 - Mathematics inspired by String theory and Quantum field theory and other activities.
