More about the course
In the first two years of the course, lectures are supplemented with two to three hours of in-college teaching per week, in tutorials and small group classes; third- and fourth-year teaching is via classes. Pure mathematics is taught by Kevin McGerty, an expert in abstract algebra, and Greg Berczi, who works in Geometry. Applied mathematics is taught by Sam Howison and Chris Breward, who work on problems with an interdisciplinary emphasis. The thriving Christ Church mathematics society brings together the whole mathematics community for lectures, student presentations and an annual dinner.
Employers like people with maths degrees. Mathematics opens the door to a huge range of careers, for example, further study and research in academia or industry, investment banking, web design, and teaching.

Mathematics and Statistics
New kinds of data are emerging all the time in science and industry requiring the expert knowledge and experience of statisticians to apply this data. The combination, of deep and mathematically well-grounded method building, and wide-ranging applied work with data, is what makes statistics a great subject.
Mathematics and Philosophy
Historically, there have been strong links between Mathematics and Philosophy; logic, an important branch of both subjects, provides a natural bridge between the two, as does the philosophy of mathematics.
