Program Rules Course List

What do the different requirements mean?

  • Compulsory – all students must complete this course
  • Recommended – a course which complements the major, but can be substituted for an elective
  • Elective – an elective course from the course list, or as permitted by the program rules
  • Recommended Off-List Elective – a recommended course that is not listed on the BMath Course. Students enrolled in the BMath program can take #16 off-list electives (#8 of these must not be coded MATH/STAT). Students enrolled in a dual program, should check their dual program rules and requirements to ensure they can count off-list or Part D electives to their program.

What will I study?

UQ offers a wide range of courses in mathematics and its applications. In their first year, students study essential topics in calculus, linear algebra, discrete mathematics and differential equations. From second year students select from more specialised courses and can nominate to complete a major and / or a minor. Alternatively students can choose not to complete a major and instead choose courses from the breadth of math courses available. Students have a choice of the following majors:
