Mathematicians are in demand in many branches: banks, insurance, business consultancy, the computer industry, and many more. The bachelor’s program acquaints students with the principles of mathematical thought and work and introduces them to the most important subdisciplines of the field. Students can design part of the course of study themselves by choosing lecture courses on specialized topics and elective courses, e.g., in physics, computer science, or economics. Graduates of the bachelor’s program are qualified to begin the master’s program. Prior knowledge in advanced mathematics is not a prerequisite, but a solid background in school mathematics is useful. It is possible to switch between the teacher education program and the bachelor’s program in the early phases of the course of study.

Please note:
From the summer semester 2020 on there may be deviations from individual regulations of the admission regulations, selection and entrance examination regulations as well as the study and examination regulations from the Corona Statutes [de].

The versions of statutes with relevance to teaching and learning provided on this page by the Department of Legal Affairs (in particular admission and selection regulations as well as subject and examination regulations) are primarily for information purposes. This means that all amendments subsequently agreed upon by the University Senate have been integrated into the respective text of the original statutes; in the case of the examination regulations for bachelor's and master's degree programmes, this generally relates to extracts of the respective examination regulations (framework examination regulations, subject-specific provisions, and appendices).
The greatest care has been taken in writing these versions. Nevertheless, it cannot be entirely ruled out that errors may have occurred. Consequently, it is solely the officially announced statutes and statute amendments that are legally binding, i.e. as published in the Amtlichen Bekanntmachungen der Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg im Breisgau [de] or, up to the year 2000, in the official gazette of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts.
