Mathematics as a scientific discipline acts fascinating and is positioned on the top of the pyramid of knowledge. It is a set of ideas that are themselves beautiful enough to engross human attention. It is impossible to imagine any serious scientific discipline without mathematics.

Mathematics occupies a very important place in modern science in which very complex and difficult problems are often solved by reducing them to the mathematical expressions, formulas and equations whose resolution can come up with solutions.

Job opportunities for graduates of the Department of Mathematics are numerous, so that almost all the students immediately after graduation quickly find employment. The best students are offered positions at the Faculty. Students whose major is in mathematical education and teaching easily find employment as teachers or professors of mathematics and / or computer science in primary and secondary schools, and students of other majors are offered a number of places outside educational sector, such as: banks, software engineering house.

Mathematicians and computer scientists are among rare experts who have no problem to find a suitable job.

O Odsjeku...


Department of Mathematics is one of five departments of the Faculty of Science and has been part of the University of Sarajevo since 1950. Activities of the Department are educational and scientific. As a part of the educational activities we offer high-quality study programmes in the field of mathematics and computer science. Study programmes are organized in three cycles 3 + 2 + 3 in line with the Bologna principles. After successful completion of the first cycle of studies lasting three years students receive an academic title Bachelor of mathematics / Bachelor of mathematics and computer science / Bachelor of software engineering in dependence on the main direction of their studies. After an additional two years of the second cycle of studies, the title of Master of mathematics/Master of applied mathematics/Master of software engineering is awarded.
