Mathematical Sciences - MASt

This course will enable you to broaden your mathematical knowledge and provides the ideal preparation for further academic research.

The course offers a wide choice of advanced modules, with options in physics and statistics as well as mathematics. Warwick’s reputation for research attracts academics with a passion for their subject and many of these academics will be actively involved in teaching you, giving you access to the most up-to-date subject knowledge. You will take an active part in your own learning, working on your own research project under the direction of a lecturer.

The high level skills that you will gain from this MASt mean that the course provides a strong foundation for a research degree.

There are no Core modules in this programme.

Optional Modules:
This programme has optional modules to choose from to allow you to achieve the required credits to successfully complete the award. At a research led institution, optional module lists are subject to change each year to keep the student learning experience current and up-to-date. For the optional modules available in this department please visit the department website.

* The modules mentioned above may be subject to change. Please read our terms and conditions for more detailed information.

Teaching:
The Master of Advanced Study course is taught by academics with a strong interest in the modules that they lecture and the projects that they supervise. The course is therefore both challenging and rewarding and expected to produce highly-qualified graduates. For example, existing MMath graduates (whose final year is essentially the same as the MASt) are highly sought after with many continuing to academia or business, commerce, and industry.

Assessment:
The taught element of the course comprises 6 modules (15 credits each) which can be taken from a wide range of options. These must be fourth year modules (MA4 or equivalent). Students are also required to do a research project (30 credits) worth 25% of the final mark.
