This course provides students with specialist knowledge that can be applied in a range of employment areas such as business and finance, data science, environment, health, insurance and logistics.
The Master of Science (Mathematics) consists of two years of full-time study. Students entering with a bachelor degree in the same discipline will be eligible to apply to follow a 54-unit pathway.
The course has flexibility to allow you to choose topics that both complement and extend your undergraduate studies. It offers studies in all areas of the mathematical sciences, with an emphasis on modern applied mathematics. You can select studies in areas such as methods of applied mathematics, complex analysis, partial differential equations and statistical science.
The masters project is normally taken in the final two semesters and helps you develop research, communication and technical skills. An in-depth investigation of a particular area is completed under the guidance of a supervisor.
Applicants must normally hold an approved bachelor degree or equivalent in mathematics or statistics or a closely related discipline from an approved institution. Applicants with an approved degree that contains substantial mathematics or statistics (equivalent to at least first-year level mathematics topics at Flinders) are also eligible to apply.
The Master of Science is not available to students who hold an honours degree in the same discipline.
