Overview

Broaden your career prospects by studying Advanced Science and Social Research and Policy together. The Advanced Science degree differs from the Bachelor of Science with the inclusion of advanced-level courses, an Honours year and options tailored to your aptitude and interests. In addition to foundation subjects such as biology, chemistry, physics and maths, you have access to more than 25 advanced fields of science. During your studies, you will develop the critical and analytical thinking needed for the successful completion of the research-based Honours year.

Social Research and Policy components develop skills in research and analysis to help you understand complex social, environmental and economic problems, allowing you to inform public debate and political decision making. You will undertake a core program that covers social science, policy analysis and research methods, and combine this with a choice of a major and an internship.
