Mathematics BSc (Hons)
The BSc (Hons) in Mathematics will teach you to understand complex patterns and structures, and develop the tools with which to analyse them. Whether these patterns relate to physical or biological phenomena or the structure of mathematics itself, the primary aim is to describe, categorise, and understand the processes involved.
Students of Mathematics will acquire the analytical techniques, clear logical thinking and deductive reasoning necessary to explore some of these fascinating areas of research.
Mathematics is studied up to Honours level in both the Faculty of Science (BSc) and the Faculty of Arts (MA). Students who have a background in the sciences or who wish to study Mathematics alongside science subjects at St Andrews should apply for the BSc. For those interested in studying Mathematics alongside arts subjects, the MA in Mathematics may be of interest.
Students interested in the BSc degree may also be interested in the Integrated Masters courses in Mathematics, Pure Mathematics or Applied Mathematics, which allows you to graduate with a Master in Mathematics.
