Program Description

MSc Mathematics

Leiden University

The Master’s programme in Mathematics in Leiden focuses on analysis, probability and statistics, number theory and (arithmetic) geometry.

For any student who wants to specialise in one of these areas, Leiden is an excellent possibility. All researchers in the present group have intensive contacts with colleagues from outside Leiden, within the Netherlands, but also abroad.

Specialisations

  • Algebra, Geometry and Number Theory
  • Applied Mathematics
  • Mathematics and Education
  • Mathematics and Science Communication and Society
  • Mathematics and Science-Based Business

What Leiden can offer you

If you are considering pursuing a Master of Science in Mathematics, Leiden is a very good choice. You will be hosted in one of the leading research groups in mathematics in the Netherlands. Another strong point is our personal approach. Our programmes will be tailor-made according to your wishes, depending on your individual background and your personal aims. It will be our interest to offer you a significant deepening of your knowledge, and to broaden your enthusiasm for mathematics.

Students who have obtained a Master of Science degree in Mathematics possess a thorough theoretical basis, know how to work in a multinational environment, and are able to operate well on the international market. Courses are taught at a high level, and each of the master’s tracks ends with an individual research project combined with a master thesis.

The Leiden Mathematical Institute

The Leiden Mathematical Institute is a modern institute aiming at excellence both in research and in education. Many well-known Dutch mathematicians work and have worked here, such as, for example, analyst Thomas J. Stieltjes, who gave his name to the Stieltjes integral, and number theorist Hendrik D. Kloosterman, who was the inventor of the Kloosterman sum. The influence of both these mathematicians can still be felt today, with the Institute’s distinct dual focus on both analysis and number theory.

The Leiden Mathematical Institute is partner in the Lorentz Center, an international research centre for Astronomy, Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics and Bio Sciences. It takes part in the national mathematics courses offered by the mastermath programme. The Algebra, Geometry and Number Theory specialisation is part of the Erasmus Mundus ALGANT network, making for intensive (research and education) contacts with the universities of Paris-Sud/Orsay, Bordeaux, Padova and Milano. The institue participates in the national Gravitation Programme NETWORKS.
