Taking a joint honours in Mathematics and Theoretical Physics at Lincoln allows students to explore the interplay between these two important disciplines, and the ways in which they co-exist and complement each other.
The degree aims to provide a broad education in mathematics. This includes pure and applied mathematics. This is alongside fundamental and applied physics, enabling students to develop the knowledge and problem-solving skills vital to modern science and technology.
This course is designed to provide a thorough foundation in analytical and numerical methods, practical scientific skills, and research techniques. It gives students the opportunity to develop a range of transferable skills, such as communication and problem solving.
The four-year MMath course is designed for those seeking to develop advanced mathematical skills. The first three years are common with the BSc (Hons) Mathematics and Physics degree, while the fourth year offers the opportunity to study more advanced topics in greater depth. This year also includes a significant industrial or academic project.
