Why study at Deakin?

Get ready for your new career
This course will prepare you for a career in science education, but also provide career flexibility through the widening field of science communication, and science-related industries.
The flexible course structure gives you the opportunity to pursue two major study areas. Discipline and elective units in a variety of contemporary teaching fields – such as biology, chemistry, mathematical modelling and environmental science – will help you to build a breadth of knowledge in areas of interest.   In addition to specialising in two major study areas the Bachelor of Science degree component of the course requires you to complete at least one unit in each of the areas of biology, chemistry, physics, environmental studies and mathematics.
