| 1st year - 30 credits of Mathematics (Pure) is taken with 1 or 2 other Arts subjects in 1st year (excluding groups 1 & 3)
2nd year - Mathematics (Pure) may be taken with another Arts subject, or it may be taken as a Major/Minor with the Arts subject or Statistics
- As a Single Major, students take Mathematics (Pure) only in 3rd year. Students require a mark of 50% or greater in 1st year Mathematics (Pure) to proceed to 2nd year in Mathematics (Pure). Students attaining a mark below 50%, and who are eligible to proceed to 2nd year, progress to 2nd year Mathematical Studies, or progress with Statistics and other 1st year subject, or with the two other subjects you took in 1st year.
- Optional 10 credit Electives in 2nd year
Students may apply to study overseas after 2nd year (on Erasmus or Study Abroad) and graduate with a BA (International) after 4 years. See the International Studies website for details. Duration: 3 years (BA) or 4 years (BA International) Disclaimer The modules below are indicative of the content associated with this course of study. The modules are subject to change as the curriculum is revised and reviewed annually. Please check periodically for updates. | Year 1 | | Mathematics is the logical and abstract study of pattern. It involves an interplay between the concrete and the abstract: the ever-changing world around us is one of the key inspirations for the invention and investigation of abstract mathematics, and the discoveries of abstract mathematics have important and unexpected applications in the world around us. Our Mathematics degrees aim to bridge the gap between school Mathematics and current frontiers of knowledge. You will learn to think hard and rigorously about questions and to solve new problems – invaluable skills that can be transferred to any area of life and any job you hold in future. A degree in a Mathematical discipline opens the door to jobs in a variety of fields such as finance, trading, insurance, information technology, education, data analysis, scientific research and development. The Department offers multiple programmes to suit a range of Mathematical backgrounds, from the intensive Pure Mathematics programmes, which are aimed at students with a strong interest in abstract mathematics and a flair for analytical reasoning, to the more applied programmes which appeal to students who enjoy the more concrete areas of the subject. Choose this subject if you are interested in - Concentrating on Mathematics (Pure) - learning how to think hard and rigorously about Mathematical questions;
- Taking a degree where you are prepared for research in Mathematics and its applications. In the final two years, central areas of Mathematics such as Complex Analysis, Topology and Group Theory are studied in depth;
- Selecting from a range of courses in rapidly growing areas such as: Differential Geometry, Numerical Analysis, Probability, Statistics and Graph Theory;
- Developing the ability to invent, criticise and perfect new Mathematics for yourself and to solve new problems;
- Taking Mathematics topics related to key developments in technology, software, economics and other applications.
- In 1st year, Mathematics (Pure) is taken as a double subject (timetabled in groups 1 and 3) with one or two other Arts subjects excluding groups 1 and 3.
- Admission to 2nd Arts Mathematics (Pure) (MT2DM or MT2MJ) is conditional on students obtaining a mark of 50% or better in the 1st year Mathematics (Pure) (MT1F30) examination.
- 1st year minimum entry requirement: Leaving Certificate (or equivalent) H2 Mathematics.
