About this course

This dual degree program allows students to combine studies in the unique and innovative Bachelor of Social Science program with a wide range of majors in the arts. For example, foreign language studies can be combined with a major in Development. The Bachelor of Social Science teaches students how to develop strategies to help find solutions to a range of social issues at the local, national and international level.

Demand is at an all-time high for trained mathematicians. Statistics, operations research and financial mathematics are the areas of mathematics most often used in industry and there has been a particular upsurge in the number of mathematicians employed in banking, finance, insurance and risk management. Graduates with a degree in any area of mathematics are respected for their excellent quantitative and problem- solving abilities and gain a wide range of rewarding positions in the public and private sectors. UQ offers a wide range of courses in mathematics and its applications. In first year, students study essential topics in calculus, linear algebra and differential equations. In later years, there is an emphasis new ideas in mathematics and include recent applications in coding and cryptology.
