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.

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.

  • Students concentrate on Mathematics (Pure) - learning how to think hard and rigorously about Mathematical questions;
  • In the final two years, central areas of Mathematics such as Complex Analysis, Topology and Group Theory are studied in depth;
  • Select from a range of courses in rapidly growing areas such as: Differential Geometry, Numerical Analysis, Probability, Statistics and Graph Theory;
  • Develop the ability to invent, criticise and perfect new Mathematics for yourself and to solve new problems;
  • Take Mathematics topics related to key developments in technology, software, economics and other applications.
  • See CAREER OPTIONS tab for more details about the range of Mathematics options at MU.
