Current information in relation with the Corona crisis

In connection with the containment of the corona spread, the university has taken various measures in accordance with the requirements of the state government. These are subject to regular adjustments. We endeavor to publish the current measures that relate to the area of ​​study and teaching.

  • Courses:
    • 1st year of study optionally as distance learning or with attendance components: The first year of study in the degree programmes B.Sc. Mathematics and B.Ed. Mathematics is possible in the winter semester 2021/22 either as a pure distance learning programme or with classroom attendance. All courses of the first year of study (Analysis 1+2, Linear Algebra 1+2) can be completed purely online; lectures and exercises are transmitted digitally. If, depending on the development of the pandemic, attendance of courses in presence in the lecture hall is permissible, we will make this possible as an additional offer. Detailed information on the individual courses can be found on the web pages of the respective courses in due course. We currently assume that we will be able to allow attendance in small groups at least for courses and are planning a corresponding offer.

    • The courses of the winter semester 2021 are planned partly as courses with face-to-face teaching and partly as online courses.  In the Alma course catalog, it is specified for each lecture whether and how it is offered. There is also a link to the website for the event.

    • With the help of the student council, the department initiated a special mentoring program for first-year students in the bachelor’s courses by students of higher semesters (from the fourth semester). More information and contact details can be found on the website of the student council for the mentoring program.

  • Exams:
    • The university has issued guidelines for the implementation of written and oral exams, which are regularly adapted to the changed situation. The university has now issued guidelines for the execution of exams and oral exams. More on these can be found on the website of the university on the corona crisis.

Further information can be found on the  web pages of the university concerning the corona crisis and on the web pages of the faculty on the corona crisis.

Courses & Programmes

The department offers purely scientific study programs as well as study programs leading to an educational degree. All study programs lead to Bachelor and Master degrees. In our study programs students get a solid foundation in the basic areas of mathematics and have the opportunity to choose from the wide range of specialisations offered at our department in teaching as well as in science:

Start of studies in the summer semester

Since the summer semester 2017, it is possible to start our study programmes Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Education in the summer semester. We offer all compulsory courses (Analysis 1, Linear Algebra 1) of the first semester in the summer semester and all compulsory courses (Analysis 2, Linear Algebra 2) of the second semester in the winter semester. From the third semester onwards, the courses are modularised in such a way that it is irrelevant whether the course was started in the winter or summer semester. When you start your studies in the summer semester, you can be sure that the studies can be carried out without delay. If you have any questions about starting your studies in the summer semester, please contact the Dean of Study Affairs or the Counceling office of the department of mathematics.
