The major sequence in mathematics is designed to provide you with a broad introduction to the study of traditional and contemporary mathematics. Highlights include introductions to cryptography, project management, networks, mathematical modelling, and finance. The major also covers the traditional areas required by those intending to become primary or secondary teachers, as teaching of mathematics from K-12 is a high demand field and the demand will grow in the future. The major sequence can act as a pathway to becoming a secondary-school maths teacher when combined with a tertiary teaching qualification.
A major in mathematics can lead to interesting careers in areas such as operations research, cryptography, finance and computing.
