This major is focused on the intrinsic nature and fundamental properties of mathematics, and recognising its ubiquity, universality and beauty.

You'll develop high-level skills in critical, analytical and abstract thinking. The major will also provide you with frameworks for deeper understanding of other areas of mathematics, such as applied mathematics, mathematical physics and statistics.

You'll have the opportunity to acquire a solid grounding in the key areas of pure mathematics, as well opportunities to undertake focused study in advanced courses.
