Mathematics is a core scientific subject and an essential basis for a range of other sciences. This programme brings together the latest developments in a range of mathematical disciplines to provide you with a thorough grounding in the subject, together with a substantial project that can be used to develop a specialisation.
Internationally leading research supports this programme, with particular research strengths including magnetic fields, interface of algebraic number theory and abstract algebra, climate system dynamics and display-structure on crystalline cohomology.
The programme prepares you for a career in numerous industries or for progression to a PhD for those interested in pursuing a research pathway.
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.
The compulsory modules can include;
Some examples of the optional modules are as follows;
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.
