About BSc Mathematics and Computer Science

This joint honours degree combines a rigorous training in mathematics with an understanding of computer science and its applications. Mathematics is the language of the sciences and is of core value in an advanced understanding of computer science. Computer science provides many of the key tools needed to solve the most important and pressing problems of the modern age. The degree is ideal for someone looking to apply themselves in fields as varied as high finance, cryptography, quantum computing, algorithm design and artificial intelligence.

In your first year you will study essential, core components of mathematics and computer science, giving you a rigorous foundation for future years. Subsequently, you will have the opportunity to tailor your mathematics and computer science options, so that you graduate with a balance of theoretical and practical skills that reflects your interests.
