We believe science will impact every job, industry and country in the world. There are no limits to the possibilities of what scientific discoveries your thinking could lead. Science is securing our future, and the career options are as vast as science itself.
Where could a science degree take you?
As part of the next generation of scientists, you’ll be integral to solving the world’s biggest sustainability and social-wellbeing challenges. Many of Murdoch’s free-thinkers are leading breakthroughs that change the world as we know it. They’ve developed genetic therapies to treat motor neuron disease, discovered new species, and investigated how farmers can help to reduce heatwaves.
With a degree in science, you can pursue a career that explores the working of the natural world, save and change lives in medical, molecular or health sciences, or discover more about the physical world:
