    Your major structure

    This major can be completed through the Bachelor of Science.

    In your first and second years you will complete subjects that are prerequisites for your major as well as other science core, science elective and breadth studies.

    In your third year, you will complete 50 points (usually four subjects) of study that is deep and specialised study in environmental systems. This major is made up of core and sore selective subjects.

    Breadth Studies

    Breadth is a unique feature of the Melbourne Model. It gives you the chance to explore subjects outside of science, developing new perspectives and learning to collaborate with others who have different strengths and interests — just as you will in your future career.

    Some of our students use breadth to explore creative interests or topics they have always been curious about. Others used breadth to improve their career prospects by complementing their major with a language, communication skills or business expertise.
