Description
Study advanced mathematics and learn how to solve problems in the sciences, engineering, information technology, economics, and business.
The Bachelor of Mathematics is a threeyear program designed to develop advanced quantitative and analytical skills, so you can pursue a highachieving career in mathematics, or one of the many fields it has influenced.
Choose a specialised major in Applied Mathematics, Data Analytics and Operations Research, Mathematical Physics, Pure Mathematics, or Statistics. You may also select a minor in Bioinformatics, Computer Science, or Physics.
Hone your skills in areas that are increasingly in demand across a wide range of jobs. This includes advanced problem solving, logical thinking, conceptual ability, communication, data handling and interpretation, and research.
Work with exceptionally driven peers, and learn from some of Australia's leading mathematicians. You will forge lifelong connections, both personally and professionally, with people who share a common passion for mathematics.
The Bachelor of Mathematics provides quantitative training that will set you apart in the job market and allow you to excel in the mathematical aspects of a range of disciplines.
TEACHING STAFF
Our teachers are tops
UQ mathematicians have been recognised with some of Australia’s highest accolades. Our talented academics include four fellows of the Australian Academy of Sciences and eight ARC Future Fellows. The School of Mathematics and Physics is also home to three ARC Centres of Excellence.
STUDENTS
Meet likeminded students
Join the Mathematics Students Society (MSS) for weekly maths talks, games/film nights, or larger events such as lawn bowl evenings and soirees. The maths talks, in particular, are a great opportunity to learn how to present mathematics to an audience and your peers .
