Master of Science (MSc) in Mathematics

Mathematics is the science of structures in a broad sense. They may be numerical structures, spatial structures, colour structures, musical structures, logical structures or a thousand other things. Mathematicians study these structures: they form them, stretch them, bend them, play with them and form connections between them.

The programme is offered in English.

"There is more interaction between students and teachers in Denmark. Back home there is more emphasis on exams and good grades.

Mauricio, MSc student, Mathematics

When you start looking, you find structures everywhere. And mathematics is the language that we use to express many of our deepest thoughts about the world. Mathematical applications can be used as a way to get inside the structures. Or you can become engrossed in the abstract game. You're allowed - in fact, you're encouraged! - to use both approaches as a graduate student in mathematics.

If you are interested in the way Mathematics is shared and learned in various institutions, you can also study Didactics of Mathematics at the University of Copenhagen.
