Program Description

Master of Mathematical Sciences (Advanced) (MMS)

The Australian National University | Science

A single two-year graduate degree offered by the ANU College of Science


ANU is ranked number one in Australia for maths teaching and research*.

We offer our students small class sizes and access to some of the best mathematicians in Australia, currently including 15 fellows of the Australian Academy of Sciences, two fellows of the Royal Society, ten recipients of the Australian Mathematical Society Medal and three ARC Laureate Fellows. Our researchers have access to up-to-date computing facilities including the National Computational Infrastructure supercomputer. We fulfil both a national and international role as a “research institute” in the mathematical sciences, working cooperatively with the Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute (AMSI) and a number of international centres.

This degree is intended to enable students to upgrade their expertise in the mathematical sciences either as a route to further study of mathematical sciences or to upgrade their quantitative skills in areas such as the biological sciences and computational science that are rapidly becoming more reliant on advanced techniques from the mathematical sciences.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the skills and knowledge to:

  1. Explain the fundamental concepts of a chosen research topic and its role in modern mathematics and applied contexts;
  2. Systematically identify relevant theory and concepts, relate these to appropriate methodologies and evidence, and draw appropriate conclusions;
  3. Demonstrate capacity for mathematical reasoning through analyzing, proving and explaining concepts from the chosen research area;
  4. Engage in systematic discovery and critical review of appropriate and relevant information sources;
  5. Communicate research concepts and contexts clearly and effectively both in writing and orally.

Career Options

Graduates from ANU have been rated as Australia's most employable graduates and among the most sought after by employers worldwide. The latest Global Employability University Ranking, published by the Times Higher Education, rated ANU as Australia's top university for getting a job for the fourth year in a row.

Examples of roles of our graduates include Associate, Quantitative Applications Division at Macquarie Group; Lecturer, Sanata Dharma University (Indonesia); and Visiting Assistant Professor of Managerial Economics and Decision Sciences, Kellogg School of Management (USA). The program can also be a pathway to a PhD.
