Why Mathematics?

To learn how to formulate and analyze problems logically and quantitatively
Because a degree in mathematics opens up so many job prospects

Because mathematics has applications in the study of many aspects of the real world

Because it is an ever-evolving science, developed by a large international community with many young people

Because ... it is beautiful!

What will you study

The overall objective of the degree program is to ensure that the student has an adequate mastery of general scientific methods and content in the field of mathematics and its applications, as well as the acquisition of specific professional knowledge.

The first two years are common for all students and include compulsory core subjects in algebra, geometry, analysis, computer science, physics, statistics, mathematical physics, and numerical computation.

The third year includes exams in Probability and General Physics 2, which are compulsory for all. In addition, the student chooses between two curricula that determine the other teachings:

  • the General Mathematics (MatGen)curriculum, aimed at students interested in a continuation of studies with a consequent outlet towards research, includes 3 address exams to be chosen from 5 teachings in the areas of logic, geometry and analysis;
  • the Applied Mathematics (MatApp)curriculum, aimed at students who want to acquire more skills in the computational and modeling-mathematical fields, provides Institutions of Higher Analysis 1 and 2 more address exams to be chosen from 4 teachings in the areas of numerical computation, operations research, statistics and analysis.

The student completes his plan with 2 free-choice exams (or other activities) and the final exam.
For students interested in the professions of secondary teaching or science popularization, specific choices are recommended for both curricula, which can be used in the continuation of studies in the teaching curriculum of the Master's Degree.

After graduation

The degree program trains the mind to be flexible, teaches abstract reasoning and its applications to concrete problems, resulting in opening up many job prospects.

Develops the ability to approach problems logically and correctly, and skills are acquired in the use of numerical, statistical and computer tools.

Mathematics graduates are in demand by research institutions, demographic institutes, banks and financial or insurance companies, software houses, in business and public administration.

They can also carry out teaching and research activities.

Some data

According to data taken from the latest National AlmaLaurea surveys of three-year mathematics graduates from 2011 to 2015, one year after graduation:

  • 40% are working
  • 50% are not working but are engaged in training
  • 10% are looking for work
  • with percentages ranging from 78% to 100% are enrolled in a master's degree program in mathematics.


The Graduate in Mathematics


Who is it?


The bachelor's degree program in mathematics provides a basic science education.

Faced with a continuous evolution and renewal of technology, it is deemed appropriate to give priority to an education that makes graduates capable of acquiring additional and new knowledge and skills.

What does it do?

Almost all graduates continue their studies in the master's degree in mathematics.

Three-year graduates also find employment where flexible thinking and computational and computer skills are needed.

They can work as technical experts in applications and statistical technicians.

Where do they work?

Graduates can perform modeling-mathematical and computational support activities:

  • in companies and industry;
  • .
  • in laboratories and research centers;
  • in the field of dissemination of scientific culture;
  • in services;
  • in public administration.
