The Mathematical Sciences Honours Major (BSc) (Honours) enables students to extend their knowledge of current academic research methodology in the fundamental and applied areas of mathematics and statistics. This will be demonstrated through studying specialised units and the conduct of a supervised research project and presentation of an honours dissertation.
This major sits within the Bachelor of Science (Science) (Honours) degree. To apply for this major, you will apply for the Bachelor of Science (Science) (Honours).
Please refer to the handbook for additional course overview information.
What you'll learn
- have demonstrated knowledge and understanding in Mathematical Sciences field of study, that is at a level that is informed by knowledge of the forefront of the Mathematical Sciences within a research context, GC1
- can apply their knowledge and understanding in a manner that indicates a professional approach to Mathematical Sciences, and have competencies demonstrated through devising and sustaining arguments (to both specialist and non-specialist audiences) and solving advanced problems within Mathematical Sciences, GC2
- understand the constructs of the scientific method and apply these principles in Mathematical Sciences by communicating new knowledge, including using digital technologies, GC3
- can gather and interpret relevant research data within Mathematical Sciences to inform judgements that include reflection on relevant social, scientific or ethical issues, including being aware of the diversity of international perspectives associated with Mathematical Sciences, and how these impact upon the practice of Mathematical Sciences, GC4
- understand the global and cultural issues within Mathematical Sciences and how these impact on the practice of their profession, GC5
- display a very high standard of professional behaviour, including effective time management, both independently and as a team member, GC6
