MSc in Mathematics

The Master of Science in Mathematics was launched in the department of Mathematics in 1974. The programme runs for a period of two years on a full-time basis, the first year being the coursework year and the second year is for dissertation. The programme was last reviewed in 2016.  The main aim for the review of programme was to provide a strong mathematical base for the PhD in mathematics programme by coursework and dissertation (started in the academic year 2016/2017). The second aim is to make the MSc programme’s curriculum more internationally and regionally comparable and competitive.

The Department of Mathematics of UDSM at the moment has 23 academic staff members with PhD degrees. These staff members will be involved in the running of this programme. The Department of Mathematics also has enough space, good library facilities, and computing facilitates to support this programme effectively.
