Course summary

Set in 600 acres of countryside in North Staffordshire, we have one of the largest and most beautiful campuses in Britain. We’re proud to be No.2 in England for Student Satisfaction with Course (Guardian University League Table, 2020), investing more than £140m in our campus in the last ten years, including £45m new science laboratories. In 2021 we were proud to be awarded Sustainability Institution of the Year at the prestigious Green Gown Awards as part of our mission to become a carbon neutral campus by 2030. We're committed to supporting you to achieve your career goals, and have a dedicated Careers and Employability team who can assist you to navigate your options beyond Keele.Mathematics and Philosophy is a popular Keele combination which mixes analysis, rigour, history and abstract thought, together with thought-provoking questions. It is an excellent choice for anyone who wants to combine logical rigour with abstract thought and can lead to careers in software design, games programming, artificial intelligence, research, teaching and finance, to name a few. This Combined Honours Degree includes modules from both Philosophy and Mathematics, taught by mathematicians and philosophers who are all active researchers in their fields. You will explore the beauty, elegance and practicality of pure mathematics, applied mathematics and statistics. You will learn to use maths for a range of purposes which may include developing precise and logical arguments, constructing rigorous proofs, and formulating solutions to new problems. Mathematics helps you to take novel approaches to problem solving and make critical interpretations of data and text; your skills will be valuable wherever there’s a need for logical thinking. In Year one of Mathematics, you will study core material which may include calculus and algebra, while in subsequent years you can begin to tailor your programme according to your own strengths or interests.In Philosophy you’ll study logic and a range of philosophical questions about the world and the mind. As well as studying the work of renowned philosophers and a selection of traditional philosophical problems, you will be encouraged to formulate your own solutions – and to ask your own questions – in order to develop your philosophical skills. You will be assessed in a variety of ways, including by essays, videos, presentations and exams. The programme explores central themes such as metaphysics, mind, moral philosophy, religion, epistemology and political philosophy, considering key philosophical problems and the various solutions proposed. Keele has a thriving student led Philosophy Society, and you’ll have a chance to engage with philosophers from around the world through frequent research events such as the Royal Institute of Philosophy lecture series.
