About Mathematical Sciences (Single Honours) at University College Cork

Overview

BSc Mathematical Sciences is an ideal broadly-based degree course for students who wish to develop their mathematical knowledge and ability to a level that is highly valued by employers.

Our students enjoy mathematics, were good at mathematics in school andwant to make significant use of their mathematical skills in their careers. This course will help you tocapitalise on your interest in mathematics by completing a strongly numerate degree.

You will studya wide range of topics across mathematics, applied mathematics and statistics, concentrating on theareas you like most, without becoming unduly specialised.

You don't need to have studied Applied Mathematics for Leaving Certificate, though naturallythis would be an advantage.

Course Details

You will study modules in mathematics, applied mathematics and statistics, with significantchoice of topics, especially in Years 3 and 4.

In Year 1 you will both review much of whatyou learned in Leaving Certificate mathematics, with an emphasis on understanding, and build onthis.

Each year, you will encounter new areas in the mathematical sciences,from modules in theoretical aspects of mathematics to its practical applications, the balancedepending on your emerging interests.

You will learn programming skills in a mathematical context,will gain experience of working in groups, and you will learn written and oral exposition skills, notleast through your final-year research projects or through your work in statistical consultancy.
