Students who currently hold a degree in mathematics and have recorded exceptional achievements in their coursework (either at Hebrew University or another recognized university in Israel or abroad) can submit their candidacies for advanced Masters degree studies in mathematics.
Consideration will only be given to those candidates who achieved an average in pursuit of their degrees and in the required coursework of at least an 85 (the relevant courses are listed below.)
In some circumstances, faculty members will consider admitting students with an average below 85 yet over 80. Students who hold degrees in other disciplines will be considered for acceptance, and the terms of acceptance will be assessed on a case by case basis.
For a student to be directly accepted for the Masters program (without need for additional coursework), the candidate’s prior coursework must include completion of the following courses:
- Advanced Calculus 1- (80315) or Infi 3 (80415)
- Advanced Calculus 2- (80316) or the pair courses Analysis on mnifolds (80426) + Functional analysis (80427)
- Algebraic Structures 1- (80445)
- Set Theory – (80200)
- Probability Theory- (80420)
- Introduction to Logic – (80423)
- Algebraic Structures 2- (80446)
- Introduction to Topology – (80516)
- Differential Equations- (80320)
- Measurement Theory- (80517)
- Complex Functions – (80519)
With approval from a senior faculty member or head of the Masters track, in certain cases other relevant coursework may be accepted in place of those listed above. Students who have completed a comprehensive physics degree may be accepted if they have completed the following courses:
- Applied Mathematics 2 – (80157) can be in place of Differential Equations –(80320)
- Applied Complex Functions (80314) can be in place of Complex Functions (80519)
- Applied Probability (80312) can be in place of Probability Theory 1 (80420)
Consideration will also be given to students who have not completed some of the courses above. If the candidate is accepted, he or she will typically be required to complete the missing coursework during the first year of study in addition to the required coursework towards the Masters degree.
In specific cases, students who demonstrate a particularly high level of academic proficiency may be eligible for exceptions to the guidelines above.
