Science is concerned with the systematic study of the nature and behaviour of the physical universe. It is fundamental to technology and industry.

From the food that we eat to the cars that we drive, science impacts all of society through the solutions and technologies developed.

Science leads to a variety of rewarding careers ranging from; research scientists who focus on the development of medical technologies for the treatment of wounds and infections or cancer; to pathologists, medical scientists, geneticists, nanotechnologists and laboratory managers. Many scientists throughout their career also emerge as business leaders with executive positions as business development managers, company directors and Chief Executive Officers.

At the University of South Australia we offer two undergraduate degrees in science, the Bachelor of Science and the Bachelor of Science (Advanced Materials).

The Bachelor of Science program provides you with a broad science education through a combination of major and minors chosen from a variety of science-related disciplines. The emphasis on laboratory and fieldwork and project-based learning activities will give you the necessary skills to apply your knowledge while pursuing one of many inspiring and well paid career paths.

You may also be interested in the Bachelor of Science (Advanced Materials), a multi-disciplinary science program which focuses on South Australia’s priority areas of mining, water, energy and health. Incorporating physics, chemistry, biology and mathematics, as well as a range of specialist topics, this program presents graduates with excellent employment opportunities locally, nationally and internationally.

The University of South Australia also offers postgraduate degrees in Research.
