About

This Mathematics and Philosophy course offered at the University of Oxford brings together two of the most fundamental and widely-applicable intellectual skills. The combination provides a powerful background from which to proceed to graduate study in either mathematics or philosophy or to pursue a diverse range of careers.

Overview

Mathematical knowledge and the ability to use it is the most important means of tackling quantifiable problems, while philosophical training enhances the ability to analyse issues, question received assumptions and clearly articulate understanding.

Historically, there have been strong links between mathematics and philosophy; logic, an important branch of both subjects, provides a natural bridge between the two, as does the philosophy of mathematics. The Mathematics and Philosophy course offered at the University of Oxford is founded on the belief that the parallel study of these related disciplines can significantly enhance your understanding of each. 

Careers

Graduates secure positions in diverse areas such as software development, teaching, research, the public sector, including the Civil and Diplomatic Services and journalism, both in the UK and abroad. 

Katherine currently works for the Bodleian Libraries. She found that the logical problem-solving skills and attention to detail she gained from studying mathematics came in useful when tackling new technical challenges in her work and whilst she completed a second graduate degree. The experience of studying both subjects so intensely, and having to pick up and apply new knowledge quickly, gave her the confidence to work with new subject areas, including legal and medical research libraries.
