Course Summary

Physics and Astronomy may be studied in Exeter together with Mathematics as part of a 3 year BSc Mathematics and Physics combined honours degree programme. The programme is designed so that there are no differences in the workload in comparison to the Single Honours degrees, and is particularly popular amongst those who want to pursue a PhD, or go into teaching. It is also normally possible to transfer to Single Honours Mathematics, or Single Honours Physics programmes during the first year of study (subject to capacity and academic performance).BSc Mathematics and Physics allows you to explore the interplay between the two disciplines, learning to understand the ways in which they co-exist and complement each other. You will benefit from the flexibility and freedom to choose from a wide range of optional modules, enabling you to specialise if desired. Options include many of the physics modules available to Single Honours students, but also mathematics courses with great relevance to physicists, such as pure mathematics: Combinatorics, Galois Theory and Number Theory, and applied options like: Mathematics of Climate Change, Cryptography, and Mathematical Biology and Ecology. Just like in physics, all academic staff in mathematics are active, internationally recognised researchers across a wide range of applied, pure and theoretical topics.
