About the course
The dual four-year program provides students with a focused background in commerce, along with the in-depth knowledge of a mathematics degree. In the Commerce component, compulsory courses will build a solid foundation of business skills that you will apply to many decisions and issues in the contemporary business environment. Commerce majors are in accounting, business information systems and finance. In the Mathematics component you will 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. The field of mathematical physics focuses on the mathematical foundations of modern physical theories. It thus provides the mathematical understanding and tools underpinning a broad range of contemporary science including statistical mechanics, relativity and the quantum theory of many body systems. Students who undertake a major in mathematical physics will gain the mathematical background required to understand and describe nature at its most fundamental levels. The major will not only prepare students for research in mathematical physics and related disciplines, it will foster creativity and develop high-level skills in critical and analytical thinking, paramount in problem solving.
