Master of Science in Mathematics - research profile

University of Southern Denmark

With a Master's degree in mathematics from the University of Southern Denmark, you will be well qualified for many exciting jobs in private or public organizations (industry, financial institutions, schools, universities, administration) or you may choose to pursue a research career.

In the master’s programme in Mathematics, you develop your knowledge of scientific theories and methods, your experience in working independently with scientific questions and your ability to express yourself clearly on academic issues. The master’s programme thus qualifies you to participate in scientific work and independently handle business functions with your background in these learned skills.

Mathematics and computer science research


Research in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at University of Southern Denmark covers three core areas:

  • Applied mathematics
  • Computer science
  • Mathematics

Within the field of Mathematics, it is especially the fields of operator algebra, banach spaces, topology, geometry, discrete maths and graph theory which are researched at the department.

Programme structure


The most common way to finish your degree in Mathematics is a master and thus the title of MSc.

The scientific aspect of the master’s programme is most evident in the final thesis project which takes 6 months. Work on this project takes place in close contact with a supervisor and often in connection with the supervisor’s own research. It should be made clear, however, that the master’s degree is not a research degree. To achieve a research degree, you must complete a PhD.

Language entry requirements


A good standard of English is required because teaching at the University involves student participation, class discussion, project work and student presentations.
