Courses Overview

What will I learn?
This course enables students to study towards science career options supported by the School of Environment and the School of Psychological and Clinical Sciences. This course offers flexibility and diversity with a focus on gaining professional experience, whether as a biologist, ecologist, spatial scientist, biomedical scientist, nutritionist, chemist or in other science fields. Field and laboratory experiences expose students to the distinctive environments and communities of northern Australia and the region, and their associated challenges in environmental management and public health, including Indigenous health. Students can study externally or internally and may choose to integrate studies from a variety of areas outside of traditional science disciplines into their science degree. A range of options for pathways to courses offered by Flinders University, James Cook University and Australian National University (ANU) are also available.
Graduates are equipped to demonstrate and apply an understanding of their chosen areas of science, including concepts, theories and principles to practice in real situations. Students also become effective problem-solvers able to think globally, apply logical and critical thinking, apply an understanding of scientific and technological factors, and consider issues from various cultural, economic and other societal perspectives. A Bachelor of Science from CDU opens up a wide range of career options in industry, government and the community sector.
