Description (Click to hide)(Section detail has been hidden from print)Back to top

The Bachelor of Science degree program (Program Code 10323) is a Level 7 AQF compliant undergraduate coursework program.

Science is enormously exciting. Think space physics, satellite technology, biotechnology, weather forecasting, climate change, nanotechnology.... the list goes on. So much is happening and yet there is still an enormous amount left to discover and explore.

The APAC (Australian Psychology Accreditation Council) accredited major sequence is not available to students who commence the program in 2012 or after. A Psychology major is available in the program, however is not accredited for students commencing study in 2012 onwards. Students who commence the program in 2012 or after, and who wish to complete an accredited Psychology program, are advised to apply for admission to the 4 year Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) program.


Study a language (Click to hide)(Section detail has been hidden from print)Back to top

All students can now enrol in an undergraduate Diploma in Languages alongside their main degree program. This diploma will enhance proficiency in another language or languages, and will increase international career opportunities. Subject to course availability, this additional program will generally add an extra year to studies, and students will graduate with a Diploma in Languages as well as their other degree. Please note that all language courses are held on campus (face to face) at Callaghan.

Requirements and Structure Back to top

Bachelor of Science students must pass 240 units of which at least 160 units must be approved science courses (Note 3). Students must complete at least one major. Students can take a double major or a major with a co-major (Note 2).

The 160 units of approved science courses consist of:

1000 LEVEL (60 units)

  • 10 units of 1000 level STAT directed course (Note 1)
  • 10 units of 1000 level MATH directed course (Note 4)
  • 20 units of 1000 level compulsory courses from your major

(30 units for Biological Sciences, Marine Science, Mathematics, Photonics and Sustainable Resource Management majors)

  • 20 units of 1000 level approved science courses

2000 LEVEL (30 units)

  • 30 units of 2000 level courses from your major, including courses compulsory for the major

(20 units only for Photonics and 40 units for Chemistry majors)

3000 LEVEL (60 units)

  • 40 units of 3000 level courses from your major, including courses compulsory for the major

(60 units for the Photonics major)

  • 20 units of 3000 level approved science courses

2000/3000 LEVEL (10 units)

  • 10 units of 2000/3000 level approved science course

Students can take the following majors:

  • Biological Sciences major (100 units)
  • Chemistry major (100 units)
  • Earth Sciences major (90 units)
  • Geography major (90 units)
  • Marine Science (100 units – Ourimbah)

  • Sustainable Resource Management major (100 units – Ourimbah)

Students may take up to 80 units of general electives.

100 units at the 1000 level is the maximum allowed.

NOTE 1: Only one of STAT1020 or STAT1070 may count as the 1000 level STAT directed course.

STAT1020 must be taken with:

Chemistry

Geography

STAT1070 must be taken with:

Biological Sciences

Earth Sciences

Marine Science

Mathematics co-major

Photonics

Physics

Psychology

Statistics co-major

Students who are attempting a double major where STAT1020 is required for one major and STAT1070 is required for the second major or co-major MUST take STAT1070.

If a student takes both STAT1020 and STAT1070, only STAT1070 will count as the 10 units of 1000 level STAT directed course and STAT1020 will count as a 1000 level elective course.

NOTE 2: Co-majors must be taken with another major. Students interested primarily in Mathematic or Statistics should consider enrolment in the Bachelor of Mathematics program.

NOTE 3: An approved science course is any course listed in the Bachelor of Science program handbook.

NOTE 4: All students must complete one of the Mathematics Directed courses. However, an exemption is available for students who have demonstrated a performance in mathematics equivalent to or exceeding the attainment of Band 5 in the subject "Mathematics" (formerly 2-unit Mathematics) in the NSW HSC. Note that different majors have different mathematics requirements.


Transition Arrangements Back to top

From 2015, STAT1070 will now be a 1000 level STAT directed course and students must choose either STAT1020 or STAT1070 depending on the major(s) they are undertaking. Students who commenced prior to 2015 and who have completed STAT1070 are unaffected by this requirement.

From 2014 a new program structure was introduced and students who commenced the program prior to 2014 will have been advised to transition to the revised 2014 structure, wherever their pattern of enrolment allowed them to do so. Students transitioning to the revised 2014 structure must ensure that they complete all required compulsory courses for their major. Students are strongly encouraged to seek independent transition and enrolment advice from their Program Advisor.

From 2013 the previous core course SCIT2000 was removed from the program. Students who commenced prior to 2013 who completed SCIT2000 can still count this course towards their program.

Students who have already successfully completed BIOL1050 cannot count BIOL1070 towards their program.

Students who have already successfully completed ENVS2001 cannot count PHYS2300 towards their degree.

Student who have already successfully completed ENVS3205 cannot count GEOS3340 towards their degree.

Students who have already successfully completed SCIT3000 cannot count GEOG3330 towards their program.

Students who have already successfully completed SRMT2030 can not count ENVS2009 towards their degree.

Students who have already successfully completed MARI3400 or SCIT3000 or SCIT3500 can not count ENVS3400 towards their degree.
