Science holds the key to answering some of the most complex questions and global challenges we face today. But to create real change, we need more than just brilliant scientific minds. We need a new generation of science graduates equipped with a broad set of skills and experiences that complement their science training, and who can push the boundaries of possibility.
The Bachelor of Science Advanced - Global Challenges (Honours) includes all the elements of a Bachelor of Science, but with more. If you love science, and you are curious, adventurous, creative and prepared to challenge the status quo, then this course is for you.
The only one of its kind in Australia, this course will provide you with all the opportunities available to a Science honours graduate, plus many more. In addition to studying the scientific discipline of your choice - from the broad range available at Monash - you'll receive high-level training in leadership, persuasive communication, entrepreneurship, policy, ethics and corporate social responsibility.
Add access to state-of-the-art facilities, world-class teaching, inspiring high-profile guest speakers, and two one domestic or international internship programs, with at least one international placement, and you'll graduate with the tools and know-how to transform your scientific expertise into a thriving business or social enterprise.
The summit of your experience will be a year-long project where you will tackle a problem of real-world significance. Mentored by successful external leaders, you will work in small teams to develop innovations and solutions to approach an issue from scientific, policy, social and business perspectives.
You'll be perfectly placed to pursue employment with the world's leading consultancies, businesses, government and other institutions. You will also be equipped with the skills to use science to address complex global challenges, and convert ideas, potential and ambition into tangible solutions
