The Education and Mathematics joint honours degree will enable students to specialise in both subjects, developing a range and mix of skills and knowledge which will enhance their future career prospects. The programme is intended for students who wish to explore fundamental and advanced concepts of Mathematics and consider a broad spectrum of education theory and practice.
Designed for both UK/EU and international students, our BSc (Hons) Education and Mathematics programme considers:
Education in a wide context, not just within formal primary and secondary school settings, but also Further/Higher Education, social services, local and national government, and education within the community.
The core topics that form the backbone of any mathematical degree – analysis and algebra.
In the analysis strand, students will learn about calculations in differential and integral calculus, building a deeper understanding of these techniques and their theoretical basis.
In the algebra strand, students will learn about the structures observed in various mathematical settings, developing skills in working in axiomatic frameworks, translating between different settings, and understanding the strengths and limitations of a given approach.
Across both strands, students will develop their ability to understand mathematical logic and communication, construct their own arguments, and convey their understanding and reasoning.
Consequently, graduates of Education and Mathematics will develop the skills and knowledge to design and evaluate education processes and programmes, an appreciation of mathematics in an educational context, and the knowledge to inform mathematics teaching practice and curriculum design..
Research Focused: Students will be equipped with a solid grounding in mathematics, as well as contemporary theories and conceptual models of education as applied to local, national and international practice
