This course combines the quantitative problem solving of mathematics with the analytical and reflective thinking skills of philosophy.
Your mathematics study will focus on the areas of pure mathematics most connected to philosophical study, such as geometry, algebra, set theory and logic, which acts as a bridge between the two subjects. You will be able to choose from a range of philosophy units relating to the physical and social sciences.
In your first year you will take 80 credit points in mathematics including linear algebra, calculus, analysis and some extra pure mathematics, and 40 in philosophy in two mandatory introduction to philosophy units.
In year two, 60 credit points including realism and normativity are compulsory, while the third year allows you to choose a variety of units in both mathematics and philosophy. You will complete a philosophy project in your third year.

Bristol’s great if you don’t really fancy concrete and a bustling metropolis – it’s a city uni with leafy streets, loads of independent shops and an intimate, community vibe. The city is kind of expensive, but if you budget properly you can stretch your loan out to have a great time here. There are loads of things to do in town, with a hectic nightlife and a great dubstep/drum and bass scene! The Uni is amazing too, with great facilities (the free bus onto campus is very helpful), and amazing tutors who were really inspiring and helpful.
