Institution Logo Leiden University

The Algebra, Geometry and Number Theory master's specialisation spans both theory and the world of algorithms and applications. The courses are directly related to our research.

The Algebra, Geometry and Number Theory master's specialisation focuses on geometry and number theory, a very large area ranging from discrete dynamical systems and analytic number theory to arithmetic and algebraic geometry. There is a strong emphasis on algebraic methods and a direct interest in the computational aspects of the theory. The programme also has a cryptology component. Leiden offers courses at an advanced level ranging over topics such as algebraic number theory, algebraic geometry and cryptology.

The research specialisation is aimed at students who wish to acquire a profound knowledge of one of the areas within pure mathematics. There is a strong theme dealing with algebra and number theory as well as a strong theme dealing with topology and geometry. The master's specialisation Algebra, Geometry and Number Theory is an ideal basis for a career in academia, starting for example with one of our PhD programmes.
