Mathematics is a subject that has fascinated humanity for thousands of years from the ancient world to the present day. A degree in Mathematics and Physical Geography will allow you to develop the skills to apply this knowledge to understanding the processes which structure the natural world.
The Department is highly rated for Mathematics in Wales, and in the most recent Research Excellence Framework (2014) assessment all of the research submitted by the Department in Mathematics was rated as being internationally recognised, with one in eight outputs being rated world-leading or internationally excellent. You can therefore be assured that you will be taught by leading and highly qualified academics in their respective fields.
Your BSc in Mathematics and Physical Geography will prepare you for a broad range of employment and further training options. You will be a strong candidate for opportunities in cartography, surveying, geographical information systems, teaching and research. Your degree would also be useful for careers involving logistics and distribution, transport planning and land management. These include working for organisations such as the Meteorological Office.
