Pure Mathematics

Fundamental and essential
To be optimally prepared for the master programme in Pure Mathematics, you can choose the minor Pure Mathematics. The tracks of this minor dive deeper into different areas of mathematics.

The minor consists of 30 EC of courses of which there is a compulsory part of 18 EC, see the list corresponding to your track below. The remaining 12 EC can be chosen from the list of (bachelor Mathematics) electives below. Note that the electives include second semester courses. If you want to complete your studies within the nominal period of three years, you are advised to choose first semester courses. Also the electives include a few courses of the second year of bachelor Mathematics. Those are allowed if you have not followed them in your second year.
