Two specializations are offered in algebra: Algebraic Structures and Applied Algebra. The courses MA3201 Rings and Modules and MA3202 Galois Theory are required for both specializations.
For the specialization Algebraic Structures, MA3203 Ring Theory and at least one more course in algebra are required. MA3204 Homological Algebra is recommended.
For the specialization Applied Algebra, the courses TMA4185 Coding Theory and TMA4160 Cryptography are required. For this specialization, it is an advantage to have a background in informatics.
