Master's Programme in Mathematical Sciences

University of Gothenburg, Faculty of Science
Campus Part time 2 years September 2017 Sweden Gothenburg

The programme has the following specializations: Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Financial Mathematics, and Mathematical Statistics. [+]

Part time Masters in Business Studies in Gothenburg in Sweden. The use of mathematical and statistical models and methods have facilitated tremendous advances in knowledge during the last few centuries. Still, it may be today that the growth in ways of applying mathematical sciences is at its greatest, as ever-increasing data-collection and computing possibilities make new application ideas feasible. Examples of this include finding disease-related genes, cryptography for the internet, and risk computations for new financial instruments. At the same time, the strong tradition of pure research in mathematics is continuing, where the research goal is simply to follow the human need to explore, and to understand the logical consequences of axioms. The interplay between these two sides of our field make this a very exciting time to study mathematics. The Department of Mathematical Sciences has strong traditions in both pure and applied research. The fact that we are a joint department, part of both Chalmers Technical University and University of Gothenburg, gives us a size and contact surface that make many cooperations and specializations possible. We have research groups in algebraic geometry and number theory, biomathematics, complex analysis, computational mathematics, discrete mathematics, harmonic analysis and partial differential equations, kinetic theory, optimization, probability theory, wavelets, bioinformatics and statistical genetics, biostatistics, spatio-temporal stochastic models with environmental and marine applications, population dynamics, particle systems and statistical physics, extreme value theory, telecommunications, material fatigue and reability, environmental statistics, spatial statistics and image analysis, markov theory and algorithmic applications, and mathematical finance. As well as qualifying for graduate studies in mathematics and mathematical statistics, the Master's Programme can provide you with a background desirable to many employers, such as medical, industrial, consulting, insurance, or financial businesses, or public employers. The programme has the following specializations: Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Financial Mathematics, and Mathematical Statistics. A number of advanced courses are available for each specialization. It is possible to complement your background with courses on a more basic level, or to follow research-level courses. The specialization towards financial mathematics is a cooperation with the school of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg. The programme contains a masters thesis project of 30 higher educational credits, which may be done in cooperation with an external institution. [-]

Master Programme in International Administration and Global Governance, 120 hp

Master Programme of International Administration and Global Governance prepares students for professional careers in, as well as post-graduate research related to, the field of international affairs.

The programmes aim is to provide the skills and knowledge needed to formulate, analyze and evaluate policy related to long-term political, economic and social development.

Through interdisciplinary coursework, independent research projects and an internship, students gain both theoretical insights as well as the practical skills and knowledge to work in organisations involved in international issues. Coursework in the first semester explores the historical development of the international system, with focus on the relations among international organisations and between international organisations and various state and non-state actors. Students will also explore the primary policy theories in areas such as peace and conflict studies, and economic, social and political development. Why have some policy ideas been embraced and others not? What ramifications have theories of development policy had, and for whom? Understanding how schools of thought develop, gain footing in the international arena and are, or fail to be, implemented at the international, national or local levels sheds light on the factors that enable or limit efforts to effect change in the world. Through analyses of specific cases in international economic, political and social development, the courses will develop students ability to forecast the effects of different policy approaches, and provide the skills needed to develop policy proposals and strategies for advocacy and implementation of those policies....
