Overview

Course Overview

Mathematics and Philosophy (Hons) degree offered at Lancaster University covers a wide range of topics from calculus, probability and statistics to logic, proofs and theorems. As well as developing your technical knowledge and mathematical skills, you will also enhance your data analysis, problem-solving and quantitative reasoning skills.

During this year, you will also receive an introduction to philosophy, which will provide you with insight into some of the central problems of the discipline and the theories produced in response to them, as well as technical concepts, vocabulary, and some of the techniques of reasoning and analysis associated with the discipline.

In the second year, you will further develop your knowledge in complex and real analysis, and abstract and linear algebra. These highly analytical topics will complement your study of philosophy, which will really begin to expand and develop this year. You will be able to choose from a range of philosophy modules, such as Epistemology, Metaphysics, Modern Political Thought, and Philosophy of Science. This will allow you to build a solid repertoire of philosophy knowledge and analytical skills, while gearing your studies towards your own interests and aspirations.

Career:

Our final year offers you the chance to choose from a wide range of specialist modules, allowing you to develop the programme further to suit your interests and guide you to a specific career pathway. These topics include: Combinatorics; Lebesgue Integration; and Representation Theory of Finite Groups, as well as exciting philosophy modules such as Aesthetics, Continental Philosophy, and Moral, Legal and Political Philosophy.
