Bachelor of Science - Global Challenges (Advanced) (Honours)

Monash University

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00008C

The Bachelor of Science Advanced - Global Challenges (Honours) includes all the elements of the Bachelor of Science, together with formal training in leadership and persuasive communication, and hands-on practice in transforming an idea into a business or social enterprise. Fundamental to the program is an in-depth exploration of the big issues of our time. You will explore approaches and pathways to potential solutions, and think deeply about the qualities underpinning effective leadership and how to implement change. In your final year, you will partner with an external organisation and tackle a problem of real world significance. The course includes an internship - either domestic or international - that provides an experience of the world of work.


This course includes all the requirements of the Bachelor of Science, with additional study that addresses the learning objectives relating to global challenges. The additional study commences in year one, develops throughout the course and culminates in a major project in the fourth year. The course is structured in four parts: science specified study, science listed major, free elective study and a substantial impact through science project.
