What will I learn?

Overview

The advanced science degree differs from the Bachelor of Science with the inclusion of advanced-level courses and an honours year.

In addition to foundation subjects such as biology, chemistry, physics and maths, you have access to more than 26 advanced fields of science. During your studies, you'll develop the critical and analytical thinking needed for the successful completion of the research-based honours year.

The fine arts component will encourage you to explore a wide range of artistic processes, techniques and media through theory and practice. With two distinct majors available, you'll choose to focus on either studio practice or art theory. Both pathways feature professional practice, research skills and opportunities for elective study, meaning you'll be prepared for a diverse range of professional contexts.

Future careers

Studying science provides an education for life. You’ll develop transferable skills that can be applied to almost any industry. This degree will give you a strong foundation in logical, analytical and critical thinking, as well as skills in teamwork and communication. The Bachelor of Science is designed to match local and global career opportunities, preparing you for the workplace. Recent graduates work in business, industry and government across a plethora of fields.
