Specialise in Mathematics for your Bachelor of Arts at Massey
A Bachelor of Arts (Mathematics) opens up a world of opportunities. From ranges from securing sensitive communications using cryptography, to calculating the geostationary orbit of a satellite. Maths is a product of human ingenuity that allows our modern world to exist. With a BA (Mathematics) you’ll learn appropriate analytic and numerical methods for problem-solving that can be applied in a range of contexts and industries.
Get the skills you’ll need
Your mathematics major will help you develop a wide variety of skills and techniques, especially in calculus and algebra. You’ll learn to formulate, solve, restate and resolve problems, and interpret results. You’ll also build your knowledge of computational and simulation techniques on computers. You’ll learn to communicate and explain concepts effectively with non-mathematical colleagues. This is a crucial skill, as many careers will take you into a team environment.
Learn from the leaders
Studying the BA (Mathematics) at Massey will give you access to some of the world’s top mathematical minds. Massey lecturers and postgraduate students are researching areas such as:
modelling of geothermal processes
phylogenetics and evolutionary trees
optimal decompositions of information systems.
These projects show the generality, versatility and variety of problems offered to mathematically skilled scientists. Your BA (Mathematics) will help you build up the skills and techniques you’ll need to be part of projects like these.
A Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics is a good fit if you:
like to think through things logically and analytically
seek new solutions to problems.
