MS Mathematics is a Masters program taught at Lahore University of Management Sciences LUMS, . The program is offered in campus-based modes with full Time options. To successfully obtain MS Mathematics from Lahore University of Management Sciences LUMS you are required to complete 15 credit hours. After completion of MS Mathematics you will be able to further continue for advance studies or start career as Statistician, Actuary.

The Department of Mathematics at the Syed Babar Ali School of Science and Engineering (SBASSE) offers MS degrees in the areas of Pure Mathematics and Applied Mathematics. In both areas, students are required to do thesis research. The MS Mathematics programme deals with the most fundamental of all sciences and also the most applicable, as it is the rigorous study of structure, relationships and patterns.

The faculty at the Department of Mathematics works across a wide spectrum of Mathematical fields with research in Pure, as well as Applied Mathematics. Some examples of interests within Pure Mathematics are Algebraic Geometry, Algebraic Topology, Combinatorial Commutative Algebra, Functional Analysis, Fixed Point Theory, Operator Theory, Spectral Theory and Symmetries of Differential Equations, while those in Applied Mathematics include Numerical Methods, Mathematical and Computational Biology, Stochastic Processes, Epidemiology and Cancer Kinetics.
