With the Biology major in the Bachelor of Science at the University of Southern Queensland, you will gain a broad knowledge of biology, chemistry and communications, as well as the option of more detailed knowledge in disciplines such as biochemistry, genetics, microbiology and physiology.
This degree will give you a strong grounding for various science-related careers or more specialised postgraduate studies.
You will explore topics in plant physiology, agronomy, plant-microbe interactions, soil science, genetics, and post-harvest technologies, all of which provide training and knowledge in a discipline critical to the Australian economy's health.
You will learn about the impacts of agricultural practices on soil, water and other species to enable you to contribute to the sustainability of the broader agricultural environment.
Recognition of prior learning or work experience:
