Entrance Conditions  The grade obtained at the final examination of the graduated Bachelor degree program and a personal portfolio. See the exact admission conditions on www.cs.ubbcluj.ro, section Admitere * Entrence conditions could be subject of some changes 
Further Education Possibilities  The master’s programme purpose is to provide students with the appropriate tools for further doctoral studies and professional activity. 
Description of Study  The programme concentrates in the core areas of algebra, analysis, geometry and topology, but it also spills into some specialized themes of pure mathematics, in order to focus the students’ knowledge on certain modern themes and to continue their training in modern fields of Mathematics.
Core courses:

Purposes of the program  This programme emphasizes mathematics used in other sciences, in teaching and in new applications of pure mathematics (in computational mathematics, optimization etc) through seminars and case studies. The students will be prepared for either a Ph.D. degree or employment in industry or public service. 
Specialization / Area of Expertise  Specializations in various domains of pure mathematics:

Extra Peculiarities  Science: Categories, number theory, Morse theory, applied functional analysis, complex functions.
Teaching: Pedagogical theories in math education 
Practical Training  Research in mathematics, practice in education 
Final Examinations  A research thesis is defended in an oral examination. The student should demonstrate the ability to do independent analysis and research. 
Gained Abilities and Skills 

Job Placement, Potential Field of Professional Activity  Students who graduate this programme may activate in any institution or company of the economy and administration in positions requiring the ability to analyze, understand, approach and solve various practical problems whose solutions request a critical, creative and rigorous thinking. As well, the holder of this programme may activate, in the condition of graduating the pedagogical module, as a teacher of Mathematics in any state or private educational institution at all levels.
