This accelerated science program allows you to complete a double degree in just three years and is designed for outstanding school leavers or current Bachelor of Science students with excellent academic achievement.
This program is tailored to your needs by your very own senior academic mentor. Your mentor will introduce you to research, encourage you to carry out research projects, and help you refine your honours topic.
You’ll complete a three-year Bachelor of Science degree in two years through a combination of increased load in semesters and studies during the summer and winter teaching periods. You’ll study the Honours degree in the standard one-year full-time.
You can choose to study either two science majors, or one science major plus two science minors from a different discipline area to your major. You also have the flexibility to tailor your studies to your personal interests and career ambitions with four elective courses.
Major areas include Biology, Chemistry, and Mathematics – traditional fields that give you depth and breadth of scientific knowledge, and also Biotechnology, Ecology, and Food and Biosecurity – fields that address future scientific directions, national and regional scientific imperatives and align with USC’s research strengths. Minor areas of study include: Biochemistry, Biology, Biotechnology, Chemistry, Ecology, Food Security, Genetics, Mathematics, and Microbiology.
