The Department of Mathematics

Studying maths at LSE has really highlighted the importance of the subject to me. This ranges from the calculus I use in my economics courses to the logical and analytical thought process valued by employers. I feel well supported in my studies by my class teachers, the Maths Support Centre and my peers.

Holly Tarleton, BSc Mathematics and Economics
