Why choose this course
The influence of mathematics can be felt in almost every aspect of modern life, including finance, medical sciences, digital communications – even weather forecasting.
From geometry, analysis, partial differential equations and mathematical physics to fluid dynamics, meteorology and modelling in life sciences, our MSc in Mathematics offers you an extraordinary range of research opportunities, working to tackle the most crucial scientific questions of our age
What you will study
The taught modules and dissertation topics are closely aligned with the interests of the Department’s four research groups: Mathematics of Life and Social Sciences; Dynamical Systems and Partial Differential Equations; Fields, Strings and Geometry; and Fluids, Meteorology and Symmetry.
During the first two semesters, you will select a range of taught modules from an exciting, comprehensive list, followed by an extended research project conducted over the summer under the supervision of a member of the Department, culminating in the writing of a dissertation.
Careers and graduate prospects
Mathematics is not only central to science, technology and finance-related fields. The logical insight, analytical skills and intellectual discipline gained from a mathematical education are highly sought after in a broad range of other areas such as law, business and management. There is also a strong demand for new mathematics teachers to meet the ongoing shortage in schools.
As well as being designed to meet the needs of future employers, the MSc Mathematics at the University of Surrey also provides a solid foundation from which to pursue further research in mathematics or one of the many areas to which mathematical ideas and techniques are applied.
