Please note: You will take 120 credits of modules in each year of study. The modules listed on the website for this programme are regularly reviewed to ensure they are up-to-date and informed by the latest research and teaching methods. Unless indicated otherwise, the modules listed for this programme are for students starting in 2019. On rare occasions, we may need to make unexpected changes to compulsory modules; in this event we will contact offer holders as soon as possible to inform or consult them as appropriate.
Joint Honours flexibility for programmes involving Mathematics
Every degree programme at the University is divided into 120 credits of study for each year of the programme. In the first year and second year of a Joint Honours programme with Mathematics, you will study 60 credits in each subject as you learn the core elements of your disciplines. We recognise that students on Joint Honours programmes might come to favour one subject slightly more than another. To account for this, we have added more flexibility into the final year of our programmes involving Mathematics. In your third year, you can stick with the 60-60 split between the two subjects or shift to a 80-40 credit weighting, effectively a major/minor combination.
During your years of study you will take compulsory language modules depending on your language proficiency (Beginner or post A-Level). You will then choose amongst a wide range of optional modules depending on the number of credits you are taking in the language.
You can find out more about the available modules dependent on your credit weighting for your chosen language via the My Choices website. The modules listed may occasionally be subject to change.
- Real Analysis and the Calculus (30)
- Vectors, Geometry and Linear Algebra (20)
- Mechanics (10)

You will spend your third year abroad studying and/or working in a French-speaking country.
- 80 credits - Independent Study in Mathematics (20)
- 60 credits - Independent Study in Mathematics (20 - if not taken in Music)
- 40 credits - No compulsory modules, students will use their Mathematics credits in optional modules
You will fill your remaining Mathematics credits with optional modules. As you will have gained a thorough grounding in many aspects of Mathematics during Years 1 and 2, you will be able to choose from an incredibly wide range of final year modules. Modules may include topics such as 'Research Skills in Mathematics', 'Mathematical Finance', 'Differential Equations' and 'Computability and Logic'.
