Course Description

Mathematics is a powerful universal language used to describe situations in abstract terms. At the heart of manipulation with abstract mathematical objects are precision, logical thinking and reasoning skills. Studying and doing mathematics requires a high level of communication skills. Employers highly value these skills and the subsequent versatility of our graduates.

The Gaelic Studies aspect of the degree programme can be studied at beginner, intermediate or advanced level to suit.

Both the MA and BSc Mathematics degrees study the same core maths courses. The difference comes in the choices that students can make through their optional courses.

Assessment Methods

Students are assessed by any combination of three assessment methods:

  • Coursework such as essays and reports completed throughout the course.
  • Practical assessments of the skills and competencies they learn on the course.
  • Written examinations at the end of each course.

The exact mix of these methods differs between subject areas, years of study and individual courses.

Honours projects are typically assessed on the basis of a written dissertation.
