What is the Magisterium?
The Mathematics Magisterium University Diploma was created in 1985 at the instigation of Jean-Pierre Chevènement, then Minister of National Education, in order to set up courses of excellence in the universities.
The Mathematics Magisterium of Strasbourg is a reinforced curriculum that takes place over three years, which completes the program of the third year of the Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics (Advanced Mathematics and Physics - Magisterium) and then the two years of the Master’s Degree in Mathematics (Magisterium).
In addition to the national Bachelor's and Master's degrees, the training is sanctioned by a university diploma, delivered upon completion of the Master's degree.
Thanks to specific courses in fundamental and applied mathematics, students receive a very complete training that prepares them for careers in research, teaching, and business. In addition to the classical courses, the Magistère includes an introductory research thesis during the 3rd year of Bachelor's and an internship in the 1st year of Master's. Details of the program are available via the links below:
- The first year of the Magisterium corresponds to the 3rd year of the MPA-Magisterium course (the 3rd year of bachelor's corresponds to semesters 5 and 6 of the degree coursedescription of the course)
- The next two years correspond to the Master's degree in Mathematics (The 1st year of Master's corresponds to semesters 1 and 2 and 2nd year to semesters 3 and 4 of the Master's degree description of the course)
- The page dedicated to the Mathematics Magisterium only lists the specific additional courses (semesters 1 and 2 of the Mathematics Magisterium correspond to the 3rd Bachelor's, semesters 3 and 4 to 1st year of Master's and semesters 5 and 6 to 2nd year of Master's description of the course)
Information on first-year dissertations and second-year internships, as well as examples of topics covered.
Magistère students have access to the University of Strasbourg's international exchange programs, so they can spend one or two semesters of their curriculum in a partner university. This applies in particular to the last year of study (2nd of Master's), which can be validated in another university, whether French or foreign. Finally, for students wishing to focus on applied mathematics, it is possible to modify their studies to validate the Magisterium through the Master's degree in Scientific Computing and Mathematics Of Information (CSMI) or the Master's degree in Statistics.
