Combining science with studies in arts, humanities or social sciences provides students with powerful communication and critical thinking skills coupled with a strong technological or scientific base. This double degree course offers over 60 study areas to select from. It will prepare students for life after study with a truly unique set of skills and experience. This course leads to two separate degrees: the Bachelor of Science, and the Bachelor of Arts. Students will gain all the benefits of each degree course and be fully equipped to pursue a career in either field separately or to combine the two in their chosen work. Job opportunities are extremely diverse and may include work in research institutes and industry fields related to technology, production, environment, agriculture, minerals and resources. These industries value employers with sound scientific knowledge and the ability to communicate strategies, policies and findings to the public.


At least one major sequence and one minor sequence in arts and a major sequence in science will be taken over 4 years. These 4 sequences must be in different areas of study. Students will also be required to complete at least one mathematics or statistics unit and the core communication in science unit for the science component.
