Bachelor's degree, 3-year

Mathematical Sciences

Structure of the programme

To earn a Bachelor's degree in mathematical subjects, you need the following:

  • Introductory courses: 22.5 credits
  • Compulsory subject and projects within a fixed time frame: 60 credits
  • Other courses: 97.5 credits ­ of which preferably at least 30 credits are taken from outside the faculty

The introductory courses are divided into three, each worth 7.5 credits. All students take Introductory Course 1 (the former Ex.phil. module 1). Introductory Course 2 must be chosen from a list representing a study culture different from the student's main sub-discipline. Introductory Course 3 is MA1101, Basic Course in Analysis I.

In addition to these introductory courses, the compulsory courses that are common to all three fields of study are:

  • MA1201 Linear Algebra and Geometry
  • MA1102 Basic Calculus II
  • MA1103 Vector Calculus
  • MA1202 Linear Algebra with Applications
  • ST1101 Probability
  • ST1201 Statistical Methods
  • and an elective IT course.

The courses can be taken as shown in the table below. But note that you can take the Ex. phil. and the perspective course at whatever stage in the programme you choose:

1 Høst MA1101 Basic Calculus I (Ex. fac.) MA1201 Linear Algebra and Geometry Ex. phil. Perspective course

To achieve breadth, you are recommended to take at least 30 credits in courses outside the faculty.

Students who would like to study abroad for a period are advised to do this after the Bachelor's degree.

The information given on this page applies only to students starting their studies fall 2015.

There might be changes in the study programme from the 2. year of study and onwards.
