What will I learn?

Gain a strong foundation in economic theories and principles, along with scientific theory and practical skills in your chosen science major, by combining these two areas of study in a dual degree.

Economics is more than just markets, models and capital. It’s the study of how people and organisations make decisions about using our scarce resources. When you combine the ability to question, analyse, model and predict human behaviour with the interdisciplinary knowledge and practical skills of scientific training, you'll graduate with a respected, desirable qualification.

When this program is studied at a standard load of 4 courses per semester, the final semester will comprise part-time study of only 2 courses. Students may decide to overload in previous semesters or undertake study in a summer semester to reduce the total duration of the program.

Career possibilities

Our programs prepare you for your first job and beyond. Depending on which major you choose, here are some of the careers you could be on your way to:

Historical archaeology consultant
Biopharmaceutical scientist
Production bioinformatics engineer
