Master of Science in Mathematical Sciences

Study Mathematical Sciences at ANU

Upgrade your expertise in mathematical sciences with a Master of Science in Mathematical Sciences from ANU. In this program you can study a variety of courses tailored to your own interests and needs, ranging from pure mathematics to mathematical modelling, computational mathematics and applications of mathematics to many research areas (such as biology, astronomy, physics and environmental sciences), to related disciplines such as statistics, computer science, and econometrics.

What you'll learn


Analyse Lebesgue Integration and Hilbert Spaces


Apply probability theory and matric computations


Use Algebraic Topology and Differential Geometry


Apply field extensions and Galois Theory


Reflect on computational mathematics and Stochastic Analysis


Confidently use Environmental Modelling and Integrated Assessment.


Reflect on Functional Analysis, Spectral theory and Applications


Design and deliver a science communication project

What it's like to study Mathematical Sciences

Why do our brand new facilities have old-school blackboards?

Our new cyber security building is draped in code. Here in this building straight out of The Matrix, among the best mathematical minds in the country, is a piece of technology found nowhere else on campus.

Where can maths take you? To Google and beyond

This is the rock-star career of Vijay Boyapati, alumnus of the ANU Mathematical Sciences Institute, and it all started at ANU.

Mathematical Sciences careers

Roles our graduates hold 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).

Areas such as biological sciences and computational science are also becoming increasingly reliant on advanced techniques from the mathematical sciences. The Master of Mathematical Science will equip you with quantitative skills applicable to these areas and more.
