The program in Mathematics aims at training professional researchers in mathematical sciences and experts in mathematical education.
On successful completion of the program, students:
- will be prepared for Ph.D. qualifying tests in Algebra, Topology and Analysis,
- will have own research agenda and experience
- will have teaching experience at university level.
The M.Sc. program takes two full years of study. All M.Sc. students complete their Individual Plans of Study (IPS). The IPS includes some mandatory items. However, most courses are student chosen (students can choose from a certain number of special topics courses and a certain number of research seminars). A course project must be completed by the end of the first year. By the end of their course of study, students are required to submit a Masters thesis. A presentation of thesis results, in the form of a seminar, is required. Every M.Sc. student has a faculty advisor, who supervises the course project and the Masters thesis.
The department of Mathematics has a 3-year Ph.D. program that is free for everybody. Students who wish to enter this program are required to pass an entrance exam. International Ph.D. programs in Mathematics are also offered by the Institute of Information Transmission Problems and the Steklov Mathematical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences (both institutes in Moscow). They are focused on fundamental and applied research.
