B.sc Mathematics

This very flexible single-honours degree programme offers you the widest choice of options, ideal if you are mathematically gifted and wish to keep your options open. You get good all-round mathematical knowledge together with the ability to experience more specialised results, methods and ideas. You can choose courses from other disciplines and from a wide variety of mathematics options, allowing you to graduate with finely-honed skills in your chosen areas. A core of basic mathematics provides you with the fundamental mathematical knowledge and skills, and the basis for more advanced work later on. This core material is covered in the first three semesters, up to the mid-point of your second year. You develop your capacity to learn and apply mathematical ideas, to understand the significance and power of mathematics, and to acquire a thorough knowledge and understanding of those mathematical topics that any employer would expect of a mathematics graduate. After your first three semesters, you choose your lecture courses from a widening range of options in order that you can pursue whichever areas of mathematics most interest you. You can also, from your second year onwards, choose options from other subject areas. In your final year you can choose to do a project on a mathematical topic supervised by a member of staff.
