Courses Overview

What will I learn?
Why study the Bachelor of Science with Honours at UNE?
Honours in Science is an intensive year-long program that enables students to research a topic they are passionate about. Students will have the opportunity to develop their own original project and conduct research under the guidance of a supervisor who is a specialist in the relevant field. This is the final year of undergraduate study for most students and provides an avenue into postgraduate study and improves career prospects. Students who complete an honours year can demonstrate to future employers that they have advanced science skills and the ability to manage and independently produce high quality work.
Programs are available in a wide range of areas in the Sciences and include Agronomy, Animal Science, Archaeology, Biochemistry, Botany, Chemistry, Computational Science, Ecology, Environmental Science, Genetics, Geography, Geoscience, Mathematics, Microbiology, Physics, Physiology, Psychology and Zoology.
The Bachelor of Science with Honours requires completion of a thesis and students also undertake a discipline based learning program, which is designed in consultation with the supervisor, comprising coursework/direct reading/seminar presentation.
