Course Summary

Mathematics can be seen as the most international of subjects – a global ‘language’ with ancient origins, which is now vitally important in our data-driven world, and this exciting new course combines mathematics with the study of exercise, physical activity and performance in sport.As a student on our three-year BSc Mathematics and Sports & Exercise Science, you will be taught in our new £31m Computational Foundry, a world class centre with state-of-the-art facilities for teaching and research, as well as networking and meeting spaces, to help prepare you for a successful and rewarding career. For the Sport & Exercise Science part of your degree, you will study in the high-quality facilities in the Engineering Quarter, also on our new Bay Campus.We are 5th and 6th in the UK for graduate prospects (Times & Sunday Times University Guide and Complete University Guide 2018) with 89.2% of our graduates in graduate employment or further study six months after leaving University (DHLE Survey 2016).Employers place great value on the ability to think rationally and to process data clearly and accurately, and Mathematics graduates earn on average 50% more than most other graduates. The most popular careers are the actuarial profession, the financial sector, IT, computer programming and systems administration, and opportunities within business and industry where employers need mathematicians for research and development, statistical analysis, marketing and sales. The Sports & Exercise Science elements of the degree will also train you for a potential career as a sport and exercise scientist or roles such as performance scientist, strength and conditioning practitioner, cardiac physiologist, performance analyst, and in physical activity and health promotion.Student satisfaction is at the forefront of our teaching goals, and we are very pleased to have recorded an overall satisfaction score of 91% in the 2017 National Student Survey. We are also proud that the Mathematics Department consistently appears in the QS World University Rankings.On the BSc Mathematics and Sports & Exercise Science course you will cover the general range of mathematical material over your three years, as well as topics such as human anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics and technology. The degree will give you a sound grounding in the basic concepts of Mathematics and in Sports & Exercise Science, allowing you to specialise in your chosen areas. It will also develop your ability to use and evaluate logical reasoning and construct rigorous arguments; and develop your oral and written communication skills as well as your ability to use modern communication tools, especially those most appropriate to mathematics.It will also give you knowledge and understanding of scientific methods of enquiry and their applications in sports science; and teach you laboratory and field methods and techniques for monitoring and evaluating the effects of physical activity on different populations."Studying at Swansea University has been a pleasure. The past two years have been a wonderful adventure, from discovering some of the Welsh culture, to learning from some of the best lecturers I have ever met. The thing that really stands out about Swansea is the huge support you get as a student - from absolutely everyone! Whenever I have had problems - whether personal, academic or financial - I have had someone to advise me, to listen to me and to help me." -- Alissa Kamilova, BSc Mathematics
