Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Data Science
Griffith University - Nathan

Course outline

In this double degree, you can embrace your passion for science and learn how to analyse, model, interpret and visualise data to develop forward-thinking solutions for contemporary practical challenges. You’ll gain a foundation knowledge across all areas of science, giving you the flexibility to decide what you’d like to focus on next, and gain specialised skills and practical knowledge for a professional career in the biological, clinical, chemical, physical or mathematical sciences. With a strong focus on hands-on learning, you’ll have access to our state-of-the-art testing labs and facilities and work on real and authentic projects. Throughout, you’ll be taught by some of Australia’s leading researchers, who are tackling the big issues of today. You’ll pair what you learn in the lab with the practicality of your data science degree, which includes all the legal and ethical issues associated with the ways society handles and protects its information.
