Maths & Computer Science: Natural partners, the study of mathematics is integral to, and complements, that of computer science. All computer scientists require a solid grounding in the use of mathematical tools, and mathematicians now often make use of computing tools for problem solving; this degree course allows further investigation into this overlap and mutual relevance. Example papers/topics can be found in the departmental prospectus.
Maths & Philosophy: Embracing the common interests of these two disciplines, you will cover core foundational topics in both subjects, and will then have many optional papers to choose from. The only required subjects in philosophy are Elements of Logic, General Philosophy, and Frege’s Foundations of Arithmetic, all studied in the first year. The only compulsory subject in years two and three is Foundations, which includes logic and set theory. The fourth year can be given over entirely to philosophy or entirely to mathematics, or continue with a mixture of both. Example papers/topics can be found in the departmental prospectus.
Maths & Statistics: Oxford’s Maths & Statistics course provides the chance to specialise in probability and statistics. Example papers/topics can be found in the departmental prospectus.
