The Bachelor of Science and Society combines major studies in science with complementary disciplines from other areas. The degree is designed to place science in context and to explore the applications of science in society. Graduates will have a deep understanding of at least one area of science and also be able to work effectively in their non-science discipline. This cross-disciplinary degree gives graduates the skills to work as knowledge brokers in business, government, education or science. Students enrolled in this degree will also have access to the Work-Ready Program, which orients students to future careers, helps students to prepare a career portfolio and includes assistance with work experience.
