Course summary

Mathematicians are in demand across industry, finance, science and the arts, bringing analytical skills and problem-solving strategies to a range of issues. This degree is our most flexible course within mathematics, making you highly employable. Core areas include pure and applied mathematics, statistics and operational research. You can add options from other areas such as economics, sciences or languages. Southampton is ranked 11th in the UK for Mathematics (Guardian University Guide 2021). The core of the course is based on our BSc mathematics degree and covers the foundations of algebra, calculus, number theory and statistics. You’ll investigate the applications of mathematics in a variety of contexts and use mathematical and statistical models. As part of this course you’ll:

  • Develop your abilities in problem-solving, accurate calculation and logical argument
  • Be able to choose options from other subjects as well as specialise in actuarial and financial mathematics, operational research or statistics
  • Use our student centre, a dedicated learning and social space for maths students
  • Use mathematical and computational packages such as Python and the statistics package R
  • Be able to take a minor subject to broaden your studies
You’ll be taught through a combination of lectures and workshops, by leading researchers in fields, such as group theory, the mathematics of nature and experimental design.

Modules

This is the most flexible degree programme we offer. In each of the three years, alongside the core and optional mathematics modules, you have the chance to broaden your interests by studying subjects from outside mathematics, such as accountancy, economics, physics, computing, philosophy, languages, music or English. You therefore have a chance to develop a range of mathematical and other skills that will serve you well in a very wide variety of careers. In addition, our Curriculum Innovation Programme offers our students the chance to take optional modules outside their core disciplines. This allows you to personalise your education, to develop new skills and knowledge for your future.

Assessment method

You will be assessed in a variety of ways such as coursework, tests and exams, enabling you to demonstrate your strengths and show what you have learnt.
