Mathematics (B.A.) (two subjects)

Subject: Mathematics
Degree: Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)
Standard duration of study: 6 semesters
Start: Winter semester

Admission to the winter semester 2018/19:

  • 1st subject semester: open admission (enrolment without previous application)
  • 2nd to 6th subject semester: open admission (enrolment without previous application)
  • International applicants (non-EU): open admission (application to International Student Services)



The degree programme
The dual-subject Bachelor's degree programme in Mathematics can be combined with the subjects listed hereunder in the "studium generale" profile:


A total of 180 credits (abbreviated: C) must be acquired over 6 semesters in this degree programme, which means about 30 C per semester. These consist of the following:

  • 66 C for each subject chosen
  • 36 C for the area of specialisation
  • 12 C for the Bachelor's thesis in one of the subjects


In Mathematics the following studies must be completed as parts of the 66 C:

  • Analysis I and Analytical Geometry and Linear Algebra I
  • Analysis II or Methods of Analysis II
  • Analytical Geometry and Linear Algebra II or Geometry
  • Advanced Methods of Analysis or Mathematical Principles, Algebra, Theory of Numbers
  • School-related Applied Mathematics and School-related Principles of Stochastic
  • Mathematical Application Systems
  • Introduction to Teaching Methodology for Mathematics for the "studium generale" profile, or Introduction to Teaching Methodology for Mathematics for the teaching profession profile.

  • Students also have the option to earn their 36 C of the specialisation area in Mathematics.

    In a number of subjects, completion of the dual-subject Bachelor's degree basically qualifies students for subsequent transition to the corresponding Master's degree programme.
    This is not the case in Mathematics. Here, the degree programme can be planned so that a subsequent transition to the Masters' degree programme in Mathematics (M.Sc.) is possible, but not every individually selected combination of modules in the dual-subject Bachelor's degree programme enables students to do so. Therefore it is advisable to plan the courses to be attended at an early stage with the help of the Student Advisory Service.
