Selected major: Neuroscience
This major links biology and physiology with psychophysiology and neuroimaging — and we’re the only uni in Australia that offers our research students single-site access to cutting-edge MRI and MEG technologies. You’ll learn to interpret the data generated by these machines to identify healthy brains, brain disorders and diseases of the central nervous system.
Newer topics like Developmental and Molecular Neuroscience give you a more holistic understanding of contemporary neuroscience along with Neuropsychopharmacology, which connects you with our Centre for Human Psychopharmacology.
Many graduates have gone on to neuroscience careers in clinical neurophysiology and sleep labs or entered research (Melbourne is a world-leader) with Swinburne, The Florey Institute, Melbourne Brain Centre, Bionics Institute, Centre for Neural Engineering and CERA.
Selected major: Ethics and Technology
Embed your analytical and innovative thinking skill set to unpack the sometimes obvious, sometimes subtle ways in which technology is shaping our work, relationships, health, communications, and our very selves.
Examine the plethora of ethical issues around privacy and surveillance, human rights, equity and security thrown up by the use of data harvesting by private corporations and governments.
Develop strong verbal and written communication skills to create policy needed to protect human rights, social equity and security now and in the future.
In this multi-disciplinary, you’ll learn about philosophy, sociology, and politics.

Swinburne students work with ACMI
Swinburne’s Bachelor of Arts students created new experiences called Constellations for the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) visitors as part of its $40 million transformation.
The Constellation is a large-scale, data-driven exhibit that connects visitors to films, TV series, artworks and video games outside ACMI.
As ACMI’s Major Academic Partner, Swinburne supports the Swinburne Studio – an available to hire multi-purpose function space – home for ACMI’s many diverse festivals and events, as well as a programming collaboration space between the two organisations.
