Majors, minors & specialisations

Completion of 50 points of study at third year level.

A number of these science majors include specialisations. Descriptions of the specialisations are located within the majors.

Students who commenced their course prior to 2015 and are planning to complete majors that are no longer offered should consult the handbook entry for the year they commenced their course and may then contact the Science Student Centre if they require further advice on major and subject selection.

Please note that as of 2015 the Atmosphere & Ocean Science and Geomatics majors were renamed to Climate & Weather and Spatial Systems respectively.

The structure, subject options or learning outcomes of these majors remain unchanged
