About this course

Some of the greatest mathematicians have also been philosophers, and vice versa. On this joint honours course you’ll explore the close relationship between the two, tackling some of the biggest questions in philosophy - is there a god? What is morality? What does it mean to be human? - while developing advanced maths skills.

This degree will give you an excellent education in mathematics and philosophy. In your degree you can:

  • develop an understanding of philosophical questions such as ethics, reason and responsibility

  • gain a thorough understanding of key mathematical areas, including linear algebra, calculus, statistics and differential equations

  • apply philosophical thought to language, morality, sex and other important aspects of life

  • learn skills in mathematical investigation and research

  • study abroad at one of our partner institutions

You’ll be taught in small groups in a relaxed and friendly environment, and benefit from the expertise of academic staff whose researches feed directly into the course content.

You can take modules from other disciplines such as anthropology or psychology, studying a language, or choosing from a range of cross-disciplinary modules. These include topics such as social enterprise, risk management, and living and working on the web.
