Bachelor of Science in Mathematical Sciences and Economics

Double major

A Double Major programme covering the applications of mathematics to economics and financial modeling.

A modern education in the Mathematical Sciences provides a superb foundation for the quantitative study of Economics, particularly in areas such as econometrics and financial economics.

In this interdisciplinary programme, run jointly by the School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences and the School of Social Sciences, students receive rigorous training in fundamental and applied mathematics, including topics such as algorithm analysis, statistics, and time series analysis, alongside economics topics such as microeconomics, macroeconomics, and econometrics.

The programme is ideal for students planning to pursue careers in the financial services industry, or entering professional or graduate programmes in finance, economics, actuarial science, and related fields.
