Mathematics and Psychology BSc (Hons)
School of Science and Engineering
Study both pure and application-driven maths and also examine how the human mind works from infancy to old age
You will study both pure and application-driven mathematics. By the time you finish your degree, you will be able to use maths to solve practical problems. Computers are used extensively in modern maths and we will introduce you to various mathematical software preparing you for industry.
Our course will allow you to deepen your knowledge of mathematical techniques supporting industry, science, engineering, commerce, finance, and education. You will also develop your analytical skills to an advanced level.
Your maths skills will come in useful for analysing the statistical data that we use in the Psychology modules.
Psychology is the scientific study of the mind and behaviour. Topics we cover include how babies learn, the way in which people's mental skills change as they grow older, personalities types, and social group dynamics. You will also study different psychological disorders.
You will also learn how to think critically and to solve problems. We will teach you to analyse data, write clearly and effectively, and be a confident communicator of science. You will learn how to plan, implement, and analyse your own research project.
