Course details
Course UCAS code: F341
Qualification type:
  • BSc (Hons), Full-time , Duration: 3 Years
Course Summary:
There is a profound connection between physics and mathematics. It is not simply that mathematics is a useful tool, but as put by Galileo Galilei: "The book of nature is written in the language of mathematics.” Consider, for example, Emmy Noether's ground-breaking theorem that symmetries lead to conservation laws. Our Mathematics and Physics BSc (Hons) course gives you the opportunity to learn and think as both physicist and mathematician, providing an appreciation of the world around us through a deeper understanding of both disciplines. During your studies you will gain a deep understanding of physical phenomena combined with the mathematical power necessary for solving a wide range of analytical and computational problems. In addition to the core physics programme you will take additional modules in pure and applied mathematics. This culminates in a dedicated mathematical physics project. At BSc level you will seek to appreciate the cutting edge of the discipline and at MPhys level you will be provided with opportunities to contribute original findings to the discipline itself.
Modules:
Year 1 Indicative areas studied include symmetry, conservation laws, least action, electromagnetism, relativity, supporting mathematics, plus additional mathematics modules that encourage mathematical thinking. Year 2 Indicative areas studied include quantum physics, condensed matter, statistical physics, and the physics of materials, plus additional mathematics modules chosen specifically for content that provides insight into mathematical thinking. Year 3 Indicative areas studied include advanced physics and mathematics modules (informed by departmental research – MPhys only) or a mathematical physics project (BSc only). A full list of indicative modules is available on the course page of our website.
Assessment Methods:
Depending on the nature of the material, some modules are assessed by a mixture of coursework and examination (for example 25% coursework and 75% examination), whilst other modules are assessed by 100% coursework or 100% by examination.
