Trimester 1 and Trimester 2
If you receive an OP 1-6 or equivalent and meet subject prerequisites, you are guaranteed a place in this program.
In this degree, you'll expand your interest in both science and arts by exploring the links between the two study areas through your choice of majors. In your final year, you can complete a 'capstone' experience engaging with university research, undertaking an extended fieldwork program or completing an industry placement.
As a graduate, you'll be skilled in scientific methods with a broad knowledge set leading to opportunities in science research, communication and decision making.
This program is offered full-time and part-time on-campus at the Nathan and Gold Coast campuses.
To be classed as a full-time student, you are required to enrol in a minimum number of credit points each standard study period. The minimum credit points for full-time enrolment in this program is 30 credit points.
Trimester 1 and Trimester 2 are deemed standard study periods. As Trimester 3 is a non-standard study period, continuing students moving from one year to the next will not be required to study during this trimester to be eligible for student income support.
Domestic students who commence in Trimester 3 may be eligible for student income support from the onset of study provided they are enrolled full-time in this study period.
Please refer to the Australian Government website for more details.
With combined qualifications in science and arts, you'll find broad employment opportunities across the science and technology, commercial and public sectors.
Depending on your Science major, you will be prepared for work in environment-related jobs, for example as an environment consultant, environmental scientist or mine environment officer; in biological, chemical and clinical sciences as a microbiologist, pharmaceutical scientist, biochemist, chemist or biotechnologist; in physics and maths as a mathematician or physicist; or, with further study, in a broader role, for example as a patents officer or science teacher. You may also choose to undertake a fourth-year research Honours degree that can lead to a PhD and a career in research.
As a graduate of our Bachelor of Arts, you will have flexible, broad-based skills in writing, analysis and synthesis of information, research and policymaking. With these transferable skills, you will be able to shift easily from one occupation or industry to another.
Arts majors include:
As a graduate of the Bachelor of Science, you will (depending upon your major) be eligible for membership of the following professional bodies:
