Why study the Bachelors of Economics/Science?

By combining these two areas of study in a dual degree, students will be given a background in economic theories and principles, along with scientific theory and practical skills in their chosen major within the Bachelor of Science.

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.
