How to Structure Your Degree 

You can choose to structure your Bachelor of Science (Advanced Mathematics) (Honours) degree program as either a single degree or a double degree.   

Single Degree Structure 

When structured as a single degree, Advanced Mathematics (Honours) is made up of 24 courses plus an honours year taken over four years, if studying full-time.  

Double Degree Structure 

When structured as a double degree, Advanced Mathematics (Honours) is made up of 16 courses plus an honours year taken simultaneously with courses from your chosen ‘other’ degree.  

Students undertaking a double degree do not take General Education courses or Free Electives.

Choosing Your Courses 

TIP: When using the Handbook or the Degree Templates, always select the year you commenced studying Science at UNSW, and follow those rules throughout your degree.

Available Majors

Applied Mathematics studies  the development of Mathematics and models. This major is designed to help you apply mathematics for understanding scientific phenomena, for the solution of technical and industrial problems, and for use in the social, economic and management sciences.

Pure Mathematics is the study of the essential structures of mathematics which underpins most of the technological advances of this century. This major provides the insights and understanding required by those using mathematics, leading to mastery of the fundamental processes of mathematical science and the capacity for innovative applications in any area.

Advanced Statistics has been designed to ensure that graduates are well trained in three key areas: probability and stochastic processes, statistical inference and modelling, and modern statistical computing methods.

Following Your Degree Requirements  

All rules are outlined in the Handbook, and we encourage you to use this in conjunction with the Degree Templates to ensure you are selecting courses that count towards your degree.  If you’re approaching the end of your studies, you can request a progression check, and our staff will provide an outline of your remaining degree requirements 

Not Sure About Your Major?

You won’t need to make your major selections until the start of your Stage 2 courses.
This allows you time to gain a clearer understanding of the direction you’d like to focus your Advanced Mathematics study.
