    My degree is mathematical(ly) based/highly mathematical

    Hi,

    Background:
    Suppose I have a Cosmophysicsal science degree.
    Many people are not aware of this degree.
    The degree has a lot of mathematical modules/subjects.
    It like a maths degree instead of a physics degree.

    Question:
    Which sentence is correct?

    Sentence1:

    I have a Cosmophysicsal science degree. My degree is mathematically based.
    Sentence2:
    I have a Cosmophysicsal science degree. My degree is mathematical based.
    Sentence3:
    I have a Cosmophysicsal science degree. My degree is highly mathematical.

    Thanks

    Re: My degree is mathmatical(ly) based/highly mathmatical

    I would choose:

    I have a Cosmophysicsal science degree. My degree is mathmatically based.
    'mathematical based' is not correct.

    You can also say (which I prefer):
    I have a degree in Cosmophysical science, which is a highly mathematical field.

    It is the field/discipline which is mathematical, not the degree!

    not a teacher
