What will I learn?
Mathematics is a science far more lively than formulas and dry theory would make us believe. To study mathematics means to argue and deal with structures, but also to experiment and try out new things. Mathematics is an essential part of all scientific, technological and economic subjects. Without mathematical language and approach it is frequently impossible to understand and accurately describe scientific findings and relationships. Mathematics is also an exciting science on its own with plenty to discover and explore. The BSc course in Mathematics imparts the fundamentals of mathematics, which are required to deal with mathematical structures and are used to describe phenomena in natural science and technology. It comprises pure mathematics (e.g., analysis and discrete mathematics) as well as applied mathematics (e.g., numerical control and statistics).

What makes Salzburg so special as a place to study?
The central idea of the BSc degree in Mathematics at the University of Salzburg is to guarantee a basic training according to international standards, and to further offer opportunities for students to specialize in a field oriented towards the current research emphasis of the department. The curriculum offers students a range of possibilities to pursue individual interests within the optional subjects. By completing additional qualifications, graduates can enhance their profile. A high student-to-staff ratio is a decisive component thereof. Last but not least, Salzburg as a university city offers a high standard of living in an exceptional environment.
