Mathematics seeks to uncover universal mathematical structures underlying objects of investigation. The abstraction of concepts often performed in mathematical research attempts to extract the essential structure from individual objects of investigation, and whatever truths that are proven with this framework maintain their validity forever. MSc. in Mathematics lies in understanding how different types of math’s are categorized. Instead of focusing on a particular type of mathematics such as algebra or calculus, a postgraduate degree MSc. in Mathematics allows students to concentrate on number theory and advanced mathematical methods that tie together all the different forms of mathematics they have likely already learned. One can learn abstract concepts used in modern mathematics and develop the ability to grasp their underlying truths. It provides an opportunity to go beyond theoretical work in math and explore real-world applications, by understanding how math affects our lives. In addition to learning principles like statistical analysis, one can expect to expand their problem-solving and organizational skills that are important for future careers.
