Diploma of Applied Science/Bachelor of Science
Griffith University - Nathan

Course outline

The Diploma of Applied Science is a pathway program designed to help you transition into the Bachelor of Science. You’ll develop foundational knowledge and skills in a supportive learning environment, setting you up for success in your further studies. Science is at the heart of every facet of life. It is a fascinating career choice, with research and development at its core. In this degree you’ll study foundational concepts relevant to the chemical, biological and environmental sciences. You’ll have the flexibility to decide what interests you the most, so you can shape a career that you’re passionate about in the environmental, biological or chemical sciences. You’ll have access to experts from renowned research centres who are focused on solving the big problems that face us today. They’re developing new drugs to combat cancer and infectious diseases, new sources of energy to power our society, and new ways to manage our waterways and improve food production. If you continue this pathway into the Bachelor degree, you will have the chance to participate in practical, hands-on learning opportunities, including internships, industry placements, national and international field trips and leading research projects.
