Mathematics with Ocean and Climate Sciences (Hons) degree from University of Liverpool   is offered in collaboration between the Department of Mathematics in the School of Physical Sciences and the internationally renowned National Oceanography Centre in Liverpool, providing excellent preparation for careers in computer modelling in oceanography, meteorology or environmental monitoring.

You will acquire a broad knowledge of mathematics and the analytical and numerical techniques for solving problems, and the ability to apply those techniques with confidence. You will gain an understanding of how the climate system behaves, how the atmosphere and ocean transport heat, why jets and eddies emerge on a rotating planet, how tracers are transported and mixed, and how these processes affect the growth of phytoplankton.

Career prospects

There has never been a better time to study Ocean Sciences: to understand how the oceans are warming, where sea level is rising, how the oceans are taking up carbon from the atmosphere, and how these changes are affecting plankton and marine life. Our degree programmes are designed to provide you with the skills to tackle these global environmental challenges. The vast majority of our recent graduates gain employment within a degree-related field or continue further within education and research after graduation.
