Mathematics Majors in Science (Program 3970 and Combined Degrees)

You can check the full rules for 3970 - Science in the UNSW Handbook.

The majors listed here are also the majors in combined degrees with Science. Note that normally other Science courses must be taken as well as Mathematics to meet combined degree rules.

The available majors in Mathematics and Statistics are:

Note: where two courses are listed, the second is the Higher version.
