The Advanced Mathematics program gradually becomes more specialized. It is research-oriented and offers students the possibility to pursue a PhD thesis.

The program is based at two laboratories of mathematics of the Université de Lyon: the Institute Camille Jordan (Université Lyon 1, INSA Lyon, École Centrale de Lyon, Université de Saint-Etienne), and the Unité de Mathématiques Pures et Appliquées (École Normale Supérieure de Lyon).

An advanced program in mathematics

  • 1st year: one semester of advanced courses then specialization during the second semester.
    A 2-month training program during which the student explores some current research topics. 
  • 2nd year: choice between 3 courses in key areas of mathematics (Algebra, Arithmetic, Logics, Geometry, Topology, Analysis, PDEs, Scientific computations, Probabilities, Statistics).
    A 4-month training program in a basic or applied research laboratory.
    Depending on the scientific project of the student, the Master’s 2 may be carried out in a different university center. 

Part of the program taught in French / English

This program is taught in French or English, according to the students' needs.
