This balanced degree consists of half Mathematics and half Education. In Mathematics you will start by studying core modules in algebra, calculus and mathematical analysis, with optional modules available in probability, statistics, and differential equations. As you progress, you will be able to choose from a wide range of mathematics and statistics modules to suit your own interests. In Education, you will learn about the impact of educational policy on children and schools, how children learn and the place of assessment in the education system. You will also be able to choose to study areas which interest you particularly. These may include play, special educational needs, cultural diversity and the development of literacy and mathematics. You will also have full access to the department’s employability programme, giving you plenty of opportunity to think about life after graduation. Combining Mathematics and Education will enable you to develop skills of problem solving, analysis and communication which will fit you for employment in a number of graduate careers in either of your subjects. Because half of your degree will be in a teaching subject, you will also be able to apply for PGCE teacher training courses at either Primary or Secondary level.
