Mathematics

Maths has been the catalyst for advances in science and technology and it continues to transform our modern world. From the coded inner workings of tech powerhouses like Snapchat and Google to the sophisticated mathematical modelling of the Earth’s atmosphere that detects climate change, those that understand maths understand how the world works.

Employers from every corner of industry need well-qualified mathematicians and statisticians, and a mathematics degree will elevate your earning potential and open up a wide choice of interesting and rewarding career paths. Surveys have shown that students with mathematics degrees earn more, on average, than those who have studied almost any other subject.

Besides offering enticing career prospects, mathematics is a fascinating and beautiful subject in itself. At Queen’s, we will nurture your love for mathematics in challenging and inspiring ways.
