Course summary

This MSc in Mathematical Sciences will develop your mathematical knowledge through a range of modules concentrated on one of our research specialisms in algebra, number theory, geometry and analysis, mathematical physics and mathematical biology. It will provide a bridge to world-class research in one of these areas.

It combines both traditional mathematics subjects with advanced courses that will prepare you for an array of numerate and analytical professions to be found at the core of the digital economy as well as prepare you for a PhD or other research paths.

As part of the Department of Mathematics at York, you will join our friendly and welcoming community. You'll benefit from high-quality teaching by expert staff, who are engaged in world-leading research in many areas of mathematics.

Course content

You choose a route through this degree which concentrates either on pure mathematics or, within the mathematics of the natural sciences, on mathematical physics or mathematical biology. In each, you'll take modules which prepare you for research, aligned with our research groups. You'll also have the opportunity to take modules outside your route to broaden the scope of your study.

The single route in Pure Mathematics centres on algebra and number theory with additional material in geometry and analysis.

In Applied Mathematics we offer two routes, one in mathematical physics and another in mathematical biology. There is overlap in areas such as partial differential equations and current hot topics which bridge the natural sciences, such as soft matter.

Careers and skills

The skills you develop on this course are in high demand in advanced careers that rely on logic and problem solving. It's also ideal preparation if you want to take your studies to a higher level.
