Course summary

By studying Italian alongside your mathematics, you will have the chance to explore Italy’s role as the cradle of European culture and its influential contributions to modern literature, film, the visual arts, fashion and design. There has always been a logical connection between the study of mathematics and languages and this programme allows you to immerse yourself in both and leave the doors open as to your future career options.Galileo famously described the universe as a book written in a mathematical language, and this concept of mathematics as a universal language has never been more relevant in our technologically advanced and globalised world. On this programme you will gain a thorough grounding in the key concepts and methods of mathematics, which comprises 75% of the programme, whilst honing your Italian language skills and gaining valuable cross-cultural perspectives. Our Italian classes are taught by language specialists with research interests in Italian film, literature and the visual arts. Most of them are native speakers and our oral classes are all taught in Italian. We teach modern languages at beginner or advanced levels, depending on your previous experience.All three years of this joint honours programme are completed in the UK. Its modular structure allows you to tailor your studies to your own interests. Our Department of Mathematics is internationally renowned for its work in pure mathematics, information security, statistics and theoretical physics, and our broad curriculum spans pure and applied mathematics, statistics and probability, and the mathematics of information and of financial markets. You will not only improve your numerical skills and your proficiency at reading, writing, listening and speaking in Italian, but you will also develop transferrable skills such as critical thinking, analysis, research, data handling and creative problem solving. Both departments offer friendly and motivating learning environments and a strong focus on small group teaching and academic support, with a personal adviser to guide you throughout your studies. We also offer a competitive work placement scheme.Specialise in mathematics but hone your language skills by learning Italian to an advanced level.Work across two friendly departments, where the focus is on small group teaching and you will be known as an individual.Tailor your degree to your own interests, with our wide range of optional modules.
