Bachelor of Science and Biomedical Science

Monash University

Program Overview

Science and Biomedical Science is a double degree course providing comprehensive foundations in fundamental sciences complemented by specialist biomedical sciences. This course provides the knowledge and skills of the applied aspects of biomedical science and the more theoretical focus.

Double degree courses allow you to study towards two different degrees at the same time, and graduate with two separate qualifications. And because a required subject in one course can count as an elective in the other, our double degrees take two years less than if you studied for the two degrees separately.

The Bachelor of Science is a comprehensive course, structured in three equal parts. In the double degree course you complete:
 

  • A. Science specified study
    This will provide you with the mathematical or statistical foundation for your study of science and address the nature of science and its communication. It will also expose you to several science disciplines contributing breadth to your understanding of science and giving you the opportunity to learn about several disciplines before finalising your choice of major.
  • B. Science listed Major
    This will provide you with a focused program of study that will develop your expertise in one discipline area. You will learn to develop, apply and communicate an advanced level of understanding of the concepts and theoretical frameworks that constitute the knowledge base of the discipline.
    The Bachelor of Biomedical Science course is a specialist course that provides an interdisciplinary approach to study of biomedical science, with five central themes: molecular and cellular biology, body systems, infection and immunity, disease and society, and diagnostic and research tools.  These themes are interwoven in units throughout the course.
  • A. Molecular and cellular biology
    Through these studies you will learn how the cell functions and replicates itself in health and disease, particularly considering the structure of the cell and its evolution, the function of cells, DNA, genes and proteins, and the regulation of metabolism.
  • B. Body systems
    This theme addresses the principles of major body systems. You will learn how cells come together to form tissues and organs and how they work together in the body to provide it with its metabolic needs and remove waste products. You will study how structure follows function; homeostasis; the nutritional and GI system; the neural system and senses; endocrine, reproductive and renal systems; and cardiovascular and respiratory systems.
  • C. Infection and Immunity
    The focus of these studies is the functional immune system of multicellular organisms and the disease states that result from pathogen infection and from autoimmunity.  You will learn about molecular genetics and recombinant DNA (both important tools for the study of microbial disease and immunity), inflammation and disease, and infection and infection control.
  • D. Disease and society
    In these studies you will learn about disease states that result from abnormal function in various body systems, including the cellular, genetic and molecular causes of the disease, with a focus on mechanisms of disease and patterns of disease and treatment. In studying the basis for human disease, you will also consider the societal and personal impacts of past, present and future diseases and the social, economic and environmental factors that are determinants of health.
  • E. Diagnostic and research tools
    These studies address both the molecular and cellular tools, including specialist imaging techniques, that can be used to study and diagnose diseases.

All Monash undergraduate courses require you to have successfully completed a minimum of an Australian Year 12 qualification (or equivalent) and achieve the required academic entry score. Most Monash faculties generally use your most recent studies for admission however other guidelines may apply where your prior qualification may be considered.
