Description of the program:

The Mathematics BSc line offers a full 3-year education in mathematics. The course provides a general bachelor-level education in mathematics, which can serve as a basis for further studies in mathematics or computer science. The basic courses include Logic, Computer science, Linear algebra, Number theory, Calculus, Geometry, Probability theory, and statistics and Game theory. Advanced courses include Mathematical programming and Operations research, Group theory, Computer algebra, Numerical methods, and applied computer science. The courses usually consist of two parts: a lecture and a problem-solving seminar, each worth 2 or 3 credits, depending on the nature of the topic. In addition to the 120 credits which have to be collected from the courses, 60 credits are awarded for the preparation of the thesis and this completes the 180 credits required for finishing the course. The bachelor's course in mathematics is the basis for the Master (MSc) line of applied mathematics (with a special focus on operations research) available at the University of Pécs as well as other MSc courses.
