Summary

The Bachelor of Education (Honours) and Bachelor of Science is a double degree course that will provide you with a high quality education in science and prepare you to offer students the same in primary or secondary schools.

If you are passionate about science and about communicating it to others, this double degree course is a fantastic choice for you, offering you the possibility of a career in science or science education.

It will provide you with a high quality education in science and prepare you to offer your students the same in primary or secondary schools. Students specialising in secondary education will qualify as specialist science or mathematics teachers, while students specialising in primary education will be qualified to teach across the school curriculum but with highly valued specialist expertise in science related areas.

In each case, you might also turn your skills to broader science education contexts such as science communication, museums and publishing.

There is always a high demand for science and mathematics teachers. Increasingly there is a call for primary teachers with specialist expertise who can support schools to improve children's learning in science and mathematics through the use of engaging and creative learning and teaching techniques.

A choice of 24 science majors and minors, spanning physics to plant sciences, biochemistry to geographical science, and psychology to mathematics, will provide you with a rich repertoire of study options. Taken together with your education studies, you can look forward to a highly rewarding career with two teaching specialisations.

You can also pursue a career in a wide range of professions that draw on your studies in science and in education, perhaps developing engaging programs for children visiting science centres or museums, or developing and publishing resources that engage the community with science. The options are broad and the choice is yours.
