Bachelor of Biological Science and Master of Biological Science

This Combined Bachelor's and Master's (CBM) is a four-year accelerated program for those with an ATAR of 90 or above. Over the first three years you’ll have the option to complete an extended major in Wildlife Conservation or Biodiversity and Evolution, and some units from the Master of Biological Science. You can then choose to exit after three years with an Advanced Bachelor's Degree in Biological Science, or continue with the Master of Biological Science and be awarded a Bachelor of Biological Science and a Master of Biological Science at the end of the four years.

By completing this Combined Bachelor's and Master's course you will graduate with both a Bachelor of Biological Science and a Master of Biological Science .

In your first three years, you will complete your selected major in the Wildlife Conservation Extended Major or Biodiversity and Evolution Extended Major , followed by a semester of postgraduate study. Gain an appreciation of how living organisms, ranging from microbes to megaflora and megafauna, grow, reproduce, adapt and evolve. You will learn how species and ecological communities can be managed, conserved and restored, using techniques ranging from genetic analysis to data collection from whole populations and ecosystems, to big data synthesis science.

You will then complete a final year of postgraduate study in the Master of Biological Science which will provide you with the ability to extend your biological and analytical knowledge and skills obtained from the undergraduate program and the opportunity to develop independent thinking. You will have the opportunity to explore and focus on areas of interest and specialise in Conservation Biology, Ecology or Zoology.
