  • Career opportunities

    This degree provides a foundation for a career in the vast fields of science or the broad range of opportunities available to arts graduates. Graduates of this double degree bridge the gap between science and communication with strong skills in both disciplines.

    Job opportunities are extremely diverse and may include work in research institutes and industry fields related to technology, production, environment, agriculture, minerals and resources. These industries value employers with sound scientific knowledge and the ability to communicate strategies, policies and findings to the public.

    Career opportunities also exist in planning agencies, management and administration, public relations, human resource management and marketing.

    We help students connect with employers, find jobs and explore career options.
