Agricultural and resource economics
Agricultural and resource economics develops agricultural policies and management strategies for long-term sustainability.Read more
Agricultural science focuses on the multidisciplinary nature of the challenges facing the global community. Rapidly growing population, changing climate and limited land and fresh water resources will impact on the ability of agriculture to meet demand. Science-based solutions are required to achieve worldwide goals of sustainability for industry and community development.Read more
Science graduates are in demand worldwide with job opportunities across a range of sectors. We offer a large variety of flexible and industry relevant undergraduate courses under the Bachelor of Science.
Pursuing an extended major will provide you with a well rounded education and can open up greater career and postgraduate study opportunities.
Combined Bachelor's Degrees
Pursue your passions and maximise your career options with our combined bachelor’s degrees. You’ll complete two degrees in normally just four years – one comprehensive (where you’ll choose a major from a wide range of options) and one specialised (where you’ll take a defined study plan).
The combined BE(Hons)/BSc allows you to pair your engineering degree with another passion, broadening your career options and giving you an edge in a rapidly changing workforce. With just two additional semesters, you can graduate as an accredited engineer with your Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) along with a Bachelor of Science and a major in Environmental Science.
Prepare for your dream career with a specialised bachelor’s degree. You will take an extended major with a carefully designed study plan to give you in-depth knowledge of your chosen career or profession. You can complement this with a minor or electives from almost any study area.
Combined Bachelor's and Master's (CBM)
The Combined Bachelor's and Master's (CBM) is a four-year accelerated program for high-performing students. Over your first three years, you'll complete an extended major and a semester of more advanced study, followed by a final year of postgraduate study. On completion, you'll be awarded both a full bachelor's and a full master's degree in four years (2.5 + 1.5 years).
A master's degree allows you to develop specialist skills and knowledge in your field of choice. A master's qualification can help you to stand out from the crowd in a competitive job market. We offer an extensive range of master's degrees in a number of different areas of study.
