Bachelor of Science




Avondale’s Bachelor of Science (BSc) is a flexible and versatile degree that is designed to not only prepare you for a large range of careers in science, but also for ongoing research and postgraduate study at Masters and Doctoral level. The degree allows you to choose an individualised study path, giving you the choice to specialise in a particular area or gain a broad spectrum of knowledge in a range of sciences. The BSc also provides an ideal path into other professional degrees in medical science and allied health, as well as into direct employment in science-related industries. Designed to provide a tertiary science qualification in the context of Christian values, the degree will allow you to explore the interaction between a scientific understanding of the natural world and a Christian faith and world view.
