Mathematics

Our prestigious four-year Master of Mathematics degree programme will allow you to delve deeper and really develop your interests in pure and applied mathematics. Our flexible course format will enable you to decide whether you want to focus on pure mathematics, applied mathematics, or a combination of the two. And – as well as engaging in the study of essential mathematical theory and technique – you’ll have the opportunity to carry out a substantial research project in your final year. The project is designed to not only allow you to experience the challenge of independent study and discovery, but to also develop skills are essential to many future careers Complete your studies with distinction you may want to join our active group of postgraduate students, as our Masters programme is also excellent preparation for a career in research – either in industry or within a university. And research is just one of the many challenging career paths open to our Master of Mathematics students. **Course Structure** The first two years of our Masters course run in parallel with our three-year BSc programme, with more specialised content being covered in your third and fourth years. In these final two years you will learn advanced principles through a huge range of optional subjects, as well as undertaking an independent project. **Year 1** The first year will develop your skills in calculus and other topics you may have covered at A-level, such as mechanics and probability. Modules on problem solving and how to present mathematical arguments will encourage you to develop ways of tackling unfamiliar problems while also providing an opportunity for group working. And modules on algebra and analysis will introduce important new concepts and ideas, which you will use in following years. **Year 2** As you progress into your second year, you will continue to learn essential algebraic principles through compulsory modules while also taking a selection of optional modules to suit your personal interests. In addition, you’ll be introduced to mathematical software, which will be invaluable in your individual fourth year MMath project. The optional modules on offer change each year but in previous years you could have chosen to study the theory of special relativity, take a module focusing on topology, or see how the mathematical theory you’ve already studied can be applied to meteorology. **Year 3** By year three there are no compulsory modules. Instead you’ll choose six modules from a range of approximately 15 on offer. The module topics vary each year, mirroring the research interests of our lecturers. By this stage we anticipate that you will have found the areas of mathematics that most appeal to you, and that you’ll use this year to focus on these topics, laying the foundations for a successful final-year research project. **Year 4** You will undertake a substantial individual project during your final year, working under the close supervision of a lecturer whose expertise matches your chosen subject. Each of our lecturers will propose project titles covering a wide range of current mathematical research, but some of our students choose to devise their own topics in conjunction with one of our lecturers. Recent topics have ranged from “The Mobius function of Finite Groups” to “The Aerodynamics of Golf Balls” (a topic suggested by the student). In order to be assessed, you’ll submit a written report on the project, and you’ll give a short oral presentation on your findings to your lecturers and fellow Masters students. Besides your individual project, your studies will focus on Master’s-level modules that explore topics such as lie algebra, fluid structure interaction and mathematical biology. As with years two and three, the optional modules offered in your final year usually change every year. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
