Classical Studies and Mathematics MA (Hons)

UK

What will I learn?

Classical Studies - Classical Studies includes the study of Greek and Roman literature alongside social and cultural history, philosophy, religion and art. The course encourages new ways of seeing the classical and modern worlds. All Classical Studies modules use English texts. Classical Studies at St Andrews allows you to discover and debate the nature of Athenian democracy, the power of Greek tragedy, the purpose of ancient erotic fiction, the imposing beauty of Roman sculpture or the twists and turns of Platonic dialogue.

Mathematics - The MA (Hons) in Mathematics will teach you to understand complex patterns and structures, and develop the tools with which to analyse them. Whether these patterns relate to physical or biological phenomena or the structure of mathematics itself, the primary aim is to describe, categorise, and understand the processes involved. Students of Mathematics will acquire the analytical techniques, clear logical thinking and deductive reasoning necessary to explore some of these fascinating areas of research.

You should clearly state in your Personal Statement on your application why you were unable to take either the SAT or ACT. If you do submit scores, we look for the following: ACT: score of 28+ (writing optional). Applicants are welcome to submit all of their ACT test scores. We will consider the highest scores submitted for each section across multiple testing dates. SAT: score of 1320+ (essay optional). We will assess the SAT total score out of 1600 and will focus on individual sub-scores in a holistic manner and within the context of the overall application. We will superscore the SAT.
