Study the molecular events controlling the growth and development of cells and organisms in all living things.
In this specialisation, you'll develop a comprehensive understanding of the chemical basis of life and its relevance to research and development in areas like medicine, proteomics, genomics, bioinformatics, biotechnology and genetic engineering.
Learn how molecular events can go wrong in certain diseased states and how this contributes to the development of new drugs.
You’ll develop and apply your knowledge through practical laboratory experience, structured tutorials, specialised seminars, and contributing to active research projects.
In your final year, you’ll undertake your own independent research project under the guidance of an academic supervisor and present your findings to the scientific community.
Deepen your scientific expertise by combining your specialisation with a major or minors from a wide range of science disciplines. Or broaden your skill set even further by choosing from 46 minors in other study areas, including languages, communication, design and economics.
With a qualification in advanced science, you’ll be well equipped to progress into a higher degree by research and kickstart your research career.
Career paths lead to some of the most exciting, challenging and innovation-led roles in science and medicine, from laboratories, hospitals and government agencies to specific positions in research.
