Mathematics Degree

Mathematics is a discipline which studies quantity, structure and space. It combines a wide range of applied and theoretical subdisciplines. Mathematics is one of the oldest study disciplines, its development began back in ancient Greece, where it was studied along with philosophy.

Mathematics specializations

The list of main specializations in Mathematics include:

  • Algebra - the Mathematics subdiscipline which studies numbers and  arithmetical operations.
  • Geometry - studies shapes, sizes and positions of figures.
  • Applied Mathematics: includes a variety of disciplines: mechanics, statistics, computational sciences, mathematical programming. See more information about Applied Mathematics and relevant study programs here.
  • Combinatorics - studies mathematical structures which are discrete.
  • Mathematical Analysis -  studies limits.

Program structure

An undergraduate study program in Maths usually lasts from three to four years, the material is taught in the form of lectures and seminars. Study programs with major in Applied Mathematics often include an internship in various institutions. A study program in Mathematics can be completed with final examination or practical dissertation - it depends on the chosen university and program.

A degree in Mathematics sometimes can be joint with other (usually more applied) subjects, for example, computer science, economics, business management,  physics, statistics or with other subjects related or not related to Mathematics.

Usually the undergraduate degree in Mathematics are called BA (Bachelor of Arts), BSc (Bachelor of Science) or sometimes BMath (Bachelor of Mathematics).

Entry requirements

Those who wish to apply for an undergraduate study program in Mathematics need to demonstrate high GPA scores from high school, especially in Maths and sometimes Physics and other Natural Sciences. Some universities also require applicants to pass one of the international Mathematical tests -  Sixth Term Examination Papers or  Advanced Extension Award. Several universities also provide a pre-undergraduate course who those who wish to prepare for undergraduate program in Mathematics.

Since almost all programs you can find on our website are taught in English, universities always require language proficiency. All universities accept TOEFL, IELTS or other equivalent language certificates, or provide their own examination. Applicants who had completed a degree in English earlier usually are not required to pass language exams.

Best Universities

According to QS Top Universities Ranking by Subject 2016-2017, the world's best university hosting Mathematics study programs is Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), USA. All necessary information about this university, including entry requirements, can be found in the profile of MIT on our website. 

The list of world leading universities specializing on Mathematics study programs also include Harvard University, Stanford University, University of Oxford and many other institutions. Most institutions specializing on Mathematics are located in the USA or UK.
