Explore cutting-edge research techniques and advanced mathematical methods. On this integrated master's degree, you'll learn to model, analyse and solve real-world problems in business and industry. You’ll develop advanced analytical and quantitative skills, and study topics such as optimisation and modelling. Southampton is one of the few places in the UK to offer this MMORSE degree.

Your A level results will determine which core or compulsory modules you'll need to take.

This 4-year Mathematics, Operational Research, Statistics and Economics (MORSE) degree is a broad, business-oriented integrated master's.

The course is similar to the BSc MORSE for the first 3 years, then introduces more challenging concepts such as game theory, data mining and survival analysis.

This course will develop your abilities in:

  • problem-solving
  • logical argument
  • deductive reasoning
  • abstraction
  • generalisation

It is ideal for students pursuing a career as a:

  • mathematician
  • operational researcher
  • statistician
  • economist

You’ll also have the flexibility to specialise in an area of your choice for your research project.

As part of this course you can:

  • discover a range of mathematical techniques, such as graphical networks, cost models, decision processes and statistical modelling
  • solve real-world problems using mathematics and other skills
  • use our student centre, a dedicated learning and social space for maths students
  • explore mathematical and computational packages such as Python and the statistics package 'R'

We'll teach you through a combination of lectures and workshops. Our staff are leading researchers in fields like game theory, healthcare modelling and experiment design.

We regularly review our courses to ensure and improve quality. This course may be revised as a result of this. Any revision will be balanced against the requirement that the student should receive the educational service expected. Find out why, when, and how we might make changes.

Our courses are regulated in England by the Office for Students (OfS).
