The M.A. in Mathematics is specifically designed to provide students with solid mathematical knowledge. Students acquire a much sought after qualification that can be applied to a wide variety of careers.
- Wide selection of taught modules incorporating many areas of mathematics.
- Exposure to state-of-the-art mathematical topics.
- Opportunity for independent study in an area or application of interest through a minor thesis under the guidance of an individual supervisor.
The MA contains two streams Mathematics or Applied and Computational Mathematics. Both streams offer an attractive alternative to the more standard 24-month pathway of the Higher Diploma followed by the MSc in Mathematical Sciences. On successful completion of the programme you will have the knowledge, experience and confidence to pursue a PhD in mathematics, or a related discipline, have attained an advanced and modern mathematical and computational training, developed excellent presentation skills and acquired a much soughtafter qualification that can be applied to a wide variety of careers in the quantitative, financial, and IT sectors.
