Course Information

Mathematics underpins all modern science and technology, and mathematicians are in high demand across a variety of fields.

University maths is about studying patterns in numbers, geometry and many other abstract concepts. It's also about applying those concepts in practical problem solving.

With a BSc in Mathematics from York, you can develop valuable skills for careers ranging from finance and IT to weather forecasting and engineering.

Year 1

In Year 1, you'll study a number of core modules which will give you a firm foundation across all areas of mathematics. They provide a platform for specialisation later in the degree.

Core modules

You will take core modules which may include:

  • Calculus 

  • Algebra 

  • Mathematical Skills I: Reasoning and communication  

  • Introduction to Probability and Statistics 

  • Real Analysis  

  • Introduction to Applied Mathematics 

Year 2

In Year 2, your time will be shared between core modules, and option modules in two of three possible specialisms.

Core modules

You will take core modules which may include:

  • Advanced Calculus

  • Advanced Linear Algebra

Option modules

You will choose two streams, each consisting of two modules, from:

  • Pure Mathematics stream (groups, rings and fields, number theory, geometry)

  • Applied Mathematics stream (classical and quantum dynamics, Newtonian gravity and special relativity, waves and fluids)

  • Probability and Statistics stream (applied probability, statistical inference, linear models)

Year 3

The main focus of your final year is your individual project. Alongside your project, you will choose from a range of option modules.

Core module

  • Final-year Project 

Option modules

The specialisms you choose during your second year will affect which options are open to you. You will take four option modules  concerning areas of mathematics which coincide with the Department's research interests. The precise nature of these modules may change, but the topics currently include:

Pure Mathematics: Algebraic Number Theory, Cryptography, Differential Geometry, Formal Languages and Automata, Galois Theory, Groups and Actions, Lebesgue Measure and Integration, Metric Spaces, Number Theory, Topology

Applied Mathematics and Mathematical Physics: Complex and Asymptotic Methods, Classical and Biological Fluid Dynamics, Dynamical Systems, Electromagnetism and Relativity, Fundamentals of Fluid Dynamics, Mathematical Ecology and Epidemiology, Modelling with MATLAB, Numerical Analysis, Partial Differential Equations, Quantum Information, Quantum Mechanics

Statistics and Mathematical Finance: Bayesian Statistics, Generalised Linear Models, Linear Optimisation and Game Theory, Mathematical Finance, Multivariate Analysis, Practical Data Science with R, Statistical Pattern Recognition, Stochastic Processes, Survival Analysis, Time Series
