Genetics is transforming the way we investigate diseases, develop medical treatments, protect endangered species and create food security.
You’ll advance your knowledge in genetic structure, genetic interaction and the genetic basis of traits.
We'll expand your critical thinking and teach you to analyse complex biological data using the latest genetic technologies.
You’ll learn to translate genetic information into meaningful insights that may lead to new discoveries.
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.
A specialisation in genetics will prepare you for a broad range of employment and research opportunities across ecology, medicine and agriculture.
With a qualification in advanced science, you’ll be well equipped to progress into a higher degree by research and kickstart a rewarding research career.
