Bachelor of Advanced Science (Honours)

Choose from more than 30 different courses in mathematics and statistics to suit your interests and career goals.

A specialisation in mathematics will challenge and expand your problem-solving, logical thinking and conceptual ability. You'll gain quantitative and analytical skills, along with advanced skills in calculus, linear algebra, probability, discrete mathematics, mathematical analysis and modelling.

You’ll develop and apply your knowledge through practical experience, structured tutorials, specialised lectures and research.

In your final year, you’ll undertake your own independent research project under the guidance of an academic supervisor in combination with advanced coursework to further enhance your skills and challenge your aptitude.

Deepen your scientific expertise by combining your specialisation with a major or minors from a wide range of science disciplines. Or broaden your skill set even further by choosing from 46 minors in other study areas, including languages, communication, design and economics.

Our advanced mathematical training ensures you are expertly prepared for a broad range of opportunities in banking, finance, insurance, business, engineering, science, information technology and risk management.

A specialisation in mathematics also gives you a strong foundation to continue into a higher degree by research and excel in research positions within universities, government agencies and private companies.
