Bachelor of Science (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics)
Modes of Study  Full-time
Duration 3 Years
Level Undergraduate
Course Code 07BOSC


The Bachelor of Science is a single major degree programme, requiring students to minor in a second subject/cognate area, that aims at providing students with a coherent and systematic introduction to the broad knowledge, theories, principles, concepts  and problem‐solving  techniques in  the sub‐field of natural sciences. The programme will enable students  to acquire cognitive,  problem‐solving and key transferable skills necessary for addressing a wide range of pressing challenges in relation to Science,  Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) in the current Namibian market and economy. This science degree provides a  platform for developing scientific literacy and for building‐up essential scientific knowledge and skills for lifelong learning in STEM.  Additionally, the programme is designed to enable students to apply knowledge of the natural sciences to real life situations and  appreciate the relationship between science and other disciplines. The programme structure facilitates exposure of students to a  variety of disciplines, at least initially, but ultimately requiring specialisation in the final year in a major complemented by a com‐  ponent of Work Integrated Learning (WIL).
