Why Science

Discoveries made by scientists have changed our world. We have a deep understanding of how the natural world works. We know much about how the physical world evolved from the Big Bang 14 billion years ago, how our planet evolved from stellar debris and how modern humans diverged from other hominins in the last 200,000 years.


Science Streams

Science at Trinity is offered through four different entry routes/streams leading to an honours 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 19 exit routes.  The programme will offer students a detailed knowledge and thorough understanding of the scientific method plus an appreciation that scientific knowledge changes and evolves in response to the acquisition of new information.  Students will learn scientific skills while developing communication skills and an understanding of the role and influence of scientific knowledge on society.
