Natural Sciences and Mathematics is a group of disciplines that focus on discovering, investigating and understanding the laws that govern the natural world. People who choose to study Natural Sciences have a large number of sub-disciplines to choose from, such as: Applied Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, Neuroscience, Physics, Statistics and others.
These sub-disciplines are classified as Life Sciences, including Ecology, Anatomy and Botany; or Physical Sciences, such as Physics, Earth Sciences, Astronomy or Chemistry.
During the courses, you will focus on learning principles that you can use 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 the exact sciences. For others, their work may be just a bunch of numbers, formulas or some principles that are difficult to understand. But you know that their work is used in many fields, and many of the commodities we enjoy today (e.g., electricity, heat, commerce, shelter) would not 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 brightest minds who changed the world with their ingenuity.
A bachelor’s or master’s degree in Natural Sciences and Mathematics allows you to find work in interesting domains, such as Statistics, Game Theory, Cryptography, Finance, Economics, Philosophy, etc.
