BSc Mathematics

Mathematics provides the logical foundations on which all of science, engineering and technology are built. Our BSc Mathematics course gives you the chance to study both fundamental topics and their modern applications, including:

  • Pure mathematics, including geometry, algebra, analysis and number theory
  • Applied topics such as mathematical physics, cryptography, mathematical modelling, differential equations and dynamical systems
  • Statistical, financial and analytical methods such as optimisation and the study of risk

As well as these mathematical topics, your degree will develop your programming skills in languages such as Python and SQL, and you will learn to solve sophisticated problems using computational toolkits such as Matlab, Maple and R.

Our department recognises the stand-alone and interdisciplinary aspects of mathematics, and your degree provides an exceptional range of in-demand transferrable skills for mathematically oriented careers, from business, to finance and commerce, industry, research, government, education and beyond. All our mathematical sciences degrees feature an employability component in every year, explicitly training sought-after skills and incorporating careers day events and seminars from speakers in industry.
