What will I learn?

Mathematics at university encourages you to think in an entirely different way. As well as developing a rigorous mindset, a mathematics degree introduces you to new mathematical concepts and delves into areas you won' t have explored at school. By the end of your programme, you will specialise in an area of your particular interest.Learning a new way of approaching and analysing complex problems is a particularly valuable skill, applicable to many exciting career paths. This makes maths graduates extremely employable.**Areas of study**The MA Mathematics programme combines the study of mathematics with an art or humanities subject of your choice, selected from the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Science. In Years 1 and 2, up to half of your time will be spent studying your chosen arts or humanities subject. The rest of your time will be spent on mathematics.From Year 3 onwards, you will study mathematics only. You can choose to specialise in a particular aspect of mathematics or study courses across the broad range offered by our school.
