Bachelor's Degree in MORSE
Apply your maths skills to the social sciences, and help solve complex problems. Combine mathematics, statistics, operational research and economics, and learn how to use them in varied contexts. You'll learn how to use statistical and mathematical models and gain the analytical and quantitative skills that employers look for.
Mathematics, Operational Research, Statistics and Economics (MORSE) is a broad, business-oriented mathematics degree. It's ideal if you're thinking of a career as a professional mathematician, researcher, statistician or economist.
Our 3-year program will give you a foundation in the main areas of mathematics, such as:
- differential equations
Operational research modules will show you how to use maths to model and solve practical problems. Statistics modules explain how to analyse uncertain data.
Within economics you’ll learn how to create models of the complex interactions in an economic system.
This course will develop your abilities in:
- logical argument
- deductive reasoning
As part of this course you can:
- choose from a range of optional modules to follow your interests
- discover a range of mathematical techniques, such as graphical networks, cost models, decision processes and statistical modelling
- solve real-world problems using mathematics and other skills
- use our student centre, a dedicated learning and social space for maths students
- explore mathematical and computational packages such as Python and the statistics package 'R'
We'll teach you through a combination of lectures and workshops. Our staff are leading researchers in fields like game theory, healthcare modelling and experiment design.
