Bachelor's Programme in Mathematics and Physics
180 ECTS credits - 3 years - Kristiansand
Admission to the programme requires three years of mathematics studies at the upper secondary school level.
Two years of physics and three years of mathematics at upper secondary school level.
The aim of the programme is to provide basic knowledge in mathematics, statistics and physics.
Arrangements for the recognition of prior learning are described in the information on the institution under "General arrangements for the recognition of prior learning (formal, informal and non-formal)".
For a description of the examination regulations, see the Examination Regulations of the University of Agder.
For information about the Norwegian grading system, see ECTS credits and grades. Specific information on grading for each course is found in the individual course descriptions.
The Examination Regulations of the University of Agder regulate the graduation requirements for each programme of study.
On successful completion of the programme, the student should be able to
- apply mathematical and statistical techniques commonly used in practice
- apply theory in physics and practical methods to describe phenomena in physics
- understand problems in mathematics and physics, obtain solutions and communicate the solutions to others
- give oral and written presentations in mathematics and physics to others
- apply software relevant for mathematics and physics
Instruction comprises lectures, computer lab work, work in small groups, and laboratory work. There are compulsory tasks and project work in all courses.
Assessment is based upon final written and oral examinations, and project report. There will be final examinations in all courses. Please see separate course descriptions for more information.
In parts of the second and the third year there are possibilities for studying abroad.
The Bachelor Programme in Mathematics and Physics
provides the academic foundation necessary for teaching
mathematics and physics at all school levels, from the lower
primary up to and including the upper secondary (university
entrance). The programme also qualifies graduates for jobs in
the industry as well as those focusing on research and
Having fulfilled the one-year teacher training programme, candidates are qualified to join the master programme in mathematics didactics at UiA and for further studies in mathematics and physics. The students will have the necessary background for studying subjects which make substantial use of mathematical techniques such as geological physics and mechanics and for programmes in economics, engineering and science.
Bachelor of Mathematics and Physics
Last semester can be offered in english.
