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 all areas of the sciences before specialising with your choice of major. You'll have the the flexibility to decide what interests you the most, so you can shape a career that you're passionate about in the biological, clinical, chemical, physical or mathematical 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.
Throughout your 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.
At the end of your third year, providing you are eligible, you can enter the Honours program, a year of study during which you'll undertake a major research project under the supervision of a member of our academic staff that could lead to a PhD and career in research.
Depending on your major, you'll be prepared for an array of science careers. You could be a microbiologist, pharmaceutical scientist, biochemist, chemist or biotechnologist, a statistician, mathematician or physicist, or, with further study, a science journalist, patent lawyer or science teacher.
Increasingly, employers are employing science graduates in areas that require research and analytical skills, including the application of mathematics and statistics in the finance sector.
