Master of Mathematical Sciences (Advanced)

ANU is ranked number one in Australia for mathematics teaching and research1. We offer our students small class sizes and access to some of the best mathematicians in Australia, currently including 15 fellows of the Australian Academy of Sciences, two fellows of the Royal Society, ten recipients of the Australian Mathematical Society Medal and three ARC Laureate Fellows. Our researchers have access to up-to-date computing facilities including the National Computational Infrastructure supercomputer.

The Master of Mathematical Sciences (Advanced) enables you to upgrade your expertise in the mathematical sciences, either as a route to further study of mathematical sciences, or to upgrade your quantitative skills in areas that are rapidly becoming more reliant on advanced techniques from the mathematical sciences, such as the biological and computational sciences.

You can take a variety of courses ranging from pure mathematics to mathematical modelling, computational mathematics and applications of mathematics, as well as courses in related disciplines such as statistics, computer science, financial mathematics and econometrics. The program can be tailored to your interests and needs as much as possible.

Past students have completed research projects in various branches of pure mathematics, as well as in applications including economics, epidemiology, financial mathematics and computational astrophysics.

Career opportunities

Examples of roles of our graduates include: Associate, Quantitative Applications Division at Macquarie Group; Lecturer, Sanata Dharma University (Indonesia); and Visiting Assistant Professor of Managerial Economics and Decision Sciences, Kellogg School of Management (USA). The program can also be a pathway to a PhD.
