Course summary

How will Covid-19 affect this course?

This course will start online and may then continue on campus depending on the latest coronavirus policies.

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We’re proud to be ‘University of the Year for Student Experience’ in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too.At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both Mathematics and Philosophy.Philosophy and mathematics are naturally suited to each other. Many important philosophers, such as Descartes, Leibniz and Russell, were also accomplishedmathematicians. You’ll gain rigorous thinking skills, learn logical reasoning, and be encouraged to develop novel, imaginative approaches to difficult problems.Both Philosophy and Mathematics have a high approval rating (96% student satisfaction in NSS 2017).In a Combined Honours degree at Keele, each of two principal subjects is studied separately and equally (with a few minor exceptions). In Year one in mathematics, you will study core material in calculus and algebra, while in subsequent years you can begin to tailor your programme according to your own strengths or interests. For example, you can specialise in pure or applied mathematics, or explore probability and modelling. You will study in an intellectually stimulating environment amongst mathematicians producing world-leading research.In philosophy you’ll study logic and a range of philosophical questions about the world and the mind. As well as studying the work of renowned philosophers, and a selection of traditional philosophical problems, you will be encouraged to formulate your own solutions – and ask your own questions – in order to develop your philosophical skills. You will be assessed in a variety of ways, including by essays, presentations and exams.Mathematics graduates pursue a wide variety of careers, and options open to Combined Honours students can be especially broad. A degree in Mathematics and Philosophy teaches abstract reasoning, communication and critical thinking skills which opens the door to a wide range of careers. Graduates of this combined degree course have an excellent record of graduate employment and have gone on to careers in information management, games programming, finance, teaching, charity organising and artificial intelligence research, as well as further study. Other examples include actuarial training, aircraft engine design, Formula 1 car design, NHS project manager, operational research, software developer, scientific research, and statistician.
