Bachelors of Economics / Science

Gain a strong foundation in economic theories and principles, along with scientific theory and practical skills in your chosen science major, by combining these two areas of study in a dual degree.

Economics is more than just markets, models and capital. It’s the study of how people and organisations make decisions about using our scarce resources. When you combine the ability to question, analyse, model and predict human behaviour with the interdisciplinary knowledge and practical skills of scientific training, you'll graduate with a respected, desirable qualification.

When this program is studied at a standard load of four courses per semester, the final semester will comprise part-time study of only two courses. Students may decide to overload in previous semesters or undertake study in a summer semester to reduce the total duration of the program.

Program highlights

  • Benefit from the research-intensive focus at the School of Economics that ensures content is engaging and relevant today and into the future.
  • Develop a range of statistical and analytical tools you can use to solve pivotal policy and decision-making challenges.
  • Learn how to work independently, perform critical experiments, analyse data and communicate results.
  • Build your interdisciplinary scientific knowledge and practical skills.
