Mathematics underpins our way of life and our prosperity. Its importance ranges from fundamental developments enabling new technologies, to theories backing up scientific research to analysis of our physical and societal environments.
From governments to financial and research institutions, employers today are seeking people with advanced knowledge and skills in mathematics who are able to play a critical role in strategic and analytical decision-making and problem-solving.
The Monash Master of Mathematics is designed for graduates with a bachelor’s degree and a strong foundation in mathematics.
A combination of coursework and project work, this program will appeal to students who love mathematics and want to embark on a career in academia.
It is also suitable for people who seek to develop and deepen their knowledge and skills in mathematics, and develop the capacity to use them to tackle complex problems in a variety of situations.
The flexible coursework offering ensures students can create a program to suit their interests, from pure mathematics that develops the core theory, to statistics and applied and computational mathematics that extend this theory to bring practical solutions to real-world problems. Graduates of the program possess advanced knowledge and skills that make them employable in industry, or prepare them for doctoral studies.
