Master of Science Mathematics

Up to and including the summer semester 2020, it was possible to enrol in the German-language master’s degree programme Mathematik (examination regulations 2013 and, prior to that, examination regulations 2010). The English-language master’s degree programme Mathematics (examination regulations 2020) started in the winter semester 2020/21 at the University of Münster. On this page, you will find detailed information on the course of studies, the courses offered, the selection of minor subjects and the respective examination regulations.

Courses offered

The courses offered by the different focuses/specialisations for the current and the coming semester can be found on the following pages of the corresponding specialisation areas. Starting in the winter semester 2020/21, the majority of the specialisation lectures will be held in English. However, considering that a limited number of courses is available, a degree in German is still possible. If you are reliant on German courses, please consult the academic programme advisory service as early as possible.

From the winter term 2020/21 onwards, specialisation courses offered can be found here:

You can find a list of broadening courses and courses of specialisation modules of the current semester here.

Structure of the degree programme

The structure of the degree course and the possibilities of combining modules differ in some points between the three examination regulations of 2020, 2013 and 2010. Information on the study structure of the MSc Mathematics can be found here. Information on the study structure of the expiring German MSc Mathematik (examination regulations 2013 and 2010) can be found on the German version of this web page.

Minor Subjects

The Master of Science Mathematik and the Master of Science Mathematics can both be studied with or without a minor subject. These minor subjects can be selected: Computer Science, Logic, Biology, Chemistry and Physics as well as Business Administration, Economics, Philosophy and Psychology (the last four each with a limited number of study places).
