Mathematics is the language that underpins the rest of science. Our Department of Mathematical Sciences has an international reputation in many areas like such as semi-group theory, optimisation, probability, applied statistics, bioinformatics and mathematical biology.
Graduate Diplomas last for six to nine months (full-time) and include the modules and assessed work of a Masters, without a dissertation. Our Graduate Diploma in Mathematics gives you training in basic mathematics techniques if your first degree contained only a modest amount of mathematics, so that you can proceed to a Masters in mathematics.
At Essex, Mathematics has truly broad reach; we are working on projects ranging from the economic impact of the behaviour of dairy cows, to understanding crowd behaviour through modelling a zombie apocalypse, to circular Sudoku and other puzzles. Our interdisciplinary research recognises that mathematics, including what can be very abstract mathematics, is an essential part of research in many other disciplines.
You therefore gain an exceptional range of knowledge and skills that are currently in demand in mathematically oriented employment; in business, commerce, industry, government service, education and in the wider economy.
