Course Description

Science asks questions about how the natural world works. It does so in a systematic, yet rigorously creative way based on inquiry and evidence for ideas. This approach has led to our current understanding of nature as being (in large part) systematic and predictable, and has underpinned major advances in human welfare. A Bachelor of Science will prepare you to take part in this process of enquiry, by both contributing to it and by using scientific knowledge to solve current problems. Students will learn core concepts and skills necessary for scientific inquiry: investigating the natural world, proposing and testing ideas by experimentation and observation; quantifying and modelling processes; communicating findings, thinking independently and critically. Students can enrol in a generalist Bachelor of Science or a Bachelor of Science in a specific discipline. Within each program students can select from a range of scientific disciplines to suit their interests, studying a core of basic science units to which other science units, and if desired, non-science units, can be added.
