Professor Brendan Murphy
Welcome to UCD School of Mathematics and Statistics. The School is the largest of its kind in Ireland. We offer more degrees in the Mathematical Sciences than anyone else in Ireland with a range of undergraduate degrees. We offer a range of BSc degrees through DN200 and DN230, BA degrees through DN500 and BSc Social Sciences through DN700. If you are interested in a career in teaching Maths and Science DN200 offers a new route to become a post-primary teacher in Maths and Science, which began in September 2013.
Masters Degrees available in the School include: MSc Actuarial Science, MSc Data and Computational Science, MA Mathematics, MSc Mathematics, MSc Mathematical Science, MSc Climate Change: Science and Impacts, MA Statistics and MSc Statistics.
We also provide PhD degrees in Mathematics, Statistics and Applied and Computational Mathematics.
In addition we offer the following Higher Diplomas and Graduate Diplomas which allow students with Bachelors degrees in cognate disciplines the opportunity to achieve a recognised qualification in the mathematical sciences: HDip Mathematical Science, HDip Statistics, HDip Mathematical Studies and Graduate Diploma Actuarial Science.
All of our academic staff are engaged in active research with a strong record of publications in international journals. Our staff have been very successful in obtaining funding from national and international agencies and from industry.
Graduates from our degree programmes have skills that are rare and in high demand. Even in the current economic climate all of our recent graduates are either in employment or further study. Our graduates do not necessarily all continue to become mathematicians or statisticians, instead they have a wide variety of career opportunities.
Thank you for your interest in our School.
