Bachelor of Science (Honours) - BSCIH - 2018


This one-year full-time Honours course (or part-time equivalent) provides an opportunity for you to study a particular area in-depth and gain experience in project management.

It consists of two-course work units in professional skills, and a major research project where you will be tasked to successfully manage a complex project, as well as demonstrate research skills and technical or clinical skills.

Projects are available in a number of disciplines, including:

  • information technology (networking, mobile and software development and information systems)
  • environmental science (environmental science, biology, ecology and spatial science)
  • health (health science, midwifery and nursing)
  • clinical science (medical science, clinical science, sports and exercise science and pharmacy).


  • A range of Schools and Institutes, including the world-ranked research teams at the Research Institute for Environment and Livelihoods (RIEL) and Menzies School of Health Research, may host honours research projects at Charles Darwin University.
  • You will develop research techniques and problem-solving skills by participating in in-depth research under the guidance of experienced researchers.
  • Be prepared to be trained in research techniques and principles, develop advanced information acquisition, analysis and problem solving skills, and cultivate skills to effectively communicate research results in written and oral formats.


This qualification leads to roles such as scientist, environmental scientist, exercise and sports scientist, nurse or midwifery researcher, clinical nurse or midwifery specialist/consultant, environmental manager, exercise and sport scientist, biomedical scientist, teacher, scientific technical officer and laboratory manager.

You will be able to use your advanced skills in industry and government in areas such as research, practice and policy development, and positions requiring highly developed conceptual and analytical skills.

Many students develop professional networks with researchers and managers in industry and in government during their Honours research.
