Modules 2013/14

These pages show your course choice options for the 2013/14 academic year, in the Mathematics and Physics programme either as a BSc or as a MMath/MPhys.

Note that this information is for students on the new undergraduate course scheme only (2010 entry and later).

Please see also general information on course choices in the Mathematics Department and in the Department of Physics.

 

First Year

In the Mathematics Department, you take two 30 credit modules that run during the entire teaching year:

Altogether you obtain 60 credits in Mathematics.

In the Physics Department, you take

Altogether you obtain 60 credits in Physics.

 

Second Year

In the Mathematics Department you take one module in each term

Altogether you obtain 30 credits in Mathematics, and 90 credits of Physics modules. The modules you take in Physics are:

 

Final Year of BSc

You first need to decide whether you want to do your final year project in Mathematics BA/BSc final-year project MAT00004H (40 credits), or Physics.

All students take Physics modules in Quantum Physics II: Quantum Mechanics and Nuclear Physics (20 credits) and Thermodynamics and Statistical Physics (20 credits).

You then choose further modules subject to the following rules:

  • Students taking the project in Physics: you choose 40 credits of Maths modules from the list below, plus 10 credits of Physics modules from list B2 or B3, subject to a maximum of 5 modules in any one term
  • Students taking the project in Mathematics: you choose 30 credits of optional Maths modules from the list below, plus 10 credits of Physics modules from list B2 or B3, subject to a maximum of 5 modules in any one term
  • Students wishing to take a different distribution of optional credits will need permission from the Mathematics and Physics Board of Studies
  • Students are permitted to replace some modules with elective modules from other Departments, with the approval of the Mathematics and Physics Board of Studies

 

The optional Maths modules are:

 

 

 

In the Physics Department the optional modules are:

List B2

List B3

 

Third Year MPhys/MMath

All students take:

You then choose further optional modules subject to the following rules:

  • Students on the MPhys route: you take 30 credits of optional Mathematics modules from the list below, and 30 credits of optional Physics modules (10 credits from list B1, 10 credits from list B2, 10 credits from list B3), subject to a maximum of 5 modules in any one term
  • Students on the MMath route: you take 40 credits of optional Mathematics modules from the list below, plus 20 credits of optional Physics modules (10 credits from list B2, 10 credits from list B3), subject to a maximum of 5 modules in any one term
  • Students wishing to take a different distribution of optional credits may be allowed, but will need the permission of the Mathematics and Physics Board of Studies
  • Students are permitted to replace some modules with elective modules from other Departments, with the approval of the Mathematics and Physics Board of Studies

The optional Maths modules are:

 

 

 

The optional Physics modules are:

List B1

List B2

List B3

 

Final Year MPhys/MMath

Students studying for the MMath take the final year project BA/BSc final-year project MAT00004H (40 credits). Students studying for the MPhys do their project in Physics (60 credits).

You then choose further optional modules subject to the following rules:

  • You take a maximum of 5 modules in any one term
  • Students wishing to take a different distribution of optional credits my be allowed, but will need the permission of the Mathematics and Physics Board of Studies
  • Students may be permitted to replace some modules with elective modules from other Departments, or to take certain modules run by MSc programmes in Mathematics, but both of these options will need the approval of the Mathematics and Physics Board of Studies

All students choose 40 credits of optional Mathematics modules from

 

 

 

If you are studying for the MMath you also choose 40 credits of optional Physics modules. If you are studying for the MPhys you choose 20 credits of optional Physics modules from the list below:

Current module choices are are subject to change.
