Students gain a foundation in science and can design a degree to suit specific interests. They select a major and minor from a range of science and other discipline options. First-year courses include cell biology, chemistry, biodiversity and ecology, and science research methods. In years 2 and 3, studies can include advanced-level courses from a wide range of science areas. The option to undertake a science-based work placement or a special research project in final year delivers the edge that graduates need to launch their career or pursue postgraduate studies. The program is a strong base for employment, postgraduate research, or further studies in education, law or honours.
