Objective of the Master’s Program

The primary objective of the MMA is to provide specialization for holders of bachelor’s degrees in mathematics as well as holders of HEI degrees in similar fields who wish to continue their studies in Mathematics and deepen their knowledge of theoretical and applied mathematics in addition to issues of mathematical education.


The program awards Master’s Diplomas with the following titles: “Master in Mathematics, Specialization in Pure Mathematics”, “Master in Mathematics, Specialization in Applied Mathematics”, and “Master in Mathematics, Specialization in Mathematics Education”, determined by the selected Modules.

In particular:

Specialization A: Pure Mathematics (selection of MMA83 or MMA85)

Specialization B: Applied Mathematics (selection of MMA82 or MMA84)

Specialization C: Mathematics Education (selection of MMA81)


Upon successful completion of the program, students will be able to:

  • Obtained in-depth understanding of the primary concepts, fundamental theorems, and advanced methods of Real Analysis, Linear Algebra, and the main concepts of Stochastic Mathematics.
  • Learned to construct simple mathematical models of phenomena from the fields of science, medicine, and technology
  • Studied and solved mathematical problems arising from standardization, utilizing differential equation and/or integral equation analytical or numerical methods.
  • Become familiar with scientific software, such as the Mathematica software package, and its use in the numerical study and solution of mathematical problems.
  • Learned how to use the Mathematica software package, in addition to other software packages, to teach mathematics at various educational levels.

Furthermore, depending on their choice of Modules, which will have determined their specialization, students will:

By electing to specialize in Theoretical Mathematics:

  • obtain in-depth knowledge of the concepts and theorems of advanced mathematical theories in the fields of Algebra and Geometry.

By electing to specialize in Applied Mathematics:

  • Learn to organize and apply the knowledge they have obtained to solve mathematical problems that arise from the standardization of complex physical phenomena.

By electing to specialize in Mathematics Education:

  • deepen their understanding of mathematical concepts, structures, and disciplines, and utilize the knowledge they have gained in contemporary teaching situations.

Additionally, students who successfully complete the MMA will have developed the following general skills:

  • In-depth understanding and ability to use complex mathematical concepts and arguments
  • Advanced mathematical and physical intuition
  • Ability to effectively communicate issues relating to mathematical ideas and arguments.
  • Ability to effectively express assertions through scientific language on individual mathematical issues.
  • Ability to present their work to a scholarly audience.
  • Ability to study independently
  • Ability to compose a master’s diploma thesis in their preferred area of specialization.

ECTS Programme of Studies Credits: 120

Minimum Study Period: 2 Academic terms

Classification according to the Unesco ISCED-2011 code

– according to field of education: 46 Mathematics and Statistics
– according to education level: 7

Classification according to Unesco code ISCED-2013

– according to field of education: 0541 Mathematics

The Post-graduate programme accepts graduates or higher institution diplomas of related disciplines. The programme is offered in Greek. 

The knowledge of a foreign language and good computer-Internet skills would be useful for the successful participation in the programme.


Holders of a degree or diploma of higher education means graduates of Greek Universities or Polytechnics or Higher School of Fine Arts or Higher School of Pedagogical and Technological Education or Higher Technological Educational Institutions (ATEI) or those who hold academically equivalent first cycle degrees from recognized foreign educational institutions with the degrees awarded by the Greek Higher Educational Institutions, in accordance with the provisions of article 304 of Law No. 4957/2022 (Government Gazette 141/21.07.2022, vol.)


For the evaluation of the application to the Postgraduate Studies Programme, it will be examined whether the candidate’s institution of study is or may be included in the National Register of Recognised Higher Education Institutions of Foreign Countries and whether the candidate’s degree is or may be included in the National Register of Types of Degrees of Recognised Institutions of Foreign Countries.

The Hellenic Open University, if the degree is included in the list of article 307 of Law No. 4957/2022, must request a “Certificate of Place of Study”, which is issued and sent by the foreign university. If the place of study or part of the studies is confirmed as the Greek territory, the degree is not recognized, unless the part of the studies that took place in the Greek territory is in a public higher education institution or in a recognized foreign educational institution within the meaning of paragraph b) of article 299 of Law No. 4957/2022.

Specialization C: Mathematics Education (selection of MSM81)


Module Selection Instructions

In order to earn the master’s diploma in mathematics in two terms, students are required to select the Modules MSM70 and MSM71 in their first term. In their second term students are required to select MSM80, and must also select their preferred Modules, while also preparing and presenting their Master’s Diploma Thesis (MDT).

In all other cases, students must first select MSM70 and then the other Modules available in the curriculum. When selecting Modules, students must first pass all the available Modules that belong to the previous term and then select Modules belonging to the next term. Additionally, students who wish to select MSM82 must first successfully complete MSM71.

For example, a possible course of studies could be:

1st term: MSM70

2nd term: MSM71, MSM80

3rd term: Elective Modules (MSM81 or MSM82 or MSM85), MDT.

Students shall present their Master’s Diploma Thesis orally upon successful completion of all the Modules in the curriculum.

To earn the Diploma, students must complete four Modules and their Master’s Diploma Thesis.

It must be noted that the two first-term modules, MSM70 and MSM71, both entail a considerable workload, a fact reflected in their academic credits (ECTS), compared to those of the other available Modules. Thus, it is recommended that only students who plan to earn the MSM in two years and possess the available time participate concurrently in both Modules.
