This combined degree allows students to complete two Bachelor programs in five years of full-time study. The Bachelor of Laws qualifies graduates for admission to legal practice. It involves an innovative approach to legal education and scholarship. It provides a coherent, broad-based and interdisciplinary approach to the study of law in both its historical and contemporary settings. The Bachelor of Science allows students to choose a major in a scientific area of interest.

About Macquarie UniversityEstablished in Sydney in 1964, Macquarie University is a progressive voice among universities in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region. Created during a time of extraordinary social transformation to be a different kind of university, it was a bold experiment in higher education.
True to its founders' vision, the University has challenged the conventional thinking of academia through innovations in its campus set-up, curricula, interdisciplinary research, and engagement with industry and the wider community.
More than 38,000 students are enrolled annually across four faculties: Arts, Business and Economics, Human Sciences, and Science and Engineering. A fifth faculty, Medicine and Health Sciences, has just been established to fully use the country's first and only private hospital on a university campus: Macquarie University Hospital.
Over the years, the campus has become a magnet for companies - all local and global leaders in dynamic sectors including information technology and healthcare - which means greater access to career opportunities for its graduates.
The University is imbuing all of its undergraduate curricula with an emphasis on civic and professional participation. Its PACE (Professional and Community Engagement) program takes students into working and social environments that enrich their experiences and connections, and open their minds to engaging as active world citizens.
The Macquarie University campus in North Ryde is connected to the Sydney CBD by fast and efficient transport - 20 minutes by car and 30 minutes by train.

Life after Study
Astronomers study planets, stars, galaxies and other objects in the observable universe and use this information for theoretical and practical purposes.
Chemists study the physical and chemical properties of materials to determine their composition. They use this information to develop new materials and products, to devise more efficient processes for making materials and to increase scientific knowledge. Chemists should not be confused with pharmacists (see separate entry for Pharmacist).
Economists perform economic research and analysis, and develop and apply theories relating to the production and distribution of goods and services and people's spending behaviour. Economists advise and provide forecasts to governments and businesses on matters such as taxation levels, wages and prices, employment and unemployment, imports and exports, and interest and exchange rates. They investigate international or national economic situations, or particular features such as industries or regions.
Electricians install, maintain, repair, test and commission electrical and electronic equipment and systems for industrial, commercial and domestic purposes. Electricians may also work on electrical transmission and distribution equipment.
Environmental scientists measure and record features of the environment and study, assess and develop methods of controlling or minimising the harmful effects of human activity on the environment.
Geographic information systems officers design, develop and customise geographic information systems and provide technical and analytical support to address issues such as environmental management, exploration and mining, land ownership and titles, urban and regional planning, utilities and asset management, and demographic marketing.
Geologists study the nature, composition and structure of the earth to locate materials and minerals, and to increase scientific knowledge. They also advise on the extraction of minerals, as well as on environmental protection, the rehabilitation of land after mining and on civil engineering projects.
Lawyers provide advice, write documents and conduct negotiations on legal matters, and may represent clients in court and tribunal proceedings. They are described as solicitors or barristers, depending on the work they do.
Life scientists examine the anatomy, physiology and biochemistry of humans, animals, plants and other living organisms to better understand how living organisms function and interact with each other and the environment.
Mathematicians apply and develop mathematical principles to solve problems in all areas of the sciences, technology, social sciences, business, industry and commerce.
Meteorologists forecast the weather and study the atmosphere to improve the understanding of climate.
Physicists study the behaviour of the physical world at the most basic level and find practical ways to apply new knowledge gained from their research in areas of science and technology.
Physicists are usually identified within three broad roles:
- theoretical physicists, who develop theories or models of how particular aspects of the world work
- experimental physicists, who test these theories, determining their limits and suggesting new approaches to them
- applied physicists, who apply these findings in practical settings, such as within industry and through the introduction of new technology.
There is interaction between all three roles and physicists generally have skills in each of these areas.
