## Master in Mathematical Science

The program represents an extension of the first level of the mathematics program of the Bologna system. The program is designed in such a way that the student has a choice at the end of his education: continuing education in doctoral studies in mathematics, working in economics or the public sector. The content of the program also allows the candidate to use the acquired skills for development in other sciences. A student can choose from a large number of subjects from different relevant fields. Their understanding requires, of course, certain basic knowledge of basic mathematical subjects that students receive at the first stage of the study. Depending on motivation, ability, interest and ambitions or plans, the student gets the opportunity to engage in research activities. It is possible primarily with the help of a mentor during writing a master's thesis. The program also provides subjects from the field of applied mathematics, necessary for students focused on the financial sector and other sectors of the economy.

## Admission Criteria

**First year enrollment is open to**

1. Graduates of the first cycle study program who completed studies in Mathematics, or

2. Graduates from study areas other than Mathematics must complete additional academic requirements (equivalent to a minimum of 30 ECTS).

Individual applications of the candidates that didn’t study in fields, related to Mathematics, are reviewed by the FAMNIT Study Commission.

In accordance with Article 41 of the Higher Education Act, candidates are ranked in cases where the number of available places are limited. Candidates are ranked based on their undergraduate GPA.

A ranking list will be published and candidates will be notified.
