Overview

Bachelor of Science in Mathematics

If you have a mind for science and you’re keen to keep your options open, then the BSc is the degree for you. With many undergraduate majors in a wide range of subject areas, the BSc will allow you to incorporate different areas of interest and expertise. 

As well as strongly emphasising transferable skills to improve your employment opportunities, this programme will expose you to cutting-edge technologies and provide a gateway to independent research. 

Throughout your undergraduate degree you’ll be taught by knowledgeable scientists, many of whom are major contributors in their field.

The Bachelor of Science (BSc) majoring in Mathematics

The Mathematics major offers a solid grounding in both pure and applied mathematics. You’ll study a range of concepts and theories, as well as analytical, computational and modelling tools that you can apply to areas as diverse as the biological sciences, information and physical sciences, economics, engineering and finance.

As a Mathematics student you’ll take compulsory core courses that will prepare you for higher courses in both pure and applied mathematics, and which will expose you to critical thinking and meta-mathematical thinking while offering you an authentic mathematical experience.

As part of your major you’ll complete the Mathematics capstone course, MATHS 399, where you’ll work with other students to explore the role of mathematicians in society and culture. Your project will give you the chance to develop your skills in communication, critical thinking, teaching and creative problem-solving.

You can choose whether to keep your Mathematics major general or to take one of the two pathways in Mathematics in order to focus your major:

  • Applied Mathematics: The study of mathematical methods that can be used to understand problems in a wide range of sciences, engineering, finance, and other industries.
  • Pure Mathematics: The study of abstract concepts, and the development of analytical, logical and creative thinking, and problem solving skills.
