MATHEMATICAL COURSES

 If you know you'd like to study for a Mathematical Undergraduate Degree ...

BSc in Mathematical Science

The Bachelor of Mathematical Science is a 4-year honours degree programme that covers all aspects of Mathematics and its applications, giving students a solid foundation in the Mathematical Sciences. As students advance through the programme they will choose a specialism: Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Theoretical Physics, Financial Mathematics, Computer Science, or Statistics with Bioinformatics. Further information can be found here. (CAO code GY319)
 

BSc in Financial Mathematics and Economics

The Bachelor of Science in Financial Mathematics and Economics is a 4-year inter-college degree programme consisting of courses in Mathematics (includiing Actuarial Mathematics), Statistics (including Probability), Applied Mathematics, Economics and Computer Science, with particular emphasis on the interaction between Financial Mathematics and Economics. There is a high demand from financial institutions for well-qualified students with quantitative skills, and the expanding market seeks highly-numerate professionals. The Faculty and Institute of Actuaries recognises this programme, and graduates can be exempt from some of the professional Actuarial subjects: CT1 Financial Mathematics, CT3 Probability and Mathematical Statistics and CT7 Economics. There may be more exemptions in the future. (CAO code GY309

BSc in Mathematics and Education

The BA in Mathematics and Education is a 4-year, full-time honours degree programme which incorporates a teaching training qualification with teaching practice throughout the duration of the programme. Graduates of the programme will be excellent mathematicians and will be recognised by the Teaching Council of Ireland as qualified post-primary teachers of Mathematics and Applied Mathematics. The programme is run by the Mathematics and Education departments of NUI Galway. It has been created as a response to the growing need for excellent mathematics teachers in Irish post-primary schools. (CAO code GY109)

BSc in Computer Science and Information Technology

The BSc in Computer Science and Information Technology (CSIT) is run by the School of IT with substantial input from the School of Mathematics, Statistics and Applied Mathematics. The course covers the theory and practice of designing and developing computer systems, both hardware and software, as well as networking and telecommunications technologies. The programme uses electronic devices, such as computers and mobile phones, computer software and networks to store, process, transmit, retrieve and manipulate information. It has a flexible course structure, where students can choose to study a range of Next-Generation Technology areas including: Digital Media and Games, Enterprise Informatics, Energy Informatics, Computational Mathematics, Scientific Computing and Medical/ Bio-informatics. These core subjects provide a solid theoretical and applied background in Computer Science and Information Technology.

Students will undertake a five-month (April-August) work placement after their third year, either off- or on-campus. This Professional Experience Programme gives students an opportunity to work on projects relevant to their course of study and significantly improves their chances of obtaining employment after graduation.

If you think you'd like to study for a Mathematical Undergraduate Degree but want to keep your options open ...

The majority of students in the College of Science opt for the 4-year undenominated honours BSc degree. In their first year students choose four subjects from Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Computing, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Earth and Ocean science. Students typically retain two principal subjects in their second year. They pursue one subject in their third and fourth years.

Undenominated BSc specialising in Mathematics

Students take Mathematics as one of their first and second year subjects. They specialize in Mathematics in their third and fourth year. (CAO code GY301)

Undenominated BSc specialising in Applied Mathematics

Students take Applied Mathematics as one of their first and second year subjects. They specialize in Applied Mathematics in their third and fourth year. (CAO code GY301)

Undenominated BSc specialising in Mathematics and Computing

Students take Computing and Mathematics as one of their first and second year subjects. They specialize in Computing and Mathematics in their third and fourth year. (CAO code GY301)

 

If you'd like to study for a joint Undergraduate Degree in Mathematics and some other Arts subject ...

The Bachelor of Arts (BA) is a broad 3-year degree, offering a wide variety of subjects to choose from. Four subjects are taken in First Arts from the 21 subjects on offer. In Second Arts, two of the subjects chosen at First Arts are pursued and these two subjects are completed in Final Arts. An advantage of the wide choice available, and of having to take four subjects, is the opportunity to take new subjects and to make interesting combinations of familiar and new subjects.

BA in Mathematics and another Arts subject

Students take Mathematics as one of three subjects in their first year, and as one of two subjects in their second and third years. (CAO code GY101)

 

BA in Mathematical Studies and another Arts subject

Students take Mathematics as one of three subjects in their first year. They take Mathematical Studies as one of two subjects in their second and third years. (CAO code GY101)
