Bachelor of Mathematics

Approved Abbreviation: BMath


Western Sydney University Course Code: 3778.1

AQF Level: 7

CRICOS Code: 103731H


Course Status: CURRENT
This version of the course is available to new and continuing students.


The Bachelor of Mathematics will commence in 2022.

The essence of mathematics is the use of abstraction and logic to discover, describe and completely and unambiguously understand systems. Mathematics is essential for modelling phenomena in many fields, including science, engineering, economics, finance, medicine, and politics. The fact that mathematicians are able to model, analyse and solve practical problems makes them highly sought after by employers. The Bachelor of Mathematics will give you a solid basis in key areas of mathematics. You also have the option of completing majors in Financial Mathematics, Data Science, or Computational Mathematics, or you can use the degree as a pathway to secondary teaching.

Study Mode
Three years full-time or six years part-time.
