In today's world, mathematical and statistical methods comprise a large and indispensable set of tools in a wide variety of fields, but the toolkit required in different fields can be quite varied. With this in mind, the Department offers a wide variety of undergraduate programmes to suit the requirements of the various types of students at NUI Maynooth. Each has various options leading to a degree in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Statistics, or Mathematical Studies. Some are particularly intensive, and are only for people who are high achievers in higher Mathematics in the Leaving Certificate. Some of the others take a more leisurely approach and build up steam as they go along. Some of the programmes are primarily focused on preparing future researchers; others are aimed at those who will work in the area of applied mathematics or statistics, or will go on to become teachers.
Many of the graduates of all our programmes go on to jobs that are not primarily "Mathematical". The skills of self reliance, independent thinking, organisational ability, computer literacy and problem-solving that are developed in our students are useful in a wide range of occupations.
