Information about Natural Sciences & Mathematics Degrees
Natural Sciences & Mathematics is a group of disciplines that focus on discovering, researching, and understanding the laws governing the natural world. People who choose to study Natural Sciences have a large number of subdisciplines to choose from, such as: Applied Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, Neuroscience, Physics, Statistics, and others.
These subdisciplines are categorised as either Life Sciences, including Ecology, Anatomy, and Botany; or Physical Sciences, such as Physics, Earth Sciences, Astronomy, or Chemistry.
During courses, you will focus on learning principles you can make use of in interdisciplinary contexts, which you can then apply in your research, analytical, or laboratory work. You will develop your problem-solving skills, as well as the ability to conduct experiments, synthesise information, and draw conclusions.
Most of the major discoveries that have changed our world were made by people passionate about exact sciences. For others, your work might be just a bunch of numbers, formulas or some principles that are hard to understand. But you know that your work is used in various fields, and many of the commodities we enjoy today (e.g. electricity, warmth, trading, shelter) wouldn’t be possible without science. The breakthroughs of the future will be made by people like you, and by studying Natural Sciences you can join the ranks of the most brilliant minds that changed the world with their genius.
A Bachelor's or Master's degree in Natural Sciences & Mathematics allows you to find work in interesting domains, such as Statistics, Game Theory, Cryptography, Finance, Economics, Philosophy, etc.Read more View all Distance Learning courses in Natural Sciences & Mathematics
