The natural home of both abstract thought and the laws of nature, mathematics is at once pure logic and creative art
Mathematics is the universal language of science, and a beautiful subject in itself. It is a discipline which also has important applications in industry and commerce, and well-qualified mathematicians and statisticians are in great demand, with a wide choice of careers, making Mathematics an excellent choice as a degree subject.

BSC IN THEORETICAL PHYSICS
This degree is similar to the joint degree in applied mathematics and physics, especially the first two years. After that it focuses on the theoretical physics modules in applied mathematics.
