Outline

Curtin has strong links with industry and the business world. As a result of this close interaction, the units offered are designed to develop the practical skills needed to address real-world problems. A work experience program runs from second year onwards, exposing students to real applications of their mathematical studies, and introducing them to potential employers.

This course sits within the double degree combination of Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Arts, and also the Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Commerce. Applicants have the choice of which double degree combination they would like to study.

 Please refer to the handbook for additional course overview information.
