Science and Biomedical Science - S2007

If you wish to gain a solid foundation in fundamental sciences and expand this with biomedical sciences, then this course is for you.

In the right environment, the simplest ideas can grow to have great impact on the way we live. Monash researchers have achieved the world's first IVF pregnancy, developed anti-flu drugs and turned human kidney cells back into embryonic stem cells.

This course will give you the best of both worlds - the knowledge and skills of the applied aspects of biomedical science and the more theoretical focus, available from the science course. It will set you on your way to making a difference to people's lives.

This course leads to two separate degrees:

  • the Bachelor of Science, and
  • the Bachelor of Biomedical Science.


You will gain all the benefits of each degree course (see Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Biomedical Science) and be fully equipped to pursue a career in either field separately or to combine the two in your chosen work.


As both science and biomedical science graduates are highly employable, this double degree course will increase your career prospects. You'll be well prepared to work in the healthcare and medical-related industries, as well as areas that require fundamental science knowledge and skills.


Employment opportunities exist in pharmaceutical industries, research institutes, industry development and product technology, where highly skilled, critical thinkers are valued. Other employment possibilities include hospitals and medical industries, the government sector and health communications and promotion.
