New Maths with Philosophy degree accredited by IMA

IMAThe School of Mathematics and Physics is delighted to announce that our new BSc (Hons) degree programme in Mathematics with Philosophy has been granted accreditation by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications. This degree provides students with the opportunity to develop a large skill set in pure and applied mathematics while developing a philosophical understanding of the world we live in and the place we occupy within it. The accreditation ensures that this programme meets the educational requirements of the Chartered Mathematician designation, awarded by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, when it is followed by subsequent training and experience in employment to obtain equivalent competences to those specified by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for taught master’s degrees. 

We are very grateful to our external assessor, Professor John S. Wilson, University of Oxford, for his very positive feedback and his support to further develop the programme. Here is what he had to say:

The proposed new degree programme in Mathematics and Philosophy is a very positive development. The course has been carefully crafted to take advantage of the diverse and impressive skills of the teaching staff. Students will enjoy the course and will appreciate the many interesting career possibilities that it opens up.

We are looking forward to meeting our new Mathematics with Philosophy students in September 2018. If you are interested and would like to know more about our programmes, please visit our website.
