Course Summary

This course delivers that sought-after combination – through our teaching style, and our focus on real-world applications of both mathematical and statistical techniques. For example, you’ll use the mathematics computing laboratories as an integral part of your learning process, making your study as much experimental as theoretical. Our Computing Science and Mathematics division provides a stimulating and supportive learning environment, and we’ve a strong and active research group. Its primary interest is the application of mathematics to biology, economics and life sciences, and we offer combined Honours degrees in the relevant disciplines. This course provides both the theoretical background and the quantitative skills you need to solve real-world problems. Of particular relevance at Stirling is the growing need for graduates with mathematical skills in the biological and environmental sciences. Stirling has a strong record of research in the application of mathematics to biological problems, for example, the spread of diseases in animals, and offers Combined Honours degrees in the relevant disciplines.

Psychology course sits at the cutting edge of inter-disciplinary scientific research. We focus on important societal problems such as detection of criminals and improvement of health outcomes. After introducing Psychology to you as a biological and social science, we’ll cover topics as diverse as brain functioning, development and social behaviour. You’ll develop a deep knowledge and understanding of mind and behaviour. Our course was recognized by the British Psychological Society for our innovative, student-led teaching initiatives and commitment to integrating employability. They described our course as being 'at the forefront of the student-led teaching experience in Psychology across the UK', and commended our staff, which ‘clearly care about the wellbeing and development of their students, and provide a nurturing learning environment’.
