Gain specialist knowledge in pure and/or applied mathematics. You’ll be prepared for a variety of technical and non-specialised careers.Mathematics underlies all the physical sciences and is increasingly involved in biological sciences, social sciences and management. It is needed to make quantitative predictions from scientific theories. You’ll specialise in pure and/or applied mathematics whilst having the option to study units in statistics, computing, physics, and economics. As with all of our mathematics courses you will have the option to switch after the first year, so you can keep your options open when you apply. You’ll develop the specialist skills and knowledge for a technical career as well as receiving good training in analytical thinking. This combination of skills and knowledge means you will also be well-suited to non-specialist careers such as computing, financial services and management. The Master of Mathematics (MMath) course provides you with the same core skills and knowledge of the Bachelor’s but with a greater exposure to research. You’ll study masters level units and a two-semester research project, preparing you for postgraduate study or a career in academic or industrial research.
