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.
