The Biological Sciences major aims to produce biologists with wide-ranging training and experience in a broad area of biology. It adopts an integrated approach to the major themes of biology, from the molecular and cellular levels to the whole organism and community levels. This is achieved by examining the common features and differences in the biochemistry, genetics, ecology and behaviour of micro-organisms, plants and animals.
In addition, students may select electives to place emphasis on animal biology, biochemistry, conservation biology, ecology, fisheries science, microbiology and molecular biology.
Murdoch’s Bachelor of Science is a flexible degree which gives you the opportunity to build deep understanding and practical experience as well as to supplement your studies by engaging with industry and the community on relevant problems. You can even undertake studies through another discipline to broaden your understanding of the way in which science operates in relation to social, business, health and policy environments.
