Single Major


Bachelor of Mathematics

Apply the tools of modern statistics to inform data-driven decision making and solve real-world problems.

Examples include improving medical treatments through data-driven experimental design, or using meteorological and spatial data to assess drought conditions in local communities.

Learn and apply statistical techniques to analyse and interpret complex data, and transform it into meaningful insights.

We combine theory with practical experience to challenge your critical thinking, expand your analytical capabilities and develop your technical skills.

Statisticians and data analysts are in high demand across business, industry, research and government to forecast, analyse and solve a variety of complex issues.

Combine your chosen major with a minor in Bioinformatics, Computer Science or Physics.

Bioinformatics (minor)

Bioinformatics applies computational science to enhance the understanding of biology. You'll gain specialised knowledge in statistics, data management, computer programming, genomics, and molecular biology.

This expanding field offers opportunities to work in a diversity of scientific research organisations and within the biotechnology sector.

Computer Science (minor)

As a field, Computer Science encompasses everything from the design of hardware through to the development of algorithms and programming languages.  Learn and apply your computer programming skills to create or optimise programs, systems or applications which are used across multiple devices. 

Computer science is essential for information management, data analysis, predictive modelling, cyber security, artificial intelligence, gaming, e-commerce or communications.

Physics (minor)

Combine your scientific and mathematical knowledge with skills in computer programming and statistics to deepen your understanding of theories relating to fields such as quantum mechanics, biophotonics, astronomy or astrophysics. 

Or apply your knowledge to develop advanced materials, electronic and optical devices.

Your high-level technical, analytical and problem-solving skills will lead you to a wide range of rewarding opportunities in sectors such as education, finance, engineering, computing and management.
