Course content

Mathematics holds relevance to a wide variety of topics that drive advancement in the world. Without it, subjects such as physics, medicine, computer science, social sciences and finance would not be as they are today, or even in existence. Mathematics is seamlessly ingrained into our society and has provided us the tools and knowledge to question and understand the world we live in. Those who study mathematics are developing a critical subject that holds the upmost potential, however one desires to apply it.

This programme is based on our academic expertise and the latest developments in mathematics, and will provide you with a thorough grounding in the subject. In addition, you will branch into a specialist area of study as you conduct a substantial project in an area of your choice.

Our internationally leading research supports this programme and will give you the opportunity to study a range of mathematical topics that include: dynamical systems, mathematical biology, weather and climate modelling, probability and stochastics, mathematical analysis, and number theory.

Upon successful graduation, you will have access to a wide range of career opportunities, such as those requiring skills in mathematical reasoning, modelling and computational analysis. In particular staff teaching on the programme have active collaborations with the insurance industry and the weather services. Those who have an interest in progressing their studies to PhD level will find this programme high relevant as it covers both fundamental and specialist advanced mathematics.

Programme structure

The programme comprises three compulsory taught modules and 90 credits of option modules. The taught component of the programme is completed in June with the project extending over the summer period for submission in September.

Compulsory Modules

The compulsory modules can include;

  • Research in Mathematical Sciences;
  • Advanced Mathematics Project

Optional Modules

Some examples of the optional modules are as follows;

  • Logic and Philosophy of Mathematics;
  • Methods for Stochastics and Finance;
  • Mathematical Theory of Option Pricing;
  • Dynamical Systems and Chaos;
  • Fluid Dynamics of Atmospheres and Oceans;
  • Modelling the Weather and Climate;
  • The Climate System;
  • Algebraic Number Theory;
  • Algebraic Curves;
  • Waves, Instabilities and Turbulence;
  • Magnetic Fields and Fluid Flows;
  • Statistical Modelling in Space and Time
  • Mathematical Modelling in Biology and Medicine.

The modules we outline here provide examples of what you can expect to learn on this degree course based on recent academic teaching. The precise modules available to you in future years may vary depending on staff availability and research interests, new topics of study, timetabling and student demand.
