This degree consists of two-thirds Mathematics and one-third Education. In Mathematics you will cover the essential core disciplines, supplemented by a great choice of elective specialities in areas related to the research interests of our friendly and approachable staff. Examples might include numerical methods in solid and fluid mechanics, quantum information theory, operator algebras and statistical analysis of high-dimensional data. 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 some other areas such as literacy development and you will have access to the department’s programme of employability activities, aimed at life after graduation. Combining Mathematics with Education will enable you to develop skills in problem solving, communication and advanced reasoning, which will fit you for employment in a number of graduate careers in either of your subjects. This degree is accredited by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, and you will also be able to apply for PGCE teacher training courses at either Primary or Secondary level.
