Prospective Undergraduates

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).

It is a four-year direct honours programme leading to the degree of Double Major Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Mathematical Sciences and Economics.

Who This Degree is for

This degree is aimed at students with strong quantitative aptitude and keen interest in economics. As a Double Major programme, it retains the strengths of both the Mathematical Science programme and the Economics programme while developing an interdisciplinary focus that will educate graduates in a multi-skilled fashion.

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.
