Degree programme in a nutshell
The aim of the Mathematics Bachelor's degree programme is to prepare you to think autonomously, logically and critically, to abstract and mathematise real problems, solve the problems using mathematical methods and computer technology, and to interpret the results correctly.
The study comprises the combination of pure mathematics based on mathematical theories and applied mathematics that is useful in many areas of life. You will look into trends in mathematical research, get to the heart of calculus, algebra, statistics, and number theory, and you can continue by doing research in these areas during your MSc, or PhD.
While studying mathematics, you will develop your skills in logical thinking and creativity and get an insight into techniques that will enable you to understand, analyze and solve specific challenges. The internal elegance and beauty of mathematics will hardly cease to fascinate you. The logical and analytical skills developed through a degree in mathematics are highly valued by employers.
What do we expect from you?
Successful high school studies.
We recommend that you have reached the B1/B2 English language level (IELTS 5.5 and higher, TOEFL 42 and higher) so that you are not limited in lectures and seminars.
If your English skills are insufficient, you may not complete the study successfully.
What will you learn?
Optional courses will make it possible for you to further develop your love for other mathematical disciplines, undertake studies at a partner university or complete practical internship or professional company traineeship.
Standard period of study is 3 years. The academic year is divided into the autumn semester (September-December) and the spring semester (February-May). Each term is terminated with the exam period (including the resit exams). You will be examined orally and/or in a written form.
How will the degree equip you for the job market?
Our graduates go on to work in careers in industry, government and education, as well as in business, law, accountancy, banking and computing. They usually work as data processing specialists, risk analysts, market research analysts or statisticians.
Our PhD programmes further prepare students for research careers.
Mathematics is a very flexible subject: studying mathematics doesn't necessarily mean that you have to become a mathematician, but it will provide you with valuable attributes that you can make use of in other employment. Graduates in mathematics are particularly adaptable when changing jobs and can be most useful in many different branches of science and technology.
Our graduates have gone on to work for organisations including U&Sluno, Science and Technology Center Ostrava, Česká pojišťovna, Innogy, Tieto, OSIsoft.
