Mathematics and physics are subjects that naturally overlap in fields such as applied mathematics and theoretical physics. This joint course offers preparation for careers including industrial or academic research and development, computing, education and areas needing a pragmatic, numerate and analytical approach to problem solving. Designed for those with an enquiring mind, this degree provides a broad education in how theoretical and experimental physics can be used to describe the universe, alongside mathematics modules designed to challenge and stimulate your academic curiosity. Throughout your course you will devote half your time to physics and half to mathematics. You can choose between a theoretical project and laboratory work in your final year, depending on your interests. All the core content required for the degree to be accredited by Institute of Physics (IoP) and the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA). Distinctive features This course offers: An opportunity to combine the study of mathematics and physics The involvement of research-active staff in course design and delivery Frequent opportunities to conduct practical work in the School’s laboratory facilities An opportunity to develop an ease with abstract mathematical concepts, logical argument and deductive reasoning A firm basis for conducting physics research in a range of theoretical and practical areas, including the skills to manage an extended project An emphasis on independent learning Effective course monitoring and opportunities for student feedback An accredited route into a physics or mathematics profession - all the core content required for the degree to be accredited by Institute of Physics (IoP) and the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA)
