  • Minors Explained

    Like a major, a minor is a grouping of courses with a specific discipline focus, totalling 8 units. Completing a minor is an attractive undertaking, as it allows you to complete a second specialisation in an area that may be of interest to you. Both the major and minor will be listed on your official academic transcript, however only the major will be displayed on your testamur (degree certificate).

    If interested, you should consider in advance your course of study, and be sure to fulfil the minor requirements, as detailed in Part D of the Bachelor of Mathematics course list

    In the Bachelor of Mathematics, minors can be completed in Bioinformatics, Computer Science or Physics.
    Please ensure you contact the Faculty of Science to have your minor declared on mySI-net, prior to your graduation.
