The Melbourne curriculum
Your Melbourne experience is yours to shape. If you’re interested in science, you can start with the Bachelor of Science. Over three years, you’ll be able to explore science majors and develop a deep understanding in your chosen study area. We have more than 40 science majors for you to choose from - so you could find yourself specialising in anything from infection and immunity to zoology or chemistry.
After your undergraduate degree, you can enter the workforce or progress to a specialised graduate, masters degree.
Explore your undergraduate options
What is breadth?
Unique to the Melbourne curriculum, our undergraduate degrees allow you to explore subjects outside your core study area – we call this breadth. Breadth means you can tailor your course to fit your individual passions and career ambitions. You may choose to take a single subject in something you’ve always been curious about; or take a sequence of three or more subjects called a breadth track. This can help you develop knowledge and skills relevant to topics like experiencing Indigenous culture, musical instrument or a language.
Better than a double degree
Become a professionally accredited lawyer, teacher, veterinarian, dentist and more by completing an undergraduate degree in science followed by the relevant graduate degree. Secure your place in both degrees with a Graduate Degree Package. You’ll graduate with a higher level of qualification than a traditional double degree.
