What will I learn?

If you want to operate in today’s business environment and apply your scientific know-how and expertise, then this double degree, designed to be complete in four years, is the perfect launching pad. You will be guided to develop knowledge, conceptual understanding and analytical skills to prepare you for the modern business landscape. You will also gain scientific knowledge and skills and specialise in an area aligned with your interests.

Why study this program?

Combining skills and knowledge from the world of business with scientific knowledge and skills is an astute combination. Scientists need to be able to operate in commercial settings and business people need to know about the science behind their decisions and how it may impact on the world around us.

As part of the Bachelor of Commerce, you will have the opportunity to major in a variety of disciplines such as Accounting, Economics, Finance, Management, Marketing, Public Relations and Sport & Recreation Management. The wide choice of disciplines on offer allows you to customise your degree to suit your personal and professional interests and academic strengths.

As part of the Bachelor of Science you will study a set of core interdisciplinary Science courses including experimental design, maths, biology, chemistry and a Science internship. These courses provide the basis for strong skills in scientific investigation, including data collection and analysis, critical thinking, problem solving, teamwork, and effective communication. These skills are highly sort after by employers and applicable to many workplaces both within and outside of the field of Science.

Building on these core Science courses, you will deepen your study of Science by selecting a Science Stream that matches your interests: Biology & Environment, Environment & Heritage, Human & Medical Science, or Multidisciplinary Science. Each Stream ensures in-depth knowledge and skill development through practical hands-on experience in the classroom, the laboratory, and in the field.
