Course Description

A La Trobe Bachelor of Science degree gives you the skills and knowledge to contribute to some of today's biggest challenges, like protecting endangered animals or developing new ways to treat disease.

This is one of our most flexible degrees with up to 14 majors to choose from including biochemistry, biomedical science, botany, chemistry, environmental geoscience, genetics, mathematics, microbiology, molecular biology, nanotechnology, pharmaceutical chemistry, physics, statistics, and zoology. You will study a range of subjects to give you a foundation in science and related disciplines. Then you will either select two science specialties or combine your science major with studies from another discipline, like business.

Throughout your course, you'll have access to purpose-built facilities including the La Trobe Institute for Molecular Science. You'll also have opportunities for work placements with organisations like the Department of Environment and Primary Industries and other businesses conducting research in biochemistry, chemistry and genetics.

Through our partnerships with education providers all over the world, you'll also have the opportunity to study abroad and gain knowledge of alternative scientific processes and practices.

You can apply to study this course at Bendigo or Melbourne Campus through our Hallmark Scholars Program.
