This course trains you to approach abstract problems in a reasoned, logical way. You'll cover the same essential topics as other maths students, and choose from a huge range of options that introduce you to major thinkers and ask fundamental questions to challenge your understanding of the world around us.
There is a small but focused number of maths modules in the first two years, which allow you to build a powerful toolbox of mathematical techniques that you can apply to increasingly complex problems. You will also choose from a wide range of optional philosophy modules, which range from religion, ethics and politics, to feminism, the arts and death.
Some module options include more project work. This gives you the chance to put your mathematics skills into practice in different contexts and scenarios that you might encounter when you start work after graduation.
By the third year, you'll have the skills, knowledge and experience to go in lots of different directions in both mathematics and philosophy. We'll give you lots of optional modules to choose from, so you can study the topics that are most useful to the career path you want to take or that you enjoy the most.
