Mathematics in English at Eötvös University: tradition, research and education

**Name of program:** MSc in Mathematics

**Mode of study:** this program is available full-time

**Optimal duration of study:** 2 years (4 semesters)

## Introduction

The MSc in Mathematics at the Institute of Mathematics at Loránd

Eötvös University is a two years international program, where

the students can choose from 3 specializations:

Pure Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, and Mathematics Education.

To be a student at ELTE is a full-time job program assessed by written

examinations, coursework, projects, a talk, and a dissertation.

This MSc equips the student with a sound knowledge of advanced

mathematics suitable for progression to a research degree or as

a foundation for a career user of mathematics. Students have

full access to Departmental computing facilities, the Library

and Mathematics Reading Room. Each student has a tutor to guide

him or her through the program. The MSc in Mathematics has been

designed for students who want to continue their mathematics

studies by delving more deeply into particular aspects of pure

and applied mathematics. The courses may well be of interest to

mathematically inclined scientists and engineers as well as to

mathematicians.

## Prerequisites

**From European Union:** BSc in Mathematics (or in a closely related field)

obtained from any higher education institution standing in with

the Bologna Declaration.

**From the rest of the World:** BSc in Mathematics (or in a closely

related field).

## Specializations

MSc in Pure Mathematics. This specialized degree focuses on algebra, number theory, analysis (real, complex, functional, numerical, differential equations), geometry (differential, discrete), discrete mathematics (combinatorics, graph theory, algorithms), operations research, probability theory and statistics etc. On the given link you can find a summary of the courses, credit values, prerequisites and a tentative scheduling of the courses.

Please, note that the teaching language of these courses is Hungarian. However, on request (almost) any of them will be offered (also) in English.
