  • Objectives
    Designed for students with a strong interest in the living world. Focuses on cellular and molecular biology, genetics and evolution, zoology, botany, ecology and environmental science. Students also enrol in a Second Major of their choice. Disciplines offered include: Conservation Biology, Environmental Chemistry, Environmental Management, Catchment Management and Marine & Freshwater Management.
  • Entry requirements
    Minimum admission requirements apply to enter this course.
  • Academic Title
    Bachelor of Science (Biological Sciences)
  • Course description
    This course is available for on-campus study by students with an International student visa.
    Bachelor of Science (Biological Sciences) students can study unitsets in the following disciplines as part of this course:

        * Conservation Biology
        * Environmental Chemistry
        * Environmental Management
        * Catchment Management Major
        * Marine and Freshwater Management

    This course structure contains information about the units which comprise the course as well as the credit points required to successfully complete it.

    The degree has three main components:

       1. A core program of eight units completed in the first year.
       2. A Major program consisting of eight units in Biological Sciences.
       3. A Second Major* chosen from the list below:

        Conservation Biology

        Environmental Chemistry**

        Environmental Management

        Catchment Management

        Marine and Freshwater Management

    * With permission of the course coordinator an eight-unit Supporting Major from a course offered by another school may be selected instead of a recommended Second Major.

    ** Students who choose Environmental Chemistry as their second major, will need to complete in their first year EITHER SCC1111 General Chemistry unit, OR SCC1123 Chemistry for the Life Sciences AND SCC1226 Introduction to Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry units. For the latter option, students will need tosee their respective Course Coordinator.
