More about the course
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. The degree is constructed in the belief that the parallel study of these related disciplines can significantly enhance your understanding of each.
The Philosophy Faculty is is one of the largest departments of philosophy in the world and widely recognized to be amongst the best. More than 500 undergraduates are admitted to Oxford each year to read the various degrees involving philosophy. The large number of students reading philosophy with a variety of other disciplines affords the opportunity to participate in a diverse and lively philosophical community.
