Title: Jointly offered by

(JUPAS Code 5232)
Jointly offered by Departments of Mathematics and
  • Academic Aspirations
  • Provides students with solid training in
    fundamental theories in both mathematics
  • and economics.
  • Equips students with quantitative reasoning
    skills, conceptual understanding and the ability
    to effectively communicate in mathematics and in
    the language of
  • economics and social science.

  • Provides a program of study for students who seek
    the option of taking a quantitatively oriented
    job in financial industry or intend to pursue
    postgraduate study in applied mathematics,
    economics, or in a related area, like
    quantitative finance or
  • management science.

  • Why choose this degree program?
  • The program is advantageous to students who
    otherwise would take a single major in
    mathematics or economics.
  • Sequences of mathematics and economics courses
    are provided to equip students with a strong
    quantitative background in economics and related
    areas in management and finance.

  • Career Prospects
  • Ample career opportunities in the financial
    sector for university graduates that fully
    understand the use of mathematical and economic
    tools and those who are able to use the knowledge
    and language of both
  • disciplines.
  • Equipped with the necessary background for entry
    into postgraduate degree programs in applied
    mathematics and economics.

MATH 161 Mathematics in Civilization 3-0-03 ___
________ The purpose of this course is to expose
students to the role of mathematics in the
development and maintenance of civilization. 
This course examines how mathematics shaped and
was shaped by the course of human events.  The
course will cover the growth, development and
far-reaching applications of trigonometry,
navigation, cartography, logarithms, algebra, and
calculus through ancient, medieval,
post-Renaissance and modern times.  Topics
include Number systems and the invention of
positional notation, Egyptian arithmetic,
Babylonian algebra, Greek trigonometry,
the contribution of Chinese mathematics etc.

students are preferred.  The course introduces
students to some of the economic principles that
never have proven to be powerful tools for
analyzing real-world problems. A wide range of
the most pressing issues of our times will be
identified and discussed. The necessary framework
for analyzing them ill be developed. The course
is especially for the concerned non-business
citizen-student who wants to fulfill general
education requirements, No prior background in
economics is required.
