The Bachelor of Science offers a qualification grounded in the scientific pursuit of knowledge and understanding and delivered as a contemporary package that caters for the breadth of emerging careers in our rapidly changing world. A liberal and interdisciplinary approach to science education is coupled with flexible program streams that include the study of archaeological, environmental, biological and human sciences. In this way students can follow their interests while acquiring professionally relevant and transferrable knowledge and skills. At the centre of the program is a focus on the development of fundamental skills in systematic and reproducible investigation, data analysis, critical thinking, problem solving and effective communication. Across the program, theory and practice are integrated through the use of diverse learning settings, from the laboratory and field, to industry contexts. This preparation builds confidence, independence and self-directed learning which broadens opportunities for graduates in the private, government and not-for-profit sectors and opens pathways to postgraduate research.
