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. 

Student profile

View our student profile table to get an indication of the likely peer cohort for new students at Curtin University. This table provides data on students that commenced undergraduate study and passed the census date in the most relevant recent intake period for which data are available. It includes those admitted through all offer rounds and international students studying in Australia.

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

Advanced standing

At Curtin, we understand that everyone’s study journey has been different.

You may have already studied some of the units (subjects) listed in your Curtin course, or you may have work experience that matches the degree requirements.

If this applies to you, you can apply for credit for recognised learning (CRL), which means your previous study is recognised and matched against a similar unit in your intended Curtin course.

A successful CRL application exempts you from having to complete certain units within your course and means you could finish your degree in a shorter amount of time.

CRL is also known as recognition of prior learning, advanced standing and credit transfer.
