The Bachelor of Mathematics is a three-year program catering to high-achieving students seeking to develop a comprehensive specialised knowledge in a field of mathematics or a high level of sophistication in the applications of mathematics.
Mathematics is one of the most enduring fields of study and has consistently been proven as essential in an expanding number of disciplines and professions. Modern computation, advances in scientific technology and the increasing production of data have all increased the scope for applications of mathematics well beyond the traditional areas of engineering and the physical sciences, to include fields such as finance, economics, information technology and molecular biology.
There is increasing recognition that graduates with high-level quantitative and analytic skills will play a key role at the forefront of new developments in these and other fields. Demand is at an all-time high for trained mathematicians. Graduates with a degree in mathematics are respected for their excellent quantitative and problem-solving abilities and gain a wide range of rewarding positions in the public and private sectors.
The pure mathematics major develops foundations and theory in a broad range of mathematical fields. Students study mathematical concepts in terms of their intrinsic nature and fundamental properties, gaining an appreciation of the ubiquity, universality and beauty of mathematics.
Courses in the major develop high-level skills in critical, analytical and abstract thinking, and provide frameworks for deeper understanding of other areas of mathematics such as applied mathematics, mathematical physics and statistics. The major offers the opportunity to acquire a solid grounding in the key areas of pure mathematics, as well to undertake focused study in advanced courses. Our pure mathematics courses cover areas such as algebra, analysis, combinatorics, geometry, number theory and topology.
