If you enjoy being challenged, consider yourself an innovator, and are passionate about shaping the world around you, our newly updated Bachelor of Business and Bachelor of Science provides a gateway to an exciting world of rewarding careers. The Bachelor of Business is designed to produce graduates with well-developed business knowledge and a mix of skills and abilities that will enable you to adapt to change with future challenges, and to contribute to the economic and social wellbeing of your community.

The University of Tasmania’s new science degree provides you with a foundation of core skills in science, analysis and rational thinking, and entrepreneurship. As a BBus/BSc graduate you will have the ability for evidence-based decision making – to clearly frame problems, to acquire and critically analyse knowledge of relevance to these problems, generate innovative evidence-based solutions that enhance the sustainability of business and society, and to effectively communicate their solutions to diverse audiences. Your decisions will be grounded in ethical business practice, and will be based on an awareness of different perspectives and world views.

The Bachelor of Business and Bachelor of Science offers you a range of flexible study options, including full-time and part-time study, as well as delivery in on-campus, blended and off-campus modes.

You have options to focus your study in one or more scientific and business disciplines, and learn the methods to apply your skills and knowledge to the practical needs of industry, business and government in both scientific and non-scientific roles.

In choosing a Bachelor of Business and Bachelor of Science you can:

  • Build a degree that is tailored specifically to your own needs: select your majors and minor subjects from 17 different disciplinary areas in the BSc component and 7 disciplinary areas in the BBus component.
  • Learn through hands-on practical experience including laboratory work, field trips, field-based units, work integrated learning and research projects.
  • Enjoy being mentored by highly qualified staff, many of whom are national and world leaders in their field.

Graduates of the Bachelor of Business and Bachelor of Science (AQF Level 7) will be able to:

  1. Acquire, critically evaluate, reflect and synthesise advanced knowledge in one of the science disciplines, and in one of the business disciplines.
  2. Demonstrate critical thinking by identifying, defining and solving problems with intellectual independence.
  3. Make evidence based decisions that take account of diverse contexts and constraints impacting on societies and environments
  4. Communicate information effectively in written, visual and oral forms with a diverse range of stakeholders.

Students considering a career in Psychology need to complete an accredited undergraduate sequence of study in Psychological Science (11 units) to progress to fourth year and postgraduate study in Psychology. The requirement for the accredited undergraduate sequence is completion of a Psychological Science major (8 core units, of which 7 are accredited) and four additional units (PSY112, PSY125, PSY223, PSY224) which must be taken as student electives in the Bachelor of Science. NOTE: the accredited undergraduate sequence cannot be completed in Science combined degrees.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                
The new Psychological Science sequence will be offered for the this first time in 2019. The Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC) will undertake assessment of the 3-year undergraduate sequence at the University of Tasmania in 2019. The accreditation status of the 3-year undergraduate sequence will be updated on the universities relevant course and unit web pages once APAC has informed the Division of Psychology of the outcome of this assessment. Further information on the accreditation status of psychology courses can be viewed on the APAC website.
