The Bachelor of Science (Honours) program provides you with the opportunity to pursue an independent research project in an area that interests you under the supervision of an academic staff member.
UQ is the leading university in Australia for agriculture, and you can select projects covering the plant or animal sciences at UQ Gatton. The campus houses production animals, horticultural fields, a plant nursery, post-harvest facilities, research laboratories and greenhouses, a wildlife facility, specialist veterinary and equine hospitals, and some of the best animal teaching facilities in the Southern Hemisphere.
During your honours study year, you'll be provided with a grounding in research methodology and then focus the remainder of your time on your project. You'll acquire skills which will enable you to work without close supervision in a research environment in industry or government, or proceed to a higher degree by research.
Our programs prepare you for your first job and beyond. Depending on which major you choose, here are some of the careers you could be on your way to:
