Science and humanities subjects are studied in depth combining the practical, numeracy and computer skills of the Science graduate with the communication skills of the Arts graduate. Consider Science and Technology Studies for a critical understanding of the role of scientists in modern society; or perhaps combine Science with a language for an international edge.

More information regarding double degree course requirements can be found in UOW's Policy Guidelines. Students must seek advice and approval from both Faculties before enrolment.

Entry Requirements

Academic requirements and English requirements are available from the Course Finder.

Course Learning Outcomes

A number of the course learning outcomes in each of these degrees complement and consolidate outcomes in the partner degree. Applied across two discipline areas, the outcomes are achieved at a broader and more comprehensive level.

The outcomes which are common and consolidated in this joint degree ensure that on successful completion of the course students will be able to:

  1. Appraise and apply knowledge in a discipline area.
  2. Identify and apply information for a discipline specific context.
  3. Exercise critical thinking.
  4. Apply disciplinary knowledge to solve problems.
  5. Apply knowledge in an authentic context.
  6. Communicate to a range of audiences.

Please refer to the Undergraduate Course Handbook page of each individual degree for a comprehensive list of degree course learning outcomes.

The required 216 credit points shall include:

  1. At least 90 credit points of subjects as prescribed within one of the Bachelor of Science majors. Note: some of the interdisciplinary majors require the completion of additional credit points, which may extend the duration of your degree.
