Bachelor of Science

Flinders University

The Bachelor of Science degree provides an extensive range of options for students who want to discover where science can take them - and where they can take science. There is great flexibility in the program, allowing students to follow their interests without being confined by traditional discipline boundaries. The degree is designed to provide the strongest possible foundation for a science-based career. Graduates are equipped not just to find their first job in their chosen field, but to explore new options in later years as science - and their own interests - change and develop. Students do not need a science background to enrol in this degree. There are no prerequisites and introductory studies are offered where necessary.

Students choose to complete a major sequence and science electives as well as being able to undertake non science elective topics.
