Overview

The Bachelor of Science at Southern Cross University is a flexible degree that allows you to incorporate a wide range of subjects with career-focused science specialisations. 

You can focus on an area of professional practice by choosing a specialisation in Earth and Environmental Systems, Marine Systems, Forestry Systems or Regenerative Agriculture. These specialisations are identified on your graduating testamur. Alternatively, you can choose a major from Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics, Environmental Solutions or a shared major from disciplines across the University.

You can effectively design your own science degree. All students study seven core units that provide a strong foundation in science, including field and laboratory experimentation and analytical techniques, as well as socio-ecological systems, management and critical thinking. Core skills and knowledge are reinforced and expanded across the three-year program, finishing with capstone research projects in Impactful Science and Practice. 

The Bachelor of Science is characterised by a high level of practical and field experience in all years, making use of our easy access to a variety of subtropical terrestrial, coastal and marine ecosystems. Learn more about the specialisations and majors available in this degree.

Course Learning Outcome

Use complexity thinking and critical analysis in relation to scientific methods of inquiry.

Respond creatively to complex intellectual, professional, practical and societal challenges in the Anthropocene.

Apply professional judgement based on ethical behaviour, academic integrity, professional standards, regulatory frameworks, and respect for principles of social justice to support adaptability.

Select and apply appropriate practical and theoretical scientific methods, techniques and tools to collect and accurately record data through systematic inquiry.

Demonstrate broad and well-developed knowledge of the theory and application of scientific principles, system knowledge and associated practices

Synthesise, critically evaluate, and interpret scientific data and other information to draw rigorous conclusions and solve problems with intellectual independence

Reflect on the role of self in the context of learning, professional development and ethical practice in science.

Effectively communicate science and practice in a systems approach using a variety of modes to engage with a range of audiences.

Work collaboratively, responsibly and safely as part of a team.

Incorporate diverse cultural perspectives and Indigenous ways of knowing to inform understandings of complex and interconnected physical, social and economic systems.

Within their study program, students will have the option for an internship placement at career-relevant workplaces. 

Specialisations

Specialisations are a group of units which develop specialist skills and knowledge. All specialisations provide capstone units that reinforce your chosen field via research and applied practice.

  • Earth and Environmental Systems covers ecology, ecosystem regeneration, biogeochemistry, modelling and resource management (including water, catchments and waste/resources in the circular economy). You can choose from a range of elective units, including ecological economics, wildlife conservation, and protected area management.
     
  • Marine Systems builds on introductory earth systems knowledge by studying units at our National Marine Science Centre adjacent to the Solitary Islands. These cover oceanography, marine ecology, fish and aquaculture, reefs, fisheries and marine parks management. You can choose from a range of elective units including marine megafauna, ocean change biology, drone technology and special analysis, and coastal fluvial hydrodynamics.
     
  • Forestry Systems covers the vital roles forest play in natural and managed systems. Building on core science principles you will study units addressing native forest silviculture, fire ecology and management, planted trees and forests, wood science and utilisation, forest operations and technology. You can choose elective units including modelling natural systems, plant and disease management, agriculture and forest value chains, and plant biology.
     
  • Regenerative Agriculture covers human ecology, soil processes, regenerative strategies and soil management as well as the planning of rural landscapes, developing specialist knowledge and taking a holistic approach to food production and farm management. A key aspect of this specialisation is on-farm residential schools. 
     

Majors

You can choose one major plus a range of elective units or a double major and an elective unit. Majors available include:
