B.Sc. (Hons) in Mathematics and Economics (to be ceased to offer from AY2018-19)
This is a Double Major degree jointly offered by the Division of Mathematical Sciences in the School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences and the Economics Programme, School of Social Sciences. Students will learn how mathematics is applied to model economic decisions and make economic forecasts; in general, students will learn 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 strong 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 foundation of Mathematics, Statistics and Economics that are highly relevant to related disciplines such as Actuarial Science and Finance.
