    The stress is on the first syllable, they are not schwa. Basically I think I've heard the first syllable with the vowel of book and with the vowel of cup. (I'm assuming you're not from Oop North.)

    Department of Psychological Masturbation and Monetary Scamming

    Anyway I normally just call it Dee-Pee-Em-Em-Es or Pure Department, depending on my mood.

    I think I've heard it as /dʊpməs/ and possibly /dʌpməs/ as well.
    So, "doopmas" and "dupmas"? I've never heard either of those. And I hope never to again...

    Ah but Irrelevance - there are two maths departments at Cambridge, as the general has described.
    When they ask you which department, just say "stats"?
    I think there's statslab too, to confuse things.
    Dammit. There has to be an easy way out of this.
    haha. no. :nah:

    most decentralised teaching system in the uk. i would call it organised chaos, but i think that is suggesting some kind of order is possible... what's worse is besides there being these departments and labs, teaching, lectures and seminars can also take place any of 30-or-so colleges throughout the city. :yep:

    but we love it.
