The Bachelor of Science (Advanced Mathematics) (Honours) at UNSW is designed for high-achieving students who want to specialise in mathematics as a basis for the growing range of quantitative careers in the finance, environmental modelling and research sectors. The bachelor’s degree is structured around three major areas of mathematics - applied mathematics, pure mathematics and advanced statistics - created to take you on a deep dive into the complex world of mathematics.

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.

Following 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 two courses. This allows you time to gain a clearer understanding of the direction you’d like to focus your advanced mathematics study.
