Specialization Course in Mathematics (Lato sensu)



The Specialization Course in Mathematics at Unicamp (see regulation here) was conceived due to Capes' initiative in creating the Program of Specialization in Mathematics, but which was abandoned soon after its creation. Our program did, however, continue to offer such a course guided by the following philosophy:

  •  Increase the target audience for Master's Degrees without affecting the academic quality and;
  •  Offer to teachers of mathematics the opportunity to correct eventual basic deficiencies existing in their mathematical background and improve their knowledge.


Vacancies and Target Audience

  • The course is intended to candidates with an undergraduate degree in Mathematics or related fields (Physics, Engineering, Economy, Computer Sciences, etc).
  • The number of vacancies is 20.


Admission and Application


**The accepted student will initially attend the courses as a special student, becoming a regular student when the monography is to be prepared (if the CR is equal to or above that required by the university)


Application Period

  • for beginning in March: November 1 to November 30
  • for beginning in August: June 1 to June 30

**For further information about deadlines refer to the Graduate Office and http://www.ime.unicamp.br/posgrad/inscricao.


Curricular Structure  (see Regulation for further details)

The workload is 420 classroom hours which is equivalent to 7 courses of 60 hours. Among these, the following courses are required:

  • Introduction to Linear Algebra (MM 201)
  • Introduction to Analysis (MM202)
  • Introduction to Analysis in Rn (MM210)
  • Introduction to Algebra (MM 205)
