What is this course about?

CSU's Bachelor of General Studies (Science) program offers a range of flexible, generalist undergraduate study areas with a wide range of opportunities and choices available to graduates.

CSU's Bachelor of General Studies (Science) provides students flexible study options with access to a diverse pool of subjects that teach a wide range of knowledge and skills. The aim of this approach is to increase the student's potential to meet a wider range of vocational needs in an increasingly broad variety of science environments. The course allows students flexibility in the construction of a program of study that they consider will best meet their future employment needs.

The Bachelor of General Studies (Science) draws upon the extensive portfolio of subjects already developed by CSU's Faculty of Science as well as the subject offerings of other CSU faculties and any tertiary study previously undertaken.

The University Certificate in General Studies (Science) and Associate Degree in General Studies (Science) are exit point degrees, should a student decide to withdraw from the Bachelor of General Studies (Science) program.
