The MSc Mathematics course has been designed for students who wish to build on their BSc, extending their range of mathematics expertise across a broader spread of topics, and demonstrating their literature research skills through an extended dissertation.
Such a qualification will mark graduates out as having a broader and deeper understanding of mathematics, and the skills required to pursue a significant project with a high level of independence, presenting their results in a written report. This will give MSc Mathematics graduates an edge in the ever more competitive jobs market.
On the course you will study different elements of mathematics in a broad sense - including mathematical elements of computing if desired - in addition to developing your research, project management, and written communication skills through a project you will undertake. You will be fully supported to ensure that your project further develops an excellent foundation for your future career plans.
As a student on the MSc Mathematics course you will study a range of modules covering various topics such as:
- Algebraic coding theory
- Black-Scholes theory
- Data science
- Differential geometry
- Fourier analysis
- Ito calculus
- Lie theory
- Numerical analysis
- Partial differential equations
- Stochastic processes
- Statistical mechanics
On top of the modules you study, you will also complete a dissertation as part of your studies.
