Course summary

Introducing BSc Mathematics and Music:

Explore the historic connection between these two disciplines by studying elements of both mathematics and music. During your programme you will take compulsory mathematics courses, and study some of the theoretical and cultural aspects of music, such as listening and musicianship, music technology and composition.

Study abroad:

There are opportunities to study abroad through Erasmus or University-wide exchange programmes. Students from the School of Mathematics have recently completed placements in California, Sydney and British Columbia.

Career opportunities:

Our graduates have a range of careers open to them. The logical and analytical abilities, together with the presentation and practical problem-solving skills you will develop, are sought by employers.

Many recent graduates have been employed by large firms in the financial sector. Others have gone into fields including software engineering, logistics, education and civil service.

We regularly invite alumni back to the School to share their experiences with students and to showcase the breadth of careers available to maths graduates.

There are many opportunities within the School for you to develop your skills and enhance your CV. Share your love of mathematics by working with the wider community as a member of our Outreach Team; join our team of Student Ambassadors and enthuse prospective students; become a MathPALs leader and support Year 1 students; or apply for a project scholarship and work with a lecturer during the summer.
