Bachelor of Mathematics

A Bachelor of Mathematics is an undergraduate academic degree awarded for successfully completing a program of study in mathematics or related disciplines, such as computer science or statistics. The Bachelor of Mathematics degree is frequently abbreviated as B.Math or BMath.


A BMath program generally lasts three years with a fourth "honours" year in China and Australia. BMath programs are increasingly taking about five years to complete because of coop or internship placements.

Difference between the BMath and BSc/BS or BA

In practice, this is essentially equivalent to a Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts degree with a speciality in mathematics. Relatively few institutions award Bachelor of Mathematics degrees, and the distinction between those that do and those that award B.Sc or B.A. degrees for mathematics is usually bureaucratic, rather than curriculum related. However, schools that offer Bachelor of Mathematics degrees argue for a separate degree, maintaining that the study of mathematics is vastly different from other fields.
