Objectives:
The Bachelor of Science BSC99) is a flexible degree program which allows students to follow one of the specialist streams offered, to undertake a double specialisation, or to combine studies in their chosen areas of science. The course aims to produce graduates with a wide knowledge of their chosen field of science, together with the ability to apply skills in scientific method and to access information efficiently. Areas of study available in the Bachelor of Science are: - - aquaculture (in conjunction with JCU) biology - biology of organisms (no new intake into that area as of 2002) - chemistry - chemistry/biochemistry - computer science - ecology and environmental biology - - environmental molecular biology (no new intake into that area as of 2002) exercise and sport science (in conjunction with JCU) - general science - geographic information - health studies - information technology - mathematics (in conjunction with CQU) - mathematics/computer science - physics (in conjunction with CQU) - spatial information systems Introductory units are available for those who choose to major in chemistry, mathematics or physics and who do not have the assumed Year 12 knowledge. These units can be counted towards the degree. Career options for science graduates are broad, and their skills are increasingly in demand in non-science areas. The Bachelor of Science can also be studied in combined degrees with Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Laws, Bachelor of Economics, Bachelor of Engineering or Bachelor of Teaching. Course articulation provisions Articulation with VET Certificate Courses: Students who have completed a relevant VET Certificate level IV (ASF 4) will be eligible for 40 credit points toward this award. In some instances, depending on the Certificate, specific credit may be given [eg. Certificate of Parks and Wildlife Management] Articulation with VET Diplomas/Advanced Diplomas: Students who have completed a relevant VET Diploma (ASF 5) or Advanced Diploma (ASF 6) will be eligible for 80 credit points toward this award. In some instances, depending on the discipline, specific credit may be given. Articulation with Higher Education Associate Diplomas/Associate Degrees/ Diplomas/Advanced Diplomas: Students who have completed a Higher Education Diploma, Associate Diploma or Advanced Diploma will be eligible for a minimum of 80 credit points of specified or unspecified credit, according to the discipline. More may be given where higher education units are taken as core or electives Articulation with Bachelor of Science, Honours: Students who have completed a three year Bachelor award from Charles Darwin University or any other Australian tertiary institution, with an average of credit or better in those third year units relevant to the Honours are eligible for admission to an honours degree (As per Common Rule 5.3) Articulation to higher courses 1 Graduates of the BSc with an average of credit or better in third year relevant to the Honours, are eligible for admission to an Honours degree. 2 The BSc articulates with several Graduate Certificates and Graduate Diplomas in related Science areas. The Bachelor of Science degree was re-accredited during 1998. Candidates who commenced the B.Sc. prior to 1999 will have the choice to continue under the old B.Sc. rules or to change to the new rules. Those who transfer from the existing rules to the new rules will receive full credit for work completed under the existing rules.
Entry Requirements:
This course is no longer available for admission. It is only open to existing students who have already been offered a place and completed one or more units of study. There is no assumed knowledge for the overall award. Introductory units are available for those who choose chemistry, mathematics or physics, and do not have an Assumed Year 12 knowledge. These units can be counted towards the BSC99 Students who do not have a background of mathematics are encouraged to include a mathematics unit in their B.Sc. program. Normal School Leaver entry requirements for BSC99: Entry to the programme will be met by: - successful completion of the Northern Territory Certificate of Education (Year 12) or equivalent Applicants who do not satisfy the normal entry requirements may be granted special admission if they: - Achieve a score of 145 in the Special Tertiary Entrance Test (STAT); - Have completed an Associate Diploma, or an Advanced Diploma in a relevant discipline; - Have completed the Tertiary Enabling Program (TEP98 or TEPE20); - Can provide the Dean or delegate with documentary evidence of experience or qualifications, that indicate that they will not be disadvantaged if they gain admission to the award. This recognition of prior learning may include courses provided by professional bodies, courses provided by industry or learning from work or other forms of practical experience; - Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander students may be considered for Special Admission through the Faculty of Indigenous Research Education (FIRE) assessment program. Admission to later years: Those who have passed units in other tertiary Bachelor awards or other Bachelor awards at Charles Darwin may be admitted to the award with advanced standing, subject to the following conditions: - They must not be currently under exclusion from CDU or another tertiary institution; - If they have completed another Bachelor award, they may be eligible for a maximum of 120 credit points towards this award; - If they have an incomplete award they may be eligible for a maximum of 160 credit points; - The Dean or delegate shall determine what credit shall be given, both specified and unspecified.

Course Structure


The information provided for this course was valid for the final year of enrolment. Students continuing in this course in 2007, 2008 or 2009 may find there have been some changes to the unit availability. Students should, in the first instance, refer to the recommended study plan in the newest version of this course to make their unit selection for 2009.

Every re-enrolling student will be able to complete their current course of study. As a continuing student you should always consider transferring to the newest course version to enable you to take advantage of new and exciting changes to university programs.


Award Overview

The "University Common Rules for Courses Leading to the Degree of Bachelor" specify the requirements for progression through the courses and the requisites for graduation.

The Bachelor of Science will also have the following Specific Rules.

To be eligible for the Bachelor of Science a candidate must successfully complete units to the value of 240 credit points.

The successfully completed units must include:

    * a choice of one or two Courses in Science, with each including between 80 and 100 credit points of science units (see Section 4.9);
    * at least 40 credit points at Level 300 with grade pass or better;
    * a maximum of 100 credit points of Level 100;
    * at least 20 credit points of Common Units (Please note that as of semester 1, 2001, NEW students to this course are required to enrol in one common unit from each of the following two (2) streams:


Stream A - Focus on Regional Studies
CUC101    North Australian Studies
CUC104     Northern Exposure
CUC105     Cultural Studies
Stream B - Focus on Academic Literacy Skills
CUC102     Reading and Writing: The World of Ideas
CUC103    thought and Communication

The remaining credit points may be chosen from Bachelor of Science units or from other Charles Darwin Bachelor degree programs.

Candidates must also:

    * complete all the required pre-requisite and co-requisite units required by Level 200 and 300 units
    * have no more than 30 credit points with grade PT, PC or PS.
    * complete no more than 20 credit points of project and independent study units


Where two Courses are chosen, both may include the same unit but the unit counts only once towards the completion of 240 credit points.

Where two science Courses are chosen it may be necessary to include #80 credit points at Level 300.

A candidate may not register for more than 40 credit points in a semester without the approval of the Dean of Science, Information Technology and Education, or delegate.

An approved unit from another University can be included/substituted as part of the course, with the approval of the Dean of Science, Information Technology and Education, or delegate.
