Bachelor of Science (73O)

Course Structure

In the Bachelor of Science, you choose a major, a minor, 4 degree electives and 8 student electives.

With the exception of Mathematics, a major and minor must be taken from different discipline areas. Introductory degree electives must be a pair of units (eg KEA101 and KEA102) chosen from a different discipline area than the major and minor, except students may select introductory level degree elective units in Mathematics if they have also selected either a major or minor, but not both, from that discipline area. Launceston students transfer to Hobart if they wish to continue studies in Chemistry and Mathematics after introductory level.

This degree consists of a total of 24 units comprising:
  • A major of 8 units: 2 introductory, 2 intermediate, 4 advanced units
  • A minor of 4 units: 2 introductory, 2 intermediate units
  • Four degree electives: 2 introductory, 2 intermediate units - the intermediate units may be from a different discipline to the introductory degree electives, if listed in the degree elective schedule.
  • Eight student electives: units which may be chosen from this or any other subject area within the University, provided they meet the unit level requirements for the degree (see next point below), unit pre-requisites and quotas. You may take individual units or study up to the equivalent of a second major or a minor through your student electives and try out different subject areas - it's your choice.
  • Unit level requirements for the degree are: between 8-10 units at introductory level, 6-10 units at intermediate level and 6-10 units at advanced level. For example, this means you could study 8 introductory, 8 intermediate and 8 advanced, or you could take 8 introductory, 7 intermediate and 9 advanced units or other combinations within these ranges.
This diagram illustrates the course structure. Please check individual unit information for the semester that each unit is available in.

Student Electives

Student electives are your choice of available units from any study area across the University, provided you are eligible to enrol in them (i.e. meet any unit pre-requisites). You can take up to a second major or minor from the degree schedule through your student electives or the equivalent of a major or minor from a discipline area outside the degree schedule and try out different subjects – it’s your choice.

A wide range of Student Electives are available.
