Overview

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

Choose a specialisation (the specialisation appears on your graduating testamur):

Earth and Environmental Systems
Develops skills and understanding of environmental science and management. Units cover ecology, ecosystem regeneration, biochemistry, modelling and resource management (including water, catchments and waste/resources in the circular economy).

Marine Systems
Builds on introductory earth systems knowledge with units at our National Marine Science Centre Islands Marine Park. These units cover oceanography, marine ecology, fish and aquaculture, reefs, fisheries and marine parks management.

Regenerative Agriculture
Investigates human ecology, soil processes, regenerative strategies and soil management, planning of rural landscapes, developing specialist knowledge and taking a holistic approach to food production and farm management. Includes practical, on-farm residential schools.

Alternatively, you can major in Applied Chemistry, Biology or a shared major from other disciplines across the University.

The Bachelor of Science is characterised by practical field experience in all years, making use of our easy access to a variety of subtropical terrestrial, coastal and marine ecosystems.

Course Learning Outcome

GA1: Intellectual rigour

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

GA2: Creativity

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

GA3: Ethical practice

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

GA4: Knowledge of a discipline

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

GA5: Lifelong learning

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.

GA6: Communication and social skills

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.

GA7: Cultural competence

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.
  • 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:

  • Applied Chemistry
  • Biology
