Overview

Broaden your career prospects by studying Science and Social Research and Policy together. With 24 majors – from bioinformatics and chemistry, to psychology and statistics – the Science component gives you the flexibility to sample a wide range of subjects before deciding on your specialisation. Science courses will provide you with a solid education in scientific theory, method and research. Social Research and Policy components develop knowledge and 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.
