Choose your degree

With the Australian National University Bachelor of Science you have the flexibility to explore all your interests, tailoring a program for the direction you choose to take science.

If you are looking for that little bit extra in your degree, the Bachelor of Science (Advanced) (Honours) provides the same breadth of opportunities as the Bachelor of Science, with the addition of Honours Pathway Options activities. For added flexibility, up to a third of your courses can be from other areas of the University, so you can tailor a program to your interests.

The Bachelor of Philosophy (Honours) or PhB is a unique program that allows intellectually ambitious students to explore their interests, develop their research skills and be mentored by leading academics, while enjoying the camaraderie of a group of like-minded and social students

Combined degrees

The undergraduate degree programs in earth sciences can also form part of combined programs.
