Can you predict an economic crisis? How many prime numbers are there in a certain interval? How do we calculate the limit of an infinite series of function values?
Mathematicians love difficult questions and models underpinned by theoretical foundations. Over the centuries, mathematics has made an important contribution to technological progress, and it is still a crucial part of research on important issues such as the climate crisis.Obviously, parts of the degree programme in Mathematics are similar to the mathematics that you studied at secondary school. However, you will also discover new areas such as algebra (number theory and coding), dynamical systems (how predictable is the weather?) and systems theory.Some people choose to study Mathematics because its diversity appeals to them. Others recognize the social relevance of mathematics and choose to do research. Other students enjoy Mathematics simply because it involves solving abstract problems.The University of Groningen offers degree programmes in both Mathematics and Applied Mathematics. The first year is largely the same for both Bachelor’s programmes, during which you explore the programmes and gradually work towards your specialization. It is still possible to switch programmes in the second year.

Within the degree programme in Mathematics, you can choose between two specializations:- General Mathematics
- Probabi
