Students enrolled in the Bachelor of Science have the flexibility to customise their degree to maximise their future career opportunities, by studying one of the Science majors offered by the School of Arts & Sciences, as well as building a second specialisation from other Schools within the University.

The Science program at Notre Dame provides students with a broad foundation, developing important analytical and critical skills. Small class sizes provide the opportunity to work closely with experts and undertake a wide range of field trips to complement their learning. The flexible degree structure means students can integrate studies in a range of diverse subject areas.

Bachelor of Science graduates have broad career opportunities. The unique internship program provides 225 hours of professional experience in which students develop their confidence and job-readiness. Research units in second and third year allow students to explore their own areas of interest more deeply, as well as develop the skills, knowledge and confidence to follow the scientific method.
