Master 2 MFA is the final year of training before working on a Ph.D. thesis. Our program offers many specialized and advanced courses needed to build a career in cutting-edge research in pure and applied mathematics. The curriculum of this program is revised annually according to our students' needs and availability of the future Ph.D. thesis directors. In particular, each year we proposed two very advanced courses which encompass the currents trends in our fields of expertise. This curriculum is managed in collaboration with the Universities of Southern Brittany and Angers.

Among the subject covered by our courses are:

- Partial Differential Equations,
- Algebraic Geometry,
- Riemannian & Kählerian Geometry,
- Applied Mathematics,
- Modelization,
- Mathematical Physics,
- Probability & Statistics,
- Spectral Theory,
- Algebraic Topology,
- Differential Topology,
- Image Processing,
- Complex Analysis, -Singularities & Analytical Geometry.

Here is the program for 2012-2013
