Master of Mathematical Sciences
Excel in mathematics
Mathematics is both a logical and creative pursuit. It drives human progress, with millions of industries around the world depending on mathematical scientists.
Our Master of Mathematical Sciences is an intensive degree designed for students with backgrounds in related study areas.
What will you do?
- Develop advanced research skills as you learn from award-winning academics in state-of-the-art facilities.
- Take your mathematical knowledge to an advanced level through a major of your choice.
Majors are available in:
- Applied Mathematics—use mathematical techniques to answer questions about the world around us. These answers might come in the form of insights, explanations, solutions or predictions.
- Pure Mathematics—study abstract theories built by logical deduction that underpin modern science and technology.
- Statistics—solve real-world problems through the collection, analysis and modelling of data.
Where could it take you?
Our maths graduates go on to all sorts of fascinating careers in technology-led industries. You could help build business start-ups as a data scientist or enter the growing field of gaming design and performance analysis. You might be an actuary, applying probability and statistics to insurance and banking. Perhaps you’ll take your research to the next level in academia.
