This degree is ideal if you know you love science, but you aren't sure what field you would like to specialise in. Students are encouraged to choose a broad range of courses in the first year, to expand their general understanding of science and enable them to choose from wide selection of major options in your second and third year. This gives students time to become more familiar with the different areas of science and to discuss possible majors with staff and other students along the way.
