If you enjoy being challenged, consider yourself an innovator, and are passionate about shaping the world around you, our newly updated Bachelor of Science with Honours provides a gateway to an exciting world of rewarding careers.

The University of Tasmania’s new science degree provides you with a foundation of core skills in science, analysis and rational thinking, and entrepreneurship. You have options to focus your study in one or more scientific disciplines, and learn the methods to apply your skills and knowledge to the practical needs of industry, business and government in both scientific and non-scientific roles.

In choosing a Bachelor of Science with Honours you can:

  • Build a degree that is tailored specifically to your own needs: select your major and minor subjects from 17 different disciplinary areas.
  • Try new subjects without the pressure of long-term commitment and discover potential new areas of interest.
  • Learn through hands-on practical experience including laboratory work, field trips, field-based units and research projects.
  • Enjoy being mentored by highly qualified staff, many of whom are national and world leaders in their field.

From 2018 onwards, our new curriculum offers you more flexibility and choice in how your degree is structured, real-world learning embedded in every course, and a choice of two Honours pathways. In addition to traditional research honours, we now offer an integrated, work-focused Applied Honours year which is open to all students who successfully complete their bachelor degree.
