Course description

This joint-honours degree programme, representing a close and fruitful connection which has existed since the time of the ancient Greeks, explores both sides of the programme together with the interesting border region between the two. Both disciplines are given equal weight and each offers a wide range of options. In your final year you do a substantial Philosophy dissertation and  can choose to do a project on a mathematical topic, supervised by a member of staff.  The content of the programme is closely linked with that of the two individual single-honours degrees, and so transfer to either of these Schools is possible at the end of the first year.

Fees

Tuition fees for home/EU students commencing their studies in September 2019 will be approximately £9,250 per annum. Tuition fees for international students will be £23,000 per annum. For general information please see the undergraduate student finance pages.
