Overview

There are many close links between mathematics and physics. Physics uses mathematics to make predictions about the world and many areas of mathematics have developed because of the need to solve physical problems. Mathematics graduates who are numerate and who have a high level of competence in problem solving skills are in considerable demand in a wide variety of areas of employment. This degree programme will provide you with the opportunity to gain mathematical knowledge and skills and to develop your interest in physics. The degree structure allows you a good deal of choice as to which areas of mathematics and physics you specialise in, while ensuring the overall coherence of your individual choice of courses.

Transfer to this programme is normally only possible early in Semester 1 of the first year from a number of other programmes in the School.

Career opportunities

Graduates whose degrees combine the mathematical skills of problem solving and analytical argument with those acquired through extensive study in the physical sciences are at a premium. It is no surprise therefore to find mathematical physicists working in a wide variety of jobs. For just one example it is well known that many of the financial analysts who work on Wall Street are physicists by training.

The physics part of the course enables you to learn about many modern developments and theories, including key ideas of relativity, cosmology and astrophysics, applications of laser technology, atomic and particle physics, optoelectronics and many others.
