Study Plans - Majors (areas of study)
Bachelor of Science
A major is a specialisation in a specific area taught within the Faculty of Sciences.
Bachelor of Science students are required to complete at least one major towards their degree. In some cases it is possible to undertake more than one major in a particular discipline.
When selecting their major(s), students should think about the scientific questions, subject areas and/or careers of interest to them. Previous academic results and other achievements can also assist with determining an area of strength.
Each major and major combination listed in the table below has a link to provide students with a 2017 study plan to define what courses must be taken at Level I, II and III to achieve a desired major.
