This is the most flexible degree program offered, enabling students to study a wide range of options in Science as well as other areas of interest. It is built on a solid foundation of core areas in Science such as Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, Earth and Environmental Science, and Psychology. More specialised topics can then build on these areas.
What you will study
All students choose a major. If a student studies a minor, the minor may be taken from another area of Science, or may include approved courses from other UNSW faculties. All programs also include units in general education, which cover social and ethical issues as well as topics from outside of Science.
Choosing a broad range of courses in first year, before deciding on a major in second and third years, is a popular approach to the Bachelor of Science program. This gives you time to become more familiar with the different areas of science and to discuss your interests with academic staff and students. For students who are already sure of their interests, the Bachelor of Science program can be structured and tailored for them from first year to third year. Students who perform exceptionally well may have the opportunity to study for an honours degree by taking an extra year to apply their knowledge to a research project, supervised by researchers at UNSW.
The Bachelor of Science program is designed to give students the opportunity to transfer between Science programs at UNSW, including advanced level and professional degrees. The flexibility of the program means it also combines with a second degree in Education, Engineering, Arts, Social Sciences, Law or Business.
You can choose a major area of study in a field of Science that interests you, which will provide you with a solid education in scientific theory, method and research. At the same time you can pursue complementary interests outside Science with your chosen minor.*Note: Applications to transfer between programs are assessed on academic merit and are conducted through UAC.
