The Mathematics Department in the School of Sciences at the University of Aegean offers a Master’s degree in “Mathematical Studies” with specialization in Pure or Applied Mathematics.

Objectives

The program aims at advanced candidates whose primary interest is in Pure or Applied Mathematics with a broad range of applications to other disciplines such as Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Economics. It is an intensive and demanding course where the candidates are advised to be of a high level of self-motivation and capacity of hardworking independent study. In formulating the Master’s degree training program, the faculty has been guided by several principles.

First, the program should aid each student in the development of an individualized training program based on the student's background and interests.

Second, in-depth knowledge and research experience should form the core of each student's training and open the way to a PhD degree.

Third, students should be able to complete the program within one and a half years (there is the possibility for an extension).

Fourth, students should be evaluated in terms of those competencies that are important to teachers and research scientists.
