Programme specification:

The programme will aim to:
- introduce students to the major branches of mathematics;
- meet the needs of students with varied mathematical backgrounds and with different aspirations within mathematics;
- enable the student to appreciate the coherence, logical structure, and broad applicability of mathematics;
- impart an awareness of the values of research and scholarship in mathematics;
- accustom students to the use of tools, including libraries and computers, that are available to mathematicians;
- provide a thorough training in the intellectual skills and advanced techniques of modern mathematics;
- develop the ability of students to abstract and generalize, to model various phenomena, and to interpret numerical data;
- enable future mathematicians to develop the skills associated with problem solving, rigorous argument and communication;
- educate new mathematicians to meet the needs of employers, including those in industry, finance, education and the public services;
- prepare some students for further study in some branch of mathematics.
