Postgraduate Diploma in Arts (Mathematics)
College of Arts, Social Sciences, & Celtic Studies
The one year taught masters in Mathematics is aimed at students with a strong degree in Honours Mathematics. It introduces advanced topics and concepts, preparing graduates for further doctoral studies. However, graduates are also in demand in the financial and semi-state sectors. The programme content is dynamic and research-led. Modules are designed to offer an insight into new and emerging areas of research mathematics.
The Graduate Diploma in Mathematics bridges the gap between four-year programmes with a substantial mathematical component, and those that are broader in focus or shorter in duration. It opens opportunities to taught and research Masters programmes, as well as the many career options open to Mathematics graduates.
The entry requirements are a distinction or commendation in a primary degree in Mathematics or Applied Mathematical Science at general degree level (NQAI Level 7), or an equivalent to be determined by the College.
1 year, full-time (MA & PDip)
Next start date: September 2014
ECTS weighting: 90 (MA) | 60 (PDip)
Average intake: 20
Closing date: 1 August 2014
MA: students take four modules per semester. Throughout the year, students work on a minor dissertation on a topic of current interest, during which they receive training in modern research techniques, as well as developing presentation and report-writing skills. The School offers a lively environment for studying a masters. There are several weekly research seminars on topics in various areas of mathematics. Students are also encouraged to participated in the workshops hosted by the School in the Árus de Brún Centre for Computational Algebra.
PDip: students take a broad range of courses in algebra, analysis, topology, numerical analysis, and statistics. in addition, each student completes a project, supervised by an academic member of staff.
