What will I learn?
A Bachelor of Science provides the specialist knowledge you need to pursue focused scientific careers in areas such as astronomy, biology, geology, mathematics, zoology, spatial sciences and more. Broadly, it also provides an excellent foundation for many general graduate positions due to your ability to identify problems, gather evidence, and form and communicate your conclusions. You will be provided with opportunities to acquire knowledge, attitudes and skills in a range of physical, computational, mathematical, earth and life sciences, and be able to apply the scientific method through a range of disciplines. We will also equip you with the methods to apply those skills to the practical needs of industry, business and government.
The Bachelor of Science is one of the broadest degrees at University, giving you opportunities to focus on one area of study, or select several areas across both scientific and non-scientific disciplines. As a result, your career options are many and varied, located across the country or across the world, both indoors and outdoors, and in every industry on (and off!) the planet. If you ire not sure, don it worry! Many students start studying a science degree by following a passion, not knowing exactly where they will end up. During your studies you will meet other students, academics and visiting lecturers, and have the opportunity to network with people from all around the world, all of which contributes to building a picture of where your particular science degree could take you.
Career Opportunities with Science
While science career options are wide and varied, they typically fall into three main categories:
Specialist knowledge (e.g., geologist, marine biologist, IT systems developer).
Careers where a broad understanding of science is essential (e.g., science teacher, journalism, policy advisor).
Careers using generic skills obtained during your degree (e.g., public relations, business manager, marketing, government and local councils).
A Bachelor of Science normally takes three years to finish and requires the successful completion of 24 units. You select one major (eight units), one minor (four units), degree electives (four introductory units), student electives (six units) and breadth units (two units).
Chemistry is the study of chemical and physical properties of substances. The discipline provides training in analytical and industrial chemistry as well as areas of biological chemistry. It also provides a solid foundation for anyone needing chemistry to support specialist studies in other disciplines, such as biotechnology, biochemistry and microbiology.
