Course content

This course has an essential core of pure mathematics linked with modules from applied mathematics, statistics, and operational research.

Our courses are taught in small, friendly, group learning environments with high levels of support from lecturers with a wealth of experience in mathematics, statistics, and education.

Studying Mathematics at Chichester:

  • offers a sound basis of knowledge, understanding and skills in the main areas of mathematics
  • encourages an understanding of abstract mathematical concepts, logical argument and deductive reasoning
  • gives you the opportunity to study some applications of mathematics, and to develop problem-solving skills using mathematical and statistical processes
  • has a strong emphasis on the individual student and is designed to maximise your educational journey and enhance your independent learning skills.

The facets and rigour developed by a student on a Mathematics degree at the University of Chichester can not only enable the student to become a Mathematics specialist but can allow them to apply the insight and techniques they have gained to a wide range of situations and areas outside of Mathematics. For this reason, Mathematics students are highly sort after, and have an extremely high level of employability within a wide variety of different fields.

Our facilities

Over the past few years, we’ve redeveloped both of our campuses so that you have the best facilities available for your degree. We pride ourselves on the quality of the learning environment we can offer our students.

At Bognor Regis campus there is an integrated approach to the provision of learning resources and support. 

We offer a substantial collection of books, journals and other materials to help you further your research.

A range of study areas for group and quiet study including Wi-Fi areas for laptop use are available, or you can use our open access PC and Mac areas. 

We use an electronic learning environment with an expanding portfolio of online library resources from anywhere at any time.  There are also purpose built classrooms for the teacher training courses, as well as lecture and seminar rooms. 

Our award winning Learning Resource Centre is at the heart of the campus.  It hosts a modern library service with areas for quiet and silent study on both floors. 

Also situated in the LRC is the Support and Information Zone, Costa Coffee and over 80 open access work stations. 

An equipment loans centre offers laptops, tablets and other electronic devices for short and long term loans.

Indicative modules

Mathematical methods and modelling 

This module builds on the material covered at A level and introduces some new fundamental areas of mathematics. Advanced Calculus will be introduced and developed and students will start the study of the applications of differentials. These techniques will be applied to a variety of contexts including optimisation problems.

Graph and Network Theory 

Graph and network theory provide techniques for analysing when additional, relevant information is provided, the interaction of different things. You will be introduced to a very abstract view of the world made up of nodes and the relationships between things, called edges. The applications of this topic are extremely broad. From computer science, engineering, biological eco-systems, to game-theory & social media analysis.

Data Analysis

Students are introduced to the study of modern practical statistics through real-world problems. Making sense of data is the major goal of statistics as a discipline. Deciding what data to collect and how best to do so in order to create a statistical model of the situation of interest is the main element of this module. The module will use computer-based statistical programmes to enhance learning.

Pure mathematics

Pure mathematics is the study of the basic concepts and structures that underlie mathematics. Its purpose is to search for a deeper understanding and an expanded knowledge of mathematics itself. This module is designed to introduce students to the concepts of pure mathematics and start them on a journey of research in mathematics.

Probability and random variables

This module develops the students understanding in the theory of probability, and is an essential partner to mathematical statistics and operations research. The emphasis of the module is the modelling of real situations, and the development of probability calculations motivated by statistical problems.

Number theory

Number theory is a vast and fascinating field of mathematics, consisting of the study of the properties of whole numbers. Primes numbers and related aspects are incredibly important in number theory, and this module will develop a student’s understanding of how they can be applied in modern world of cryptography to keep our most vital secrets secret.

Decision and Discrete Mathematics

This module affords the opportunity for students to begin to explore the more advanced topics of Discrete Mathematics. This area of mathematics, the study of finite systems, has become increasingly important as the computer age advances. The digital computer is a finite structure and many of its properties can be understood within the framework of finite mathematical systems.

International English Studies

Include International English Studies: 

Teaching and assessment

You will study advanced mathematics alongside research into the psychology of mathematical learning and development.

You will investigate the historical development of Mathematics and its place in a modern technological society

You will study in small class sizes which offer individual support.

Throughout your degree, modules are delivered in a variety of ways including:

  • Standard module: a single module over 1 semester (usually 15 credits) examples include Data analysis and Graph Theory
  • Double module: a 30-credit module lasting a complete academic year, an example of which would be the Mathematics Project
  • Workshops: workshop sessions are available on a variety of interesting mathematical topics
  • Tutorials: individual tutorials are offered on all modules, providing personal academic support from staff
