Mathematics MA (Hons)
The MA (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 Faculty of Arts (MA) and the Faculty of Science (BSc). Students who have a background in the arts or who wish to study Mathematics alongside arts subjects at St Andrews should apply for the MA. For those interested in studying Mathematics alongside science subjects, the BSc in Mathematics may be of interest.
