What will I learn?

Key features

Supervised research project
Your honours year is an integral part of the degree. It involves a supervised research project and advanced coursework. You’ll conduct original scientific investigations and analysis while developing your critical and integrative thinking.

Flexible subject choices
You can choose from a wide range of electives to tailor your study to your interests. This degree is designed to be flexible enough to combine with a second degree from the Faculties of Arts, Design and Architecture (ADA), Engineering, Law or Business.

Work Integrated Learning (WIL) opportunities
At UNSW Science, we focus on delivering the optimal balance of theory and practical work to equip you with the skills and experience to fast-track your career. The SCIF3199 Science Work Placement course gives you the opportunity to gain practical work experience through an internship. Previous work placement students have interned with IT companies, start-ups, government departments and large biomedical and biotechnology companies. Along with new professional skills and connections, you’ll also gain course credit for your work placement.

Research internship course
The SCIF2041 Research Internship course gives you the opportunity to complete a short theoretical or experimental research project in a world-leading research team supervised by a member of academic staff. Internships may also involve a placement outside of UNSW, in the form of externally funded research programs.

Program structure

The advanced mathematics program differs from the Bachelor of Science with the inclusion of compulsory advanced mathematics coursework. This includes majors in applied mathematics, pure mathematics, quantitative risk and advanced statistics.

This degree starts with foundation courses to build your introductory skills, before progressing to advanced mathematics coursework and an honours-level research project. You’ll also study free electives from any faculty at UNSW and general education non-science courses to diversify your study and expand your knowledge base.

Future careers

The Bachelor of Science (Advanced Mathematics) (Honours) is designed to match local and global career opportunities, preparing you for the workplace. Mathematics and statistics graduates work in a huge variety of areas, wherever logical skill and analysis of quantitative data is needed to provide accurate and timely answers.
