The Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Science offers students a general understanding of contemporary social and cultural developments through a range of study areas, as well as a capacity to understand complex scientific information in a specialised field.

You'll develop a range of key humanities and scientific skills and knowledge related to current and projected industry needs.

Drawing on the expertise of leading teachers, researchers and industry experts, the course allows you to design a degree to develop a unique range of interdisciplinary skills.

Work Integrated Learning is a guaranteed part of all our bachelor degrees. This double degree has two units where you’ll have the opportunity to work on industry-linked projects. In Grand Challenges: Making a Difference (ART30001), you’ll work in teams and develop valuable collaborative skills as you research innovative solutions to contemporary issues facing society, and in Grand Challenges in Science (NPS30003), you’ll work on an individual research project to develop valuable research and development skills.

Selected major: Biochemistry

Study the molecules of life and the fundamental nature of matter in terms of molecules, reactions and properties. Examine how biochemical knowledge can be applied to a range of industries and medical investigations, focusing on skills such as culturing microorganisms and investigating complex molecules such as enzymes and DNA.

 

Students who select Biochemistry as a major may not select Biotechnology as a second major.
