There is a long tradition of mathematics at Linnaeus University. You can study for a bachelor or a master degree and we also carry out research in mathematics that is of a high international level.

Mathematics is one of the oldest sciences. It is also an important basis for a number of other subject fields. Perhaps in particular for physics, chemistry and astronomy, but also for subject fields like statistics, business and economics, and technology.

As opposed to the natural sciences, mathematics is abstract. It is not tied to concrete and specific observations and problems, but can be applied generally. This makes it a tool for both formulating and solving problems within a number of different fields. Therefore, courses in analysis and algebra form the basis for all education within the natural sciences and engineering all over the world, and are an important part of the basis also when studying business and economics.

At Linnaeus University you can study mathematics and didactics of mathematics as well as mathematical statistics. You can deepen your knowledge and study for a master degree in mathematics or applied mathematics. All in all, we are about 50 people who work within the field of mathematics, primarily in Växjö.



Our research in mathematics is of a high international level and has both theoretical and practical focus. We offer third-cycle education in mathematics, didactics of mathematics and applied mathematics.
