About Bachelor of Science in Mathematics

The Bachelor of Science in  Mathematics is designed to prepare students for careers using mathematics, operations research, and statistics.

Mathematical sciences are part of nearly all aspects of everyday life the discipline has underpinned such beneficial modern capabilities as Internet search, medical imaging, computer animation, numerical weather predictions, and all types of digital communications. 

A degree in mathematics opens up a wide range of careers. Not only is mathematics central to science, technology, and finance-related fields, but the logical insight and skills gained from a mathematical education are also highly sought after in areas like law, business, and management.

Mathematics and Business

Having finished your degree program in Mathematics, many opportunities will be open to you for a career in the business sector, for example with an insurance company or a consultancy firm. During the degree program, you learn to think logically and to structure your reasoning. An analytical approach becomes second nature ? a skill that is highly welcome in the business world. After all, you are able to identify the structure of a large organization, separate the main issues from the side issues, and produce a model to predict how the organization will change as a result of internal and external influences.

Mathematics and Research

Once you have your Bachelor of Science in Mathematics degree, you qualify to carry out research at a university, a research institute or work as a research consultant.

Mathematics and Academia

There is a great demand for mathematicians to work as teachers in secondary education and tertiary institutions such as colleges and Universities.

By studying mathematics you will develop transferable skills such as creative problem-solving and logical reasoning, which are in great demand in a wide range of career sectors such as:

  • Teaching
  • Research
  • Engineering
  • Industry
  • Insurance
  • Management
  • Consultant
  • Analyst
  • Positions in the financial world
