Overview

Mathematics is about profound beauty, the rush-like excitement of the ‘ah ha’ moment, and finding elegant solutions. It’s the relationship between patterns, systems, big data, technologies, and science.

Mathematical training develops specific skills and broad analytical expertise, which are valued across all professions. There is also a particular demand for graduates who not only have quantitative skills but also know how to use them.

Economics is the study of how people interact with others and their surroundings, and here at Stirling Economics is looked at in a rich and varied way: from artificial intelligence in the labour market to addressing climate change, and from behavioural economic insights in decision making to tackling global poverty and inequality. An Economics degree from Stirling empowers you with sharp analytical tools, from experts in their field, with an ever-present emphasis on intellectual curiosity.

The expert staff at Stirling will give you an insight into professional practices through their cutting-edge research and links to the industry. You’re also free to combine your studies with one of eight other courses, sharpening your focus on a specific area that complements your growing knowledge of economics.

Programme structure

In Semesters 1-3, you’ll take Mathematics plus two other subjects. The material covered at a secondary level is reviewed and applied before being developed further, ensuring a smooth transition from a school teaching approach to a university one.

You’ll take core modules in Calculus of One and Several Variables; Vectors, Matrices, Complex Numbers and their Application in Geometry and Systems Theory; Probability; and Analysis. You can also opt to take an additional mathematics module in Statistics and Discrete Structures.

In Semesters 4-8, the Applied Mathematics Honours course covers a broad range of skills. Advanced modules cover the following key areas: mathematical techniques for solving a wide range of problems; the theory underlying these mathematical techniques; and model-building, for example, converting real-world problems into mathematical form. This will include projects that allow further development of skills in areas of applied mathematics.
