Take your mathematical knowledge to a higher level – the MMath is ideal preparation for a career involving research or high-level mathematical skills.


This challenging four-year course takes your study to Master’s level. This course is ideal if you are considering postgraduate study or a career involving high-level mathematical skills or research.


During the first two years you will follow a similar structure to the BSc. From the third year the MMath introduces a wider range of modules which explore more sophisticated methods of mathematical argument.


The MMath in Mathematics is housed in a brand-new facility, purpose-built to meet the learning, teaching and study needs of students from the Department. When you choose Maths you’ll be taught by a team of mathematicians with a passion for sharing the beauty of Mathematics and a wealth of experience in research across the spectrum of Pure and Applied Mathematics and Statistics. And with many of the teaching team actively involved at the forefront of research, the degree is designed to link learning to research in distinctive and creative ways.


The first year of the course begins with a broad-based introduction to Pure and Applied Mathematics, Statistics and Probability and provides a sound foundation for in-depth study in subsequent years. In the second and third years the structure offers more flexibility, enabling you to shape your degree around one specific area or continue developing your skills across a wide range of subjects.


During the final year the range of optional modules expands further, introducing more advanced concepts and theories. The degree culminates in a double-module project that gives you the opportunity to investigate a mathematical topic of interest in depth.


You can also apply to add a placement year or a year abroad to your degree, increasing the course from four years to five.


As well as developing you academically, a Durham University degree will equip you with a range of practical skills including critical thinking, an analytical approach and ability to reason with information, alongside experience in building relationships and leading teams.


A significant number of our students progress to higher level study following their degree. Some remain within their academic field of interest and pursue higher level research, notably at Durham University but also other prestigious institutions. Others take a different route and pursue postgraduate programmes or employment in areas from statistics and financial management to conservation and teaching.


Some of the high-profile employers our graduates have gone on to work for include Royal London, Deloitte, CERN, Morgan Stanley and Ocado.
