Advanced Science is an elite undergraduate degree course developed to equip high-achieving students with the academic and technical knowledge necessary to be the science and research leaders and innovators of the future.

Its curriculum responds to growing demand for universities to equip scientists with higher-level quantitative and computational skills, along with the confidence and capacity to think innovatively.

All JCU's Science majors will be available to you:

  • Aquaculture Science and Technology
  • Chemistry
  • Earth Science
  • Marine Biology
  • Mathematics
  • Molecular and Cell Biology
  • Physics
  • Zoology and Ecology

The difference is that this course places additional emphasis on developing capacity for scientific analysis and modelling, compared to the Bachelor of Science.

Today's employers and science experts tell us that, for the next generation, these capabilities will be even more important for scientists than they are now.
