Programme Aims and Features
The Faculty of Education in collaboration with the Faculty of Science offers an inter-disciplinary five-year honours degree focusing on the study and teaching of the science subjects Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Combined Science and Integrated Science in the new senior secondary school curriculum.
