BSc (Hons) in Mathematical Sciences

The curriculum is designed with the objective of equipping the graduate with rigorous training needed for the new economy, and with the mindset for continual life-long learning in order to adapt to changes. Provision is made to ensure breadth in knowledge and competency in useful skills such as communication, while depth is ensured through the requirements for the major. For the Major in Mathematical Sciences, apart from analytical and reasoning skills, together with problem-solving skills, acquired through the learning of rigorous mathematical concepts, students will also be able to pick up computing skills, technical communication techniques, as well as have the opportunity to learn how mathematics is connected with other disciplines such as biology, computer science, economics and finance. Opportunities for deeper investigations in the subject are also provided for students who seek extra challenge through special Courses, supervised independent study and research projects.

  • Given the broadness of mathematical sciences, four distinct tracks – in...

    1) Pure Mathematics,
    2) Applied Mathematics,
    3) Statistics, and
    4) Business Analytics

    are offered within the Major in Mathematical Sciences, catering to students with different interests.

  • Major in Mathematical Sciences with Concentrations

  1. To satisfy major with concentration in Mathematics of Information and Communication, in addition to fulfilling the requirements of the Major in Mathematical Sciences (any track), students must pass all the 4 Courses in A2 Electives.
  2. To satisfy major with concentration in Computational Mathematics, in addition to fulfilling the requirements of the Major in Mathematical Sciences (any track), students must pass at least 4 Courses in ONE of the following groups: A1 or A3 Electives.

  • Major in Mathematical Sciences with Minor in Finance

Minor in Finance is offered to selected students based on performance and interviews. In addition to fulfilling the requirements of the Major in Mathematical Sciences (any track), students must pass at least 15 AU, including 2 compulsory courses and 2 elective courses selected from existing banking and finance courses offered by the Division of Banking and Finance at the Nanyang Business School.

BSc (Hons) in Mathematics and Economics

This is a new combined degree jointly offered by the Division of Mathematical Sciences in the School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences and the Economics Programme in the School of Social Sciences. Students will learn how mathematics is applied to model economic decisions, make economic forecasts; in general how mathematics is a powerful tool for modeling economic and financial market activities. The curriculum is designed with an emphasis on both depth and breath. The core Courses in Mathematics and Economics ensure a solid quantitative grounding in both disciplines while the electives provide students with a choice to concentrate in an area of interest, for example, in Applied Economics, Econometrics or Theoretical Economics. The programme also provides an excellent coverage of Mathematics, Statistics and Economics that are highly relevant to related disciplines such as Actuarial Science and Finance.

Double Major B.Sc. (Hons) in Mathematical Sciences and Economics

This is a new double major degree hosted by the Division of Mathematical Sciences of the School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences (SPMS) and the Division of Economics of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS). Students will learn how mathematics is applied to model economic decisions, make economic forecasts; in general, how mathematics is a powerful tool for modelling economic and financial market activities. The training that graduates of this degree acquire - a combination of critical economic analysis and strong mathematical and computational skills - a highly valued by employers in the financial services industry, business as well as the public sector. The degree is also ideal for those who plan to pursue a Master's degree in financial engineering, professional or graduate programmes in finance, economics, actuarial science or other related fields.
