Overview

Bachelor of Science - Pathway to Teaching (Primary/Secondary)

This degree combines Science with learning about Education. Science asks questions about how the natural world works and the impact of humans at its interface. It does so in a systematic, yet rigorously creative way based on inquiry and evidence for ideas. A Bachelor of Science will prepare you to take part in this process of inquiry, by both contributing to it and by using scientific knowledge to solve current problems in broad settings including in society. 

Students will learn core concepts and skills investigating the natural world, proposing and testing ideas by experimentation and observation; quantifying and modelling processes; communicating findings, thinking independently and critically. Students can enrol in this degree and select from a range of scientific disciplines with the option of expanding learning into other areas outside of science. 

Students need note that different majors are offered on different campuses. Students will also take 4 units of study in Education.. Students will be offered a place into the M.Teach program on successful completion of the degree.

Students choosing MT3021 Nutrition and Food Science will be required to complete a compulsory work placement of a minimum 100 hours. Students choosing any other testamur major may also elect to complete a work placement.

All students must complete 60 credit points of study at Level 3 to meet course requirements. Depending on the specialisation selected, students may need to select at least 10 credit points of elective study at Level 3 to meet this requirement.

Students can choose from a range of majors:

Animal Science, Applied Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Data Science, Ecology, Environmental Futures, Microbiology, Forensic Chemistry, Forensic Biology, Nutrition and Food science, Zoology and Forensic science.

Students need to note that different majors are offered on different campuses, and not all majors will be offered at every campus.
