The dual four-year program provides students with a focused background in economic theories and principles, along with the in-depth knowledge of a mathematics degree. In the Economics component, available study areas include: business economics; economic policy; economic history; econometrics; environmental and resource economics; financial markets; labour economics; health economics; international trade and development; macroeconomics; and microeconomics.
In the Mathematics component you will choose to develop a comprehensive specialised knowledge in one field of mathematics or a high level of sophistication in the applications of mathematics. Modern computation, advances in scientific technology and the increasing production of data have all increased the scope for applications of mathematics well beyond the traditional areas of engineering and the physical sciences, to include fields such as finance, economics, information technology and molecular biology. There is increasing recognition that graduates with high-level quantitative and analytic skills will play a key role at the forefront of new developments in these and other fields.
