Why study a major mathematics or statistics?

Mathematics & Statistics empowers discovery through creative human thought, ranging from pure abstractions to real-world applications. Most careers need some sort of mathematical skill, especially those in Science and Engineering but even extending into Medicine and Law. Have you ever sat in a high school maths class and thought "What's the point?" Well at UNSW we aim to make maths more relevant and interesting and will supply you with the analytical skills necessary in the workforce. Compared to maths at school, university mathematics is more directed towards definite problems, both real-world and abstract ones. It also uses computers with the latest mathematical software, to extend the range of solvable problems well beyond what is possible with pencil and paper and calculators. As Australia’s largest and highest ranked school of mathematics & statistics, you will receive comprehensive coverage of modern mathematics, underpinned by leading teaching and research.
