Why choose this course?

Our BSc (Hons) Mathematic degree is designed to reinforce and develop your skills as a mathematician so that you can apply them to a wide range of relevant career paths in the future. This maths degree is designed to give students a strong foundation in the subject, become an expert in analysing data and to take a contemporary approach to learning, so that your knowledge can be applied to real-world situations.

Studying BSc (Hons) Mathematics at the University of Wolverhampton will provide you with much more than that of a traditional maths degree. The demand for numerate and computer-literate mathematics graduates is constantly increasing,  and this course has been crafted to provide the skills most sought after by employers, as well as to provide the content you will need to go on to further study.

Our programme begins by building on the mathematical foundations you will have studied at previous levels and progressively introduces more complex content. Much like every other mathematics degree program, you're taught traditional academic subjects including algebra and calculus throughout your yearly degree in the discipline. What separates our programme from others is the emphasis we place on the key subject areas of mathematical and statistical modelling, operational research, and statistical cybermetrics. The skills and knowledge you will learn will be a great foundation for success in any career related to the mathematical sciences.

Additionally, you will be trained in the use of specialist mathematical, operational research and statistical software such as SPSS, Maple, GPSS, R, and GAP. As part of the course, students learn about good professional practices and develop essential employability skills.

What happens on the course?

Year 1: Mathematical foundations learned at previous levels will be reinforced with a focus on calculus, algebra, set theory, and mathematical proof at the beginning. You will build on this knowledge by studying probability and statistics, and operational research while gradually being introduced to mathematical and statistical software including Maple, Matlab, and R.

Year 2: In your second year of study, you will be introduced to more specialised and advanced mathematical topics including group theory, mathematical analysis, statistical modelling, discrete mathematics, operational research, and mathematical modelling.

Year 3: You will have a wide range of topics to choose from for your final year of study, including advanced calculus, financial mathematics, multivariate statistics with cybermetrics, cryptography, advanced operational research, pure mathematics, and partial differential equations. You will then also undertake a final year project, which is a substantial piece of independent study supervised by a member of academic staff.

Additional Information

Everything you need to know about this course!

The Mathematics department includes a team of staff with research pedigree in a number of fields, most notably that of statistical cybermetrics, led by a professor who has been consistently recognised as a leading international authority on the subject for many years.

We pride ourselves on the academic support and guidance given by our friendly and approachable staff. Students in the department have shown their appreciation for this by the exceptionally high ratings they have given their course in the National Student Survey in recent years.

On completion of your mathematics degree, you will be able to:

  • demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the essential concepts, principles, theories and techniques relating to mathematics, statistics and operational research.
  • use specialist computer software where appropriate, and model real-world situations, and apply mathematical, statistical, or operational research techniques to develop solutions to practical problems.
  • develop a range of transferable skills in problem solving, communication, project management, working individually and in teams.
