# Mathematical Sciences

#### Course overview

In our increasingly technological world, the study of mathematics is vital to future developments and discoveries. A strong foundation in this area will enable you to apply logic and quantitative reasoning to a vast array of situations, changing the way you think about your surroundings and how things work.

The Master of Mathematical Sciences course is designed to give you thorough internationally competitive training in mathematics, allowing you to work in areas like science, finance, engineering, medicine or technology. It will also assist you if you wish to transition from undergraduate studies to research in mathematical sciences.

Students may specialise in a diverse range of subjects in applied or pure mathematics, financial mathematics, statistics, and data science.

Study may be taken either full-time or part-time. Students who have completed relevant prior learning at an equivalent level may be given up to 24 credit points advanced standing. The course is 96 credit points total, 24 of which is comprised of a research project and thesis supervised by faculty from the School of Mathematics and Statistics.

Undergraduate students from the University of Sydney wishing to undertake the Master of Mathematical Sciences are expected to have studied a major in either mathematics, statistics, financial mathematics and statistics, or data science as part of their undergraduate degree.
