|Degree:||Bachelor of Arts (Honours) (BA (Hons))|
Science is about knowledge: the generation of knowledge through research and its acquisition through learning. Scientific investigation allows us to understand the world around us: how the physical world has evolved and changed since the Big Bang and how life has advanced into the complex, diverse forms. The application of scientific knowledge has led to world changing developments such as modern medicine, the mobile phone and efficient methods of energy production. As we acquire new knowledge, our understanding of the world changes which in turn leads to new and better applications. There is still much to discover and new applications to be developed.

Science at Trinity is offered through four different entry routes/streams leading to an honors degree following four years of study. We have reimagined our science programme and offer students the opportunities to choose from four entry paths/streams: Biological and Biomedical Sciences; Chemical Sciences; Geography and Geoscience; Physical Sciences. Four entry routes leading to one of 20 exit routes. The programme will offer students a detailed knowledge and thorough understanding of the scientific method. Students will learn scientific skills while developing an understanding of the role and Influence of science on society.
The advantages of studying science in Trinity:
Science Graduates develop a wide range of skills, some of which include:
Many Trinity Science and Mathematical graduates pursue graduate courses or research leading to an M.Sc. or PhD Trinity Science and Mathematics graduates pursue a wide variety of careers in a diversity of areas – for example:
Trinity Science is split into four different entry routes:
