Honours Degree of Bachelor of Mathematical Sciences
Graduate with an extra career edge
Virtually every industry around the globe depends on mathematical scientists. They analyse and interpret patterns, predict and model outcomes, solve problems and drive progress.
Our Bachelor of Mathematical Sciences (Honours) Direct Entry prepares you to enter this near-limitless world of career possibility. It provides the same breadth and depth of learning as the foundation bachelor degree, but with the additional opportunity to advance directly into a research-focused fourth-year honours program.
What will you do?
Taking a major in Applied Mathematics, Pure Mathematics or Statistics, you will:
- learn from award-winning researchers and teachers in state-of-the-art facilities
- build fundamental statistical and mathematical knowledge
- hone your creativity, rigour, logical thinking, professionalism and research skills, including through a significant fourth-year independent research project
- delve into abstract theories underpinning modern science
- create, collect, analyse and model data.
You’ll need to maintain a GPA of 4.5 throughout your studies to retain your place; drop below this and you’ll need to transfer to the foundation Bachelor of Mathematical Sciences.
Direct entry into the fourth (honours) year will require completion of 12 units of Level III courses in Applied Mathematics, Pure Mathematics or Statistics, with a minimum GPA of 5.
Where could it take you?
Like graduates from our foundation mathematical sciences degree, you’ll emerge well equipped for all sorts of fascinating, high-tech careers. The additional honours year, however, will give you an undoubted employability edge, clearly signalling your superior problem-solving capability. You will also be perfectly placed to pursue further postgraduate research through a masters or PhD.
