BH-SCNCE v.2 Bachelor of Science (Science) (Honours)
Course CRICOS Code: 061491D
Registered full-time Duration: 1 Year
Bachelor Honours Degrees prepare students to develop advanced knowledge and skills for professional work, research and further learning corresponding to AQF level 8 qualifications.
This course enables students to extend their knowledge of current academic research methodology in the following major areas of study; Chemistry, Computer Science, Environment, Coastal and Marine Science and Agriculture, Geology, Geophysics, Geographic Information Systems, Mathematical Sciences, Mine and Engineering Surveying and Physics. This will be demonstrated through studying a specialised methodology unit, units in their specialised area and the conduct of a supervised research project and presentation of an honours dissertation
Additional Course Expenses
Students may be expected to purchase a number of textbooks and other essential study materials. Students may require a laboratory coat.
Course Entry and Completion Details
Applicants for a Bachelor Honours Degree are required to meet University academic and English language entry standards; details are provided at http://futurestudents.curtin.edu.au and include flexible entry pathways. Admission to Honours is by invitation and follows high achievement in an appropriate Bachelor Degree. Any specific course entry and completion requirements must also be met.
Specifically, applicants require a relevant degree at the appropriate level. Refer to admission into Honours Degree Programs and Regulation for Honours Degrees in the Curtin University Handbook (General Information section).
Credit for Recognised Learning
Applications for credit towards a course are assessed on an individual basis. Credit reduces the amount of learning required to complete the course and may be granted for formal education qualifications, non-formal learning from non-award programs of study and informal learning through work experiences. Further information can be found at http://futurestudents.curtin.edu.au.
Pathway to Further Study
Graduates may qualify for entry to Graduate Certificates, Graduate Diplomas, Master by Coursework and Research degrees and Doctorates. For further details, see the University website http://curtin.edu.au.
Bachelor Honours Degrees typically comprise an honours course equivalent to one year of full-time study, which is additional to the associated bachelor degree.
