    Your major structure

    This major can be completed through the Bachelor of Science.

    In your first and second years you will study prerequisite subjects for you major in physics and mathematics as well as other core and elective subjects.

    In your final year you will look at complex analysis and apply your skills to a range of tasks in research, teaching and management. You will complete 50 points (usually four subjects) of study that is deep and specialised in mathematical physics and you can also complete breadth studies

    Breadth Studies

    Breadth is a unique feature of the Melbourne Model. It gives you the chance to explore subjects outside of science, developing new perspectives and learning to collaborate with others who have different strengths and interests — just as you will in your future career.

    Some of our students use breadth to explore creative interests or topics they have always been curious about. Others used breadth to improve their career prospects by complementing their major with a language, communication skills or business expertise.
