Course Structure

Majors available:

  • Medicinal Chemistry: Study the design, development, biological activities and properties of drugs. You'll learn how to seek new active chemical compounds from natural products such as rainforest plants, and design novel synthetic compounds.

Minors available:

  • Applied Microbiology: Study microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses. This knowledge can be used to prevent food spoilage and biofouling, stop the spread of infectious diseases, and solve environmental problems by removing pollutants.
  • Psychology: Study the human mind, mental processes and resulting behaviour. This is a broad scientific discipline that includes investigations of the brain, memory, perception, reasoning, and mental health and wellbeing.
  • Tropical Environmental Biology: Study the behaviour of living systems with a strong focus on ecological and environmental issues of global importance such as climate change, biodiversity and conservation. Sustainable approaches to environmental conservation and biodiversity preservation are also explored.
  • Chemistry (minor): Study the science of matter and energy, how atoms and molecules react and interact, and how that behaviour can be harnessed to transform materials, medicine and technology.
  • Genetics and Genomics (minor): Study the structure, function, transmission and evolution of genes. Genetics underpins many exciting areas such as biomedical science, conservation biology and forensics.
