With sound knowledge of mathematics and good practice in programming and in handling computer aided mathematics tools, you are well prepared for deeper studies in applied mathematics. This study programme gives you all this! Besides courses in pure mathematics you study mathematical modeling, numerical methods, programming and statistics. You will use modern software in the math courses as well – it will give you a deeper understanding of the subject. In three courses you will learn the mathematical methods in economy, encryption and mechanics.

During the third and last year you choose between deeper studies in an application field of your interest or more advances courses in mathematics. The education is finished with a degree project of 15 credits.

The programme prepares for master studies in mathematics and adjacent fields.

The specialization Economics and Operations Research is cancelled autumn 2020.


Fields where mathematicians are in demand are for example information security, engineering problems in the manufacturing industry, actuarial mathematics, design of experiments and statistical studies. Deep knowledge of mathematics together with skills in programming makes you attractive in the labor market. It is easier to move from math towards the applications than vice versa. Continued studies after the BSc will improve your possibilities in the labor market.


Bachelor of Science. Main field of study: Mathematics.

Students from this programme will have vast opportunities in the future, since mathematics is a universal language

Roughly 15 minutes with a bike from the city centre, you will find Linnaeus University’s campus. It is like a small society with the university, student accommodation, and student life. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

What will you come across on an excursion in Växjö – the city of contrasts? You will find good restaurants, a celebrated hockey team, and cozy cafés where you can enjoy a latte with lingonberry flavour. In Växjö, beautiful nature is always just around the corner; the city is surrounded by lakes and forests. Students like the combination of the city centre and the active student life on campus. Your dream of the future starts here!
