Master the logic, rigour and proof of mathematics alongside the universal principles of physics to prepare you for a wide range of careers. Mathematics and physics are disciplines with a natural affinity. Physics cannot be studied seriously without mathematics, and applied mathematics has its roots in the analysis of fundamental equations of physics. This course is for you if you enjoy and excel at mathematics and want to combine that knowledge with insights into the physical world. You’ll learn about the rigour and generality of mathematics and its role in formalising empirical physical laws. You'll also develop your experimental and computational expertise and strengthen your problem-solving, analytical and critical thinking skills. Flexibility This course gives you the benefit of studying in two departments, deepening your knowledge and understanding of both subjects. In the first two years, you'll study core topics in mathematics and physics. In the final year, you'll carry out a substantial research project choosing from a wide range of different topics and types of project. Our wide range of final year physics and mathematics options also enable you to tailor the balance between the two subjects to meet your individual interests and preferences. Master of Physics The MSci degree gives you the opportunity to enhance and deepen your knowledge compared to BSc courses, particularly regarding topics at the forefront of research. You’ll also carry out a major master’s level research project during your final year. This offers you an immersive and authentic experience of physics research and is excellent preparation for postgraduate study or a research career.
