Course Summary

Mathematics is the fundamental language of physics and the University of Southampton has world class expertise in this area. The two departments of Mathematical Sciences and Physics & Astronomy collaborate through a Research Centre in this area: STAG (Southampton, Theory, Astronomy & Gravitation). STAG brings together our research teams in Theoretical Particle Physics, Theoretical Astronomy, Classical Gravity and String Theory, making this one of the largest such groupings in Europe. This four-year degree programme exploits this expertise and allows students to explore mathematical physics in detail.The programme will take you to the frontier of knowledge in this exciting field, allowing you to study as an undergraduate, material that would normally be taught at MSc level.Southampton mathematics graduates are in great demand. Many employers look for graduates with strong problem-solving skills who can develop sound analytical arguments. Depending on your degree specialism, a wide range of career destinations are available including mathematician, statistician, actuary and financial analyst. Our graduates are employed by organisations including Deloitte, British Airways, IBM, Amazon UK and Formula 1 racing teams.
