Join Massey’s unique Bachelor of Science (Microbiology) to explore and understand microbes in the environment, from the soil to the air, and in the human body.
Microbiology is an essential science that helps us understand the microbes in the environment, including microbes that dwell in the soil, air and water, in our food and inside people, animals and plants.
Microbiology can impact on many different areas, such as:
In the Massey Bachelor of Science (Microbiology) you will learn about microbiology hand-in-hand with other science areas such as veterinary, animal, and environmental science.
This allows you to explore microbiological disciplines, including environment/ecology, medical, veterinary and food microbiology, and biotechnology.
Some of the topics taught in microbiology courses include:
Exposure and time in labs is a large component of the university course and on par with what is usually only seen in employment.
For example, you’ll get to do a lab-based simulated research project, such as identification of microbes in environment or food, or producing useful proteins in bacterial culture.
As a graduate, you’ll have lab confidence and the unique ability to show potential employers that you are skilled in lab-based experiments.
You will complete research projects as part of a summer studentship with the Massey University researchers.
You’ll gain a real-world insight into the area and connections with potential future employers.
Note: July start will take 3.5 years to complete.
