Course summary

If you love the challenge of thinking through a maths question and the satisfaction of having solved a difficult problem, but also want to think about a broad range of intellectual questions in a rigorous way, this four-year course is for you.Linked by the formal study of logic, the two components of the course complement each other. You will develop rigorous analysis and argument distinctive of the analytic philosophical tradition, while developing mathematical maturity to reason through subtle ideas in abstract mathematics.There is also the opportunity to use your mathematical knowledge in the study of the philosophy of biology, economics and physics.The fourth year of the course allows you to explore mathematics and philosophy in depth, taking advantage of our research-inspired, specialist units.In your first year you will take 80 credit points of mathematics units in common with all other first year maths students, including linear algebra, topics in calculus and differential equations, analysis and an introduction to the ideas of proof and group theory. In philosophy you will take 40 credit points in two mandatory introduction to philosophy units.In year two, a unit in realism and normativity is compulsory, leaving much scope to tailor the rest of your year to your own interests. This continues in the third and fourth year, allowing you to choose a variety of units in both mathematics and philosophy. You will complete a philosophy project in your fourth year.
