The Bachelor of Science is a flexible, three-year course that provides students with a broad-based Science education that can be customised to maximise future career opportunities. With a wide range of Science courses on offer, the course provides well-developed knowledge and specialised disciplinary skills in Archaeology, Biology, Environmental Science, Geography and Human Biology. A strong emphasis on research in both the laboratory and the field, ensures students will acquire the fundamental skills of scientific investigation such as data collection and analysis, critical thinking, problem solving and effective communication. The capstone internship course and final year research project foster confidence, independence and self-directed learning. The flexibility of the Bachelor of Science provides a unique learning experience because it allows students to complete a double major in Science or access a major from another degree, resulting in an interdisciplinary program.Bachelor of Arts graduates think critically, creatively and ethically to solve problems and are culturally and globally aware. They have research and communication skills and can work both autonomously and with others. Students develop core skills through in-depth study of at least one major discipline area, selected from the traditional humanities, social and behavioural sciences, and/or communications and media. In upper year levels, students may undertake specialised learning that complements their professional and/or personal interests. Internships enable students to apply knowledge and skills in the workplace and to hone work-ready aptitudes. Students can also take advantage of short and long-term international learning opportunities through the Experience the World and Study Abroad programs. Arts graduates are valued across a range of industries and workplaces, and are well-placed to make a life-long contribution to the intellectual, cultural and civic life of communities.
