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 (Advanced) will allow you to build on your previous knowledge in logic, mathematical modelling, experimental design and data analysis.
Study the Bachelor of Mathematics (Advanced) to prepare yourself for an exciting career far beyond the norm and potentially outside the conventional roles of a mathematician. Enhancing your learning with industry experience, you’ll build professional connections which will increase your career outcomes. You can work in a wide range of fields including communications, international finance and the futures market, the mining and energy sectors, or even medical and health research.
Mathematical research extends human capabilities by taking our innate skills and intuitions to higher levels. The study of maths enables modern society to make decisions, to operate more efficiently, to invent new technologies and to understand and modify the world around us.
As part of the Bachelor of Mathematics (Advanced) program, you will receive close mentoring from leading academics to guide you through the advanced course materials. To prepare you for engagement with the wider scientific community, you’ll have the opportunity to attend seminars, present research and build a diverse network of professional relationships.
Current research is inventing new ways of using existing mathematics as well as creating new mathematics for the future. As part of your structured mathematics major, you will study courses in topic areas such as:

Some typical roles include:
When you study maths at the University of Newcastle, 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.
Work integrated learning opportunities may also become available through cross-institutional collaboration or our industry partnerships.
Additionally, Bachelor of Mathematics (Advanced) 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.
