Course Information

When you combine science and arts you'll develop the critical thinking and communication skills along with specialised skills and practical knowledge in the biological, clinical, chemical, physical and mathematical sciences. You'll have the freedom to tailor your degree around your interests in your foundation first year before gaining specialist knowledge and abilities - based on your chosen majors - throughout the remainder of your studies.

This degree sits within both the humanities and science departments, offering you a broad choice of majors from either study area. You'll gain specialised skills and practical knowledge in the biological, clinical, chemical, physical or mathematical sciences, paired with the creative thinking and perspective of your chosen arts major.

The result is a well-rounded, interdisciplinary degree that sets you up to start your career equipped with the skills and knowledge you need to tackle the problems of today.

Industry and expert connections

The Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Arts extensive list of majors means you'll almost certainly be able to specialise in a field you're passionate about. Depending on your major choices, you may be able to benefit from valuable industry-relevant experiences such as internships, study tours and other work-integrated learning opportunities. In your final year, you could also take part in a science capstone experience in research or fieldwork.
