Awarded by La Trobe University


Course introduction

Introduction


Science seeks answers to some of the most significant questions facing humankind. The extent of climate change, the best medicines to treat cancer, the most effective ways to protect endangered animals - and many other challenges - all require answers from science.

Our Bachelor of Science (Pharmaceutical Science) is a programme that provides students the opportunity to focus on subjects directly related to formulation science, medicinal chemistry, pharmacology and therapeutics as opposed to a generic science degree. This degree allows students to develop skills that are highly regarded and highly valued in the pharmaceutical medical bioscience industries
