UCL (University College London)

Course Introduction

This MSci offers a comprehensive education in mathematics along with the opportunity to achieve proficiency in two or more modern languages from a choice of Arabic, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin, Spanish and possibly others. It offers an additional year of study on top of the Mathematics with Modern Languages BSc, during which students have the opportunity to specialise further by taking more advanced courses, and undertaking a major project. Graduates are equipped for careers that may take them to Europe or further afield.

Course Modules

Years 1 and 2: 6 courses are taken each year giving grounding in pure mathematics and mathematical methods, following the same courses as the single'subject mathematics students; in place of applied mathematics, students take 2 courses in European languages each year. Year 3: Range of options in both mathematics and language(s). Year 4: Major research project. Course does not currently involve a year's study in continental Europe; the Department is investigating this possibility for all students who are proficient in the appropriate language. 4 main European languages (French, German, Italian, Spanish) are available for study and all levels of competence can be catered for; it is sometimes possible to provide study in another European language and it is also possible to study a course leading to a qualification in TEFL.
