Mathematics is the study of universal patterns and structures and is the quantitative language of the world. It underpins information technology, computer science, engineering, and the physical sciences; and it plays an increasingly important role in the biological and medical sciences, economics, finance, environmental science, sociology and psychology. The Bachelor of Mathematical Sciences provides the tools to study these patterns and structures and along the way, you learn transferable skills in critical thinking, analysis, investigation and evidenced-based decision-making.
The Bachelor of Mathematical Sciences is a three degree that can be tailored to concentrate on theoretical mathematics or can extend to a range of applicable mathematical areas such as mathematical modelling, mathematical finance, mathematical economics, mathematical physics, and quantitative biology.
This program is a “named” degree so you do not need to nominate any majors or minors as the focus of your studies is inherent in the name. You will have the option of applying for an Honours year towards the end of your third year of study.
