    An Honours programme in Mathematics at the Undergraduate level is one of the most versatile degrees in terms of skills, knowledge-base and career options. The BA Honours in Mathematics at AUD will provide the opportunity to develop all the above abilities and at the same time greatly enhance computational skills. The flexible framework of the credit-based semester system at AUD provides a perfect opportunity to build a strong foundation in modern Mathematics as well as ability to explore other disciplines. The core courses in Mathematics will cover abstract algebra, real analysis, numerical analysis, probability and statistics, differential equations, linear optimization, number theory and cryptography.

    A wide variety of elective courses in Mathematics will cover topics like mathematical finance, actuarial mathematics, mathematics for computer sciences, discrete mathematics, advanced algebra, advanced analysis and mathematical modelling. Computational skills and programming skills will be taught through extensive practical classes. Tutorials, lab sessions, workshops and seminars are some of the pedagogical hallmarks of the programme.

    The Mathematics programme at AUD does not have a compulsory internship. However, students are encouraged to apply for internships that require a training in Mathematics in companies or in other reputed institutions. They are also encouraged to participate in summer schools and other programmes of mathematical nature. A strong project component will seek to augment their understanding of the discipline and its many applications. Some of the Mathematics courses may also have this component.

    The teaching method in AUD is interactive and learner centric. The pedagogy comprises lectures, tutorials, lab classes, field work, workshops and seminars.

    The School of Undergraduate Studies follows a mandatory attendance policy. Students are expected to attend all learning situations. The penalties for low attendance are applied in the form of ‘grade cuts’ based on a sliding scale of attendance shortfall.

    Assessment is continuous, with regular feedback. The aim of continuous assessment is to ensure that the work done during the semester carries more weight than a single end-semester examination.

    The medium of instruction at AUD is English. The university provides a range of support systems for English language education through its Centre for English Language Education. Mentoring is an important feature of all programmes in AUD.
