Boost your employability with honours in science
Be mentored by scientific experts as you immerse yourself in discipline-based research or a broader professional skills pathway.
An honours degree in science is one year of study where you concentrate on a project or area of science that interests you the most.
Both our disciplinary research and professional skills pathways:
- Enhance your professional skills and prepare you for greater career success.
- Include a coursework component which will help you gain the skills employers want.
- Involve a research, industry or community related science project of your choice.
- Can lead to further study at PhD level.
How can I study honours in science?
Bachelor of Science (Honours) or
Bachelor of Food & Nutrition Science (Honours)
- More research intensive.
- Coursework that focuses on the study area you choose.
