In the first year of this Biological Sciences programme offered at La Trobe University , you'll 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, you can specialise through a choice of disciplines including botany, microbiology, zoology, biochemistry or genetics.
You'll get plenty of hands-on experience in our labs or on field trips to diverse habitats across Victoria.
You'll be exposed to cutting edge biological research via world-class research institutes (the La Trobe Institute of Molecular Science and Centre for AgriBiosciences) and you'll have access to the La Trobe Wildlife Sanctuary on our Melbourne Campus.
During your field excursions you'll learn techniques to survey animal and plant biodiversity. During lab classes you'll gain the skills to conduct scientific experiments and develop and present your own work.
Along with practical and theoretical classes, we'll help you prepare for the workplace through opportunities for paid work experience.
