Honours in Mathematics


The Honours program in Mathematics is spread over 10 months from the beginning of February to the end of November. It is also possible to begin in the middle of the year and to enrol in the program on a part-time basis. Honours in mathematics involves coursework (50 per cent), a thesis (47 per cent), and seminar talks (3 per cent).

Proposals for combined Honours programs in mathematics and another subject (such as economics, computer science, philosophy, physics, statistics, or theoretical physics) will be considered in consultation with the area concerned and with the involvement of a suitable MSI co-supervisor.

Students interested in Honours in Mathematics should contact Dr Joan Licata prior to applying.
