This is a two-year full-time taught course. It is aimed at students who have a primary degree with a significant Mathematical content (such as Mathematical Studies graduates), but who do not hold an Honours Degree in Mathematics. The MA course is equivalent to taking a Higher Diploma in Mathematics followed by the MSc by examination. A mark of 50% is required to proceed to second year. Candidates who fail to reach the mark of 50% may be awarded a Higher Diploma in Mathematics, subject to a threshold of 40%.
Modules include Numerical Analysis, Point Set Topology, Research projects, Complex Analysis, Rings and Fields, Functional Analysis, Riemann Surfaces, Algebraic Topology, Partial Differential Equations and Introduction To Programming For Mathematicians.
The Course provides a broad introduction to Mathematics at the graduate level, and provides an excellent foundation for those who intend to go on to pursue the PhD.
