Our BSc (Hons) in Mathematics is much more than a traditional Mathematics degree. With an ever increasing demand for highly numerate and computer literate Mathematics graduates in the workplace we have tailored this programme to provide you with the skills most in demand by employers while still including the rigorous Mathematics content required to go on to further study at MSc and PhD level.
Our programme starts by reinforcing the mathematical foundations you will have studied at previous levels and gradually introduces more advanced and specialised content areas. Just like any other mathematics degree programme you will study traditional subjects such as Algebra and Calculus during every year of the programme. What sets our programme apart is the emphasis placed on the key areas of Mathematical & Statistical Modelling, Operational Research and Statistical Cybermetrics. The expertise and transferrable skills you will receive will leave you well positioned for any career associated with the mathematical sciences.
You will also be given guidance in the use of specialist mathematical, operational research and statistical software such as SPSS, Maple, GPSS, R and GAP. An appreciation of good professional practice and the development of essential employability skills are also embedded in the course.
