The Advanced stream is only available in the Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Advanced Studies and the Bachelor of Science/Master of Mathematical Sciences.
For 2000 or 3000 level units, advanced units are either units designated "Advanced", "Adv", "Special Studies Program" or "SSP" in the list of units for the major in Table A.
A unit will also be considered advanced if a student accelerates their studies by taking a unit at a level higher than the unit specified for the major in Table A. For example, where a Table A major specifies a unit at 3000 level, a student doing a 4000-level unit in its place would be regarded as completing an advanced unit.
The following majors have sufficient Advanced units to fulfil the requirement of a minimum of 24 credit points of advanced units of study at the 2000-level and higher. Please note, programs which contain one of these embedded majors also meet requirements.
Students who graduate from the Advanced stream will be able to:
|1||Demonstrate an advanced, coherent understanding of the methods of science and explain why current knowledge is both contestable and testable by further inquiry.|
|2||Evaluate the role and relevance of science to society.|
|3||Exhibit depth and breadth of knowledge by demonstrating advanced knowledge in at least one disciplinary area.|
|4||Demonstrate well-developed knowledge in at least one other disciplinary area.|
|5||Critically analyse and solve problems by gathering, synthesising and critically evaluating information from a range of sources.|
|6||Identify research questions, design and plan an investigation.|
|7||Select and apply practical, conceptual and / or theoretical techniques or tools in order to formulate and model complex problems or conduct an investigation.|
|8||Collect, accurately record, interpret and draw conclusions from data.|
|9||Be effective communicators of reasoning, results, information, or arguments, to informed professional audiences using a variety of modes.|
|10||Be accountable for their own learning and scientific work by demonstrating initiative and intellectual independence.|
|11||Collaborate effectively and work responsibly and safely in an individual or team context.|
|12||Comply with regulatory frameworks relevant to their disciplinary area and personally prac practise ethical conduct.|
