Master of Science in Mathematics

Lectures and Seminars

The Essen Seminar for Algebraic Geometry and Arithmetic is one of Germany’s top research groups in this area regarding quantity as well as quality. The renowned Institute for Experimental Mathematics completes its thematic range through additional subject areas of algebra and experimental and algorithmic methods. Therefore we are able to provide a Master degree program covering numerous aspects of all these fields.

Here is a list of COURSES.

Language of instruction

All courses are held in English unless German is favored by all participants and the lecturer.
Courses are generally held in English.

International Learning Environment

The Essen seminar has joined the ALGANT consortium. The consortium offers a two-year world-class integrated master course and a joint doctorate program in pure mathematics, with a strong emphasis on Algebra, Geometry and Number Theory. Both programs have received the Erasmus Mundus label.
