Joint Degrees in Natural Sciences

It is possible to study Computer Science as part of a joint degree with us. We offer a number of cominations including:

  • Computer Science and Mathematics

  • Computer Science and Business

  • Computer Science and Physics

For example, if you have an equally strong interest in both Mathematics and Computer Science you may wish to study Computer Science and Mathematics as a joint degree. This degree allows you to study modules with the abstract rigour of mathematics and to explore the application of mathematical reasoning in the analysis of computation.

Alternatively, a joint degree in Computer Science and Business may suit you if you are interested in not just cutting edge technologies, but also how they can be turned into world leading companies.

Finally, a joint degree in Computer Science and Physics can be a great combination, with Physics giving a greater insight into the fundamental working of transistors and processors, and Computer Science being widely used in Physics to simulate and study large scale physical systems, such as the early universe.

These three joint degrees are taught under the framework of the Natural Sciences degree programme, which also allows for more general combinations for example Computer Science, Mathematics and Physics.
