Maybe you’ve always known that you wanted to be a marine biologist.

Or perhaps you’re still deciding whether you want to be an engineer or a geologist. A doctor or a vet? A data scientist or a physicist? A chemist or a psychologist?

The Bachelor of Science is a pathway to all these careers, and hundreds more.

Unparalleled choice

With more than 40 majors on offer, you can select from the full range of science, biomedicine, mathematics, engineering and IT subjects.

If you’re the kind of person who already has a clear goal in mind, you can get started on your path right away. Or, if you’re still unsure, you don’t need to decide now. We’ve set up the course so you can explore, taking the time you need to find your passion.

Learn from the world’s best

You’ll be taught, mentored and inspired by international experts in their fields. Our lecturers have a huge range of specialties, but what they have in common is their passion for sharing their knowledge with you.

High challenge, high support

We attract the brightest and most ambitious students from around Australia and internationally. We will challenge you to achieve your best, and our friendly staff and support services will be there to help you succeed.

Career-ready for any future

At Melbourne, we create well-rounded graduates who can lead inside and outside the lab. That’s why our degrees aren’t like most others you’ll find in Australia.

First, we make sure you have a first-class education in your main specialty. Then we help broaden your skill set with subjects such as law, languages, business, or communications. The idea is that you’ll be well prepared for not just your first career, but also your second, third and beyond.

After completing the Bachelor of Science, you’ll have the breadth, depth and experience you’ll need to join the workforce right away. Or you can further specialise by completing a graduate degree.

Why science?

Over the next decade, an estimated 75 per cent of jobs in the fastest growing industries will need skills in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine.

If you want a job in an emerging industry, or maybe one that hasn't even been thought of yet, a Bachelor of Science will get you there.
