Without maths, interpreting the real world would not be possible. Mathematics is the language of science and underpins most technological advances that we rely on every day. Studying a Bachelor of Mathematics will give you essential skills and knowledge in logic, mathematical modelling, experimental design and data analysis.
The Bachelor of Mathematics will provide you with the essential skills and knowledge necessary to be a professional mathematician or statistician − including the ability to manipulate, analyse and interpret large amounts of data.
Mathematical research extends human capabilities by taking our innate skills and intuitions to higher levels. Maths enables modern society to make decisions, to operate more efficiently, to invent new technologies and to understand and modify the world around us.
Current research is inventing new ways of using existing mathematics as well as creating new mathematics for the future. In addition to your major, you will study topics such as:
Download a program plan for further details on what you will study.
These program plans are applicable to new students. Current students should refer to the program handbook to access the plan relevant to the year they commenced.
Mathematics and statistics graduates go everywhere and do everything. They find work in:
Mathematical skills are valuable wherever real world problems must be solved, including the areas of manufacturing and scheduling. The private sector needs statisticians in areas such as:
In addition, government agencies and research institutions employ statisticians to design, collect, analyse and interpret data.
When you study maths at UON, you will complement your theoretical studies with tutorials and laboratories that help you apply what you learn to practical situations.
Our two Advanced Collaborative Environment spaces are equipped with computers, cameras, projectors, microphones and SmartBoards to enable you to connect with other groups in real time without delays.
Additionally, Bachelor of Mathematics students can enrol in international study which offers you the opportunity to undertake an international placement to expand the theoretical knowledge and skills developed in this program and apply knowledge and skills in an external and international context.
High achieving students can also apply for our Merit Pathway program. Here you will participate in activities that enrich your learning and experiences. You will work on active research projects throughout your degree, be mentored by leading researchers and complete relevant seminars and workshops. Students can apply before starting uni or throughout their degree.
