What will I learn?

Why study a Bachelor of Science?

Science is a way of life. Science graduates have diverse and interesting careers, but not all science graduates become scientists. You can use your degree as a springboard to any career where critical thinking, the ability to analyse and investigate new information, a commitment to lifelong learning and evidence-based decision making are valued.

You experience flexibility and choice from day one. Your options range from cutting-edge theoretical and applied science to new interdisciplinary fields. The Bachelor of Science is an internationally recognised qualification that you can tailor to suit your interests and talents. If you're uncertain about which area of science you like best, you can try a bit of everything and select your area of specialisation at second year.

You'll also gain a firm foundation in generic skills like quantitative literacy, data analysis, information literacy, problem solving, critical thinking, communication and presentation skills, and the capacity to work in teams.

Course structure

In your first year, along with studying a mathematics/statistics unit, you choose a range of subjects to ensure a breadth of science knowledge. Areas such as chemistry, biology, physics, mathematics and statistics, and geosciences sit alongside innovative subjects like Earth to cosmos, introductory astronomy, environmental biology, natural hazards and human vulnerability, psychology, and computer programming. Throughout the course, you can focus entirely on science or pursue complementary interests outside science with the free-elective component of the degree.
