  • a qualification of NFQ level 7 where Mathematics was taken as a major subject for three years,

or

  • the Licentiateship of the IMA

or

  • any other such qualification that the Institute may deem equivalent

Advanced mathematical skills and the ability to apply mathematics to problems are extremely important modern graduate attributes.  This single-stage, add-on programme studies a range of modern topics in pure and applied mathematics at honours-degree level. The programme is suitable for anyone with an interest in mathematics or who wishes to develop their mathematical understanding from general or pass degree to honours-degree level.  Students study two modules each year and the programme requires the successful completion of four modules.  The modules are delivered in the evenings, making the programme attractive to those in full-time employment. The programme is ideal for career development and upskilling and graduates will have enhanced employment opportunities in industry, commerce and the public services.  Graduates are also eligible to proceed to postgraduate study or to research.

Learning Outcome

On successfully completing the BSc (Honours), the learner will:

  • have acquired a substantial range and depth of understanding of advanced concepts of Mathematical Methods and Topics in Analysis,
  • have a detailed knowledge of several specialized areas in Mathematics,
  • employ advanced mathematical skills to model and solve a range of mathematical problems.

(In addition, the School of Mathematical Sciences offers the opportunity to study any of the modules from this programme – and other programmes in the School – as individual Continuing Professional Development certificates.  For more information please contact maev.maguire@tudublin.ie)

Graduates of an honours degree in mathematics are extremely flexible and highly sought after by employers.  There is a very wide range of careers available for highly-skilled numerate graduates with mathematical, analytical and problem-solving skills. These are key skills and therefore graduates are able to enter whichever sectors of employment that are currently growing. Enhanced mathematical skills are important for professional development in many sectors, for example the ICT and the financial services sectors, and an honours degree can enable accelerated career progression.  

Graduates of this programme will be in a good position to advance their current careers or embark on high achieving careers in industry, commerce, the teaching and other professions, and the public sector.  Graduates are also eligible to proceed to graduate study and research in mathematical sciences and there are many opportunities in the School of Mathematical Sciences.

Year 1:

  • Mathematical Methods 2
  • Topics in Analysis

Year 2 consists of optional topics from an approved list
