Science at Otago
Studying Science at Otago gives you the opportunity to participate and learn in an environment where cutting-edge research projects are under way all the time. It's an environment that has earned us our international reputation.
What we offer
The diversity of quality science subjects that can now be studied at both the undergraduate and postgraduate levels is very broad. As well as our touchstone BSc and BSc(Hons) degrees with their large assortment of majors, you may also be interested in BAppSc, our professional degrees, or programmes that cut across normal departmental structures.
A sciences education develops the essential lifelong learning skills that employers seek such as critical thinking, communication skills, interpersonal and teamwork skills, and analytical and problem-solving skills.
Research and Teaching Excellence
We have world-leading researchers and teachers, as well as unique field sites for environmental sciences. Our research and teaching facilities are state of the art, but you can't beat having the deep ocean as your lab, or classes taught under the trees of one of the world's most beautiful campuses.
