The Bachelor of Biological Sciences prepares students to find the solutions to big issues like protecting native forests, managing endangered species, discovering new medical cures or securing food for the future. In the first year, students will explore the basics of animal, plant and microbial biology through the lenses of cell biology, genetics, evolution, biodiversity and ecology. In second and third year, students can specialize through a choice of disciplines including botany, microbiology, zoology, biochemistry or genetics. Students will be exposed to cutting edge biological research via world-class research institutes (the La Trobe Institute of Molecular Science and Centre for AgriBiosciences) and have access to the La Trobe Wildlife Sanctuary on our Melbourne Campus. During the field excursions students will learn techniques to survey animal and plant biodiversity. During lab classes students will gain the skills to conduct scientific experiments and develop and present their own work.
