This degree aims to provide a broadly-based scientific education with a multidisciplinary approach to problem solving, covering all of the principal sciences: biology, chemistry, geography, geology and physics, together with mathematics and statistics.
In addition, the program integrates material from a wide variety of disciplines relevant to the environment and its management: engineering, management, law, science and technology studies, and philosophy. This equips students to understand the ethical, social, economic and political aspects of environmental issues as well as to be able to work alongside engineers, lawyers and other professionals
Assumed Knowledge: Mathematics plus Biology or Chemistry or Geography or Earth and Environmental Sciences. Recommended studies include four units of Science (including Biology) and Mathematics. Students who have not completed Biology and/or Chemistry at the HSC are strongly recommended to enrol in bridging courses offered in February each year. Students without at least HSC Mathematics Band 4 (or equivalent) are required to take a Mathematics subject (usually MATH151) in the first year.
