Biomedical Science - M2003
The Bachelor of Biomedical Science combines aspects of biology and medicine and equips you with the skills and knowledge to tackle today’s most critical issues in healthcare and disease. In this exciting degree, you’ll join one of the largest and most successful biomedical research hubs in the world.
Biomedical science is an interdisciplinary area of study, where you’ll investigate human health and disease on a deeper level. You’ll learn how diseases occur, how they affect the body, and how they can be controlled and treated. This degree covers the key biomedical disciplines of anatomy and developmental biology, biochemistry and molecular biology, immunology, microbiology, pharmacology and physiology, as well as epidemiology and how this informs human health and disease.
Our Bachelor of Biomedical Science gives you the flexibility to tailor your studies to fit your interests. Use your eight electives to gain more detailed knowledge in one of the key biomedical science areas, or broaden your knowledge by studying units from across the University. You could pick up a language, gain business skills or explore global issues and cultures.
As part of the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute, you’re embedded within a major biomedical research hub. Be taught, surrounded and inspired by some of the world’s leading biomedical scientists. And with professional development embedded throughout our degree - including opportunities for internships, work-integrated learning and hands-on research projects - you’ll graduate with transferable, in-demand skills to succeed in whichever workplace you choose.
If you’re a high-achieving student, we want to recognise and nurture your potential through our Biomedical Science Scholars Program. You’ll be part of our Biomedicine Undergraduate Scholars Program (BUSP) which gives you mentoring and one-on-one support with senior students and leading researchers at the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute as well as a range of extracurricular activities that will help you be on your way to success in the biomedical sciences. Eligible students may be awarded the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Scholarship.
Studying biomedical science opens the door to a range of rewarding careers where you can make a difference in health Our graduates have into roles in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical sectors, in health policy, in government and non-government organisations, in laboratories and research institutes - just to name a few.
With additional graduate study, you could pursue a clinical career in medicine, allied health, nursing or embryology. You could also choose to complete an Honours year, as a pathway towards a career in biomedical research.
