The B.Sc. programme is designed to provide students with an education that prepares them for careers as practicing mathematicians and/or statisticians. In order to accomplish this aim in the Hong Kong context, certain objectives have been incorporated into the curriculum as follows:
The optional concentrations provide great flexibility to students. Students can choose the programme without concentration, one or even two concentrations according to their interest and career goal. These concentrations are designed to deliver some more specific objectives.
Common Year 1 Science Core Courses:  16 units  
BIOL1005 Introduction to Biology  3 units  
CHEM1005 Introduction to Chemistry  3 units  
COMP1005 Essence of Computing  3 units  
MATH1025 Understanding Mathematics and Statistics  3 units  
PHYS1005 Introduction to Green Energy  3 units  
SCIE1005 Integrated Science Laboratory  1 unit  
After completing the first year, students in Science Faculty may select BSc in Mathematics and Statistics as their major if they receive (a) cGPA 2.0; and (b) Grade C in MATH1025 Understanding Mathematics and Statistics  
At most one of BIOL1005, CHEM1005 and PHYS1005 can be replaced by a 3unit Major elective course.  
Major Requirements for Graduation:

12 units of Major Electives, at least 3 units in Level 4, can be fulfilled with any MATH3XXX and MATH4XXX excluding MATH3495/3496/3497 Job practicum, MATH3095/3096 Summer Research and MATH3097 Programming with Mathematical Software^{#}. The GE capstone GCAP3005 or GCAP3017 can be doublecounted towards the major elective requirements, and the outstanding 3 units have to be made up by taking any 3unit lettergrade MATH1xxx or MATH2xxx courses. However, none of these two courses can be counted towards the concentration requirement. 
The additional graduation option of BSc (Hons) in Mathematics and Statistics with Concentration is available. The Department of Mathematics offers the following concentrations:
Students can make use of the Major Electives and Free Electives to pursue a concentration within the department by completing seven required courses (or 21 units).
For students pursuing one concentration, the allocation of the 128 units for graduation is as follows.

For students pursuing two concentrations, the allocation of the 128 units for graduation is as follows.

The lists of courses for the concentrations are as follows. Note that neither GCAP3005 nor GCAP3017 will be counted towards the concentration requirement.
