Durham University Natural Sciences

Welcome to the Natural Sciences website

The BSc and MSci Natural Sciences degree programmes allows you to combine subjects to design your own broad based (two or three subjects) degree programme or follow one of a large number of Joint Honours degrees. Put simply, if you are a scientist and want to combine more than one subject at Durham University then you need to apply for Natural Sciences.
