Previous Code: SM3025.1

Available to students in other Western Sydney University Programs:  Yes.  Check that your program has the available credit points required to complete the subjects in this field of study. Any requisite requirements must also be met. Consult your Program Advisor for further advice.

Employers these days set a lot of store by mathematical skills, even for jobs that may not sound at all like “maths”, such as certain marketing jobs.  Having some background in mathematical thinking can make the difference between being stumped by a problem and seeing a solution.  No matter what your area of study is, this minor gives you the opportunity to use some of the elective space in your program to pick up additional skills that will be useful throughout your career.  Prospective teachers can tailor this minor to meet the NESA requirements for “Mathematics” as additional teaching area.
