Mathematical Sciences at Durham offers a unique blend of high-quality teaching and research in Applied & Computational Mathematics, Mathematical & Theoretical Particle Physics, Pure Mathematics, Probability and Statistics. We pride ourselves on combining world-leading research with a dedication to the learning experience of our undergraduate and postgraduate students.
Our curriculum and degree structure is monitored and regularly updated to provide students with the best possible mathematical and general skills, equipping them for a rapidly changing professional environment. Our degree portfolio has recently been enriched to offer the possibility of a year in industry and a new route in statistics that will give interested students practical experience of problem solving in a commercial environment.
We offer a balanced honours degree programme which allows choice from a wide spectrum of pure mathematics, applied mathematics and statistics.
We currently offer three taught MSc degrees: Mathematical Sciences; Particles, Strings and Cosmology; and Scientific Computing and Data Analysis. Each of these offers a gateway to a variety of careers in the public and private sectors, and a natural pathway to a PhD.
Our new, purpose built home realises an imaginative design that provides an inspiring environment for mathematical research and scholarly activities of the highest standards.
