Course Description

Science at Deakin is a flexible degree that allows you to explore a diverse range of science-related study areas before you choose to specialise in at least one area of interest as you progress through the course. The degree is about more than just laboratory work, and prepares you for a diverse range of real-life settings in which today's science graduates work. Majors are available in Animal Biology, Cell Biology, Chemistry, Chemistry and Materials Science, Environmental Science, Genomics, Geography, Human Biology, Mathematical Modelling, Natural History and Plant Biology.

Throughout the course you’ll gain experience through practical programs undertaken in modern teaching laboratories, complete a Community Science Project and have an opportunity to undertake an Industry-Based Learning placement, which will provide you with valuable work experience before you graduate.

Positive aspects - easily accessible material
Negative aspects - difficult to connect one on one with a lecture for clarification due to their busy schedules

My advice to future students is: Pick a course that you believe you'll enjoy, not a course that your parents want you to study
