Graduate Diploma of Mathematics GDMA
Program focus
This program gives graduates from a nonmathematical area the opportunity to gain knowledge and skills in areas of mathematics that are relevant to their professional or industrial careers.
Study Mode Online Education, Distance Learning & External study modes available
Duration 1 year fulltime, 2 years parttime
Program aimsThe program aims to provide an opportunity for graduates in programs other than Mathematics to gain skills in key areas of mathematics that relate to the needs of their profession or industry.
Program objectivesSuccessful completion of the program will enable graduates to: acquire specific knowledge and skills in mathematics which are relevant to their disciplines and careers become better problem solvers and innovative thinkers and thus be able to contribute at a higher level to their professional environment understand the meaning and basis of fundamental mathematical ideas and techniques demonstrate the ability to model reallife scenarios in order to enable mathematical analysis demonstrate the ability to apply mathematics to the solution of problems in a variety of situations.
Program structureThe program consists of eight units of study. The courses studied will depend on the student's background in mathematics but at least five will be courses from the Mathematics and Statistics major of the Bachelor of Science. Students must complete any eight courses from the following table, provided that at least two Level 3 courses are completed and at least five courses are from the Mathematics and Statistics major of the Bachelor of Science.
