Mathematics and Philosophy BA Hons
Uncover the fundamental workings of the universe and develop a high-level of reasoning through our exciting and challenging program. While studying mathematics and philosophy, you will gain a wealth of skills, knowledge, and experience, preparing you for your chosen career.
Maths and philosophy are both difficult to concisely define, but at their core, they are concerned with the underlying workings and meaning of the universe. Maths is the study of change, patterns, quantities, structures, and space, while philosophy is concerned with fundamental problems in topics such as knowledge and reason.
Over the three years, you will be able to draw on expertise from two specialist departments: Mathematics and Statistics; and Politics, Philosophy, and Religion. This is an engaging program of study and our reputation for excellence in research means that we are able to offer high-quality teaching delivered by academics who are leaders in their field.
In the first year, you will build on your previous knowledge and understanding of mathematical methods and concepts. Modules cover a wide range of topics from calculus, probability, and statistics to logic, proofs, and theorems. As well as developing your technical knowledge and mathematical skills, you will also enhance your data analysis, problem-solving and quantitative reasoning skills.
During this year, you will also receive an introduction to philosophy, which will provide you with insight into some of the central problems of the discipline and the theories produced in response to them, as well as technical concepts, vocabulary, and some of the techniques of reasoning and analysis associated with the discipline.
In the second year, you will further develop your knowledge in complex and real analysis, and abstract and linear algebra. These highly analytical topics will complement your study of philosophy, which will really begin to expand and develop this year. You will be able to choose from a range of philosophy modules, such as Epistemology, Metaphysics, Modern Political Thought, and Philosophy of Science. This will allow you to build a solid repertoire of philosophy knowledge and analytical skills while gearing your studies towards your own interests and aspirations.
