BSc in Physical Geography/Mathematics (Full Time)

Aberystwyth University

Bachelor Degree , Physical Geography

Course Description

This BSc in Physical Geography and Mathematics is a specialist degree in which you will spend half of your time studying science-based Geography and half of your time studying mathematics. This gives you a remarkable opportunity to investigate the processes which structure the natural world with the aid of mathematical analysis. You will do this on local and global scales, and you will look at the implications for human society that these powerful forces may threaten.

You will examine a range of subjects including environmental management, quaternary science, global ecology and earth surface environments, complemented with the development of your mathematical skills in areas such as algebra and calculus, differential equations or statistics.

You will be able to direct your study into specialist areas by choosing optional modules including River System Dynamics, Geomorphology, Geographical Information Systems and Remote Sensing, or Volcanic Activity. You will also be able to choose your mathematical focus between mechanics and statistics, choosing from modules such as Comparative Statistical Inference and Linear Modelling Techniques, or Partial Differential Equations and Hydrodynamics.

This course is based at our internationally-renowned Departments of Geography and Earth Sciences (DGES) and Mathematics. Our staff members specialise in particular branches of their disciplines and will be available for advice and guidance throughout your course, including as you prepare to write and present your substantial final dissertation.
