University of Bristol has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
If you love the challenge of thinking through a maths question and feeling the delight of having solved a difficult problem, but also want to think about a broad range of intellectual questions in a rigorous way, this four-year course is for you.
Linked by the formal study of logic, the two components of the course complement each other as you develop rigorous analysis and argument distinctive of the 'analytic' philosophical tradition alongside the mathematical maturity to reason through subtle ideas in abstract mathematics.
There is also the opportunity to use your mathematical knowledge in the study of the philosophy of biology, economics and physics.
The fourth year of the course allows you to explore mathematics and philosophy in depth, taking advantage of our research-inspired, specialist units.
