Program Description

The purpose of this master's degree is the acquisition by the student of an advanced training in mathematics mainly oriented towards initiation in research tasks, while ensuring that the contents of a significant part of their subjects are useful for those graduates who want to channel their professional career into the field of education, business or banking.

The master is the formative period of the Doctorate in Mathematics of the Universidad de Murcia . For this, five specialties have been offered (Algebra, Analysis, Geometry, Operational Research and Probability and Statistics), which will guarantee the graduate an optimal preparation in the area where he wants to work in the future, although students are given the possibility of designing "à la carte" your own profile as there are no restrictions on the choice of electives.

Students are offered the opportunity to combine the MMA with the Master's in Teacher Training (Mathematics specialty), so that both degrees can be obtained after completing 36 credits from the first and 52 from the second.

Students who justifiably cannot attend all classes of a subject may take it in blended mode. In this case, the only compulsory attendance will be in the evaluation activities that are designated by the teachers in the subject guide. The teachers will provide the student with the material they consider pertinent to prepare the subject (notes, problem sheets, list of bibliography, indications, etc.)

Tuition aids are offered, the amount of which varies from course to course according to the resources available to the program.

Justification

The Master in Advanced Mathematics (MMA) allows completing the academic training of graduates in Mathematics or Statistics, for their access to research jobs or doctoral programs in mathematics with a view to accessing a university teaching and research career and in other centers . The teaching staff is made up of internationally renowned researchers in the five specialties of the program. The national and international relations of our teaching staff with other researchers allow the students of our master and our doctorate the access to positions of visiting professors (stays) and work in universities and research centers.hands, old, old age sabinevanerp / Pixabay

Competencies

Basic skills

Admission profile

In addition to satisfying the Access Requirements, to be admitted to the Master in Advanced Mathematics it will be required to prove sufficient mathematical knowledge to be able to take the master with success, which will be decided by the Academic Commission of the Master (CAM) evaluating the following aspects: adaptation to the entry profile of the applicant's academic curriculum; merits of special relevance or significance in relation to the Master; other criteria that, in the opinion of the Academic Commission of the Master, allow verifying the suitability of the applicant to pursue the studies he is requesting; such as:

  • Academic Curriculum.
  • Result of an interview of the candidate with the CAM.
  • Reports of professors of the master designated by the CAM as possible tutors.
  • Adequacy of all the information above to the specialty of the study program that the student wishes to study.
  • Other merits of special relevance.

In the event of a greater number of applications than of places offered, the selection of those admitted will take place based on their academic record (70%), their Curriculum Vitae adjusted to their own income profile (20%) and the result of the Previous interview carried out by the Academic Committee of the Master and the reports of professors of the master (10%).

Graduation profile
