Course summary

Our MPhys Mathematics and Physics degree is ideal for those looking to combine the logic and proof of mathematics with the profound insights into the physical world offered by the study of physics.There is a profound connection between physics and mathematics. It is not simply that mathematics is a useful tool, but as put by Galileo Galilei: "The book of nature is written in the language of mathematics.”Our MPhys (Hons) Mathematics and Physics degree gives you the opportunity to learn and think as both physicist and mathematician, providing an appreciation of the world around us through a deeper understanding of both disciplines.This stimulating Mathematics and Physics degree enables you to gain a deep understanding of physical phenomena combined with the rigour necessary to appreciate the mathematical foundations that underpin our physical theories. Over the three years of study you will take modules in such areas as symmetry, conservation laws, electromagnetism, relativity, condensed matter physics, quantum physics and the physics of materials.In addition to the core physics programme you will take additional modules in pure and applied mathematics. The final year of the MPhys includes advanced physics and pure mathematics modules as well as a substantial research project on mathematical physics.
