Cell and Developmental Biology
Where will this take me?
After completing the Cell and Developmental Biology major, you’ll be well placed to move into the workforce, further study, or graduate research.
With this major, you could pursue careers in research or diagnostic laboratories, biotechnology firms, government agencies, agribusiness, or the medicolegal area.
You can complete an honours year in Cell and Developmental Biology as part of your bachelors degree, or you can immediately move into graduate studies.
If you wish to continue your studies at graduate level, this major is a great lead-in to many specialist science and health degrees. Graduate degrees you could consider include:
- Doctor of Dental Surgery
- Doctor of Medicine
- Doctor of Optometry
- Doctor of Physiotherapy
- Master of Biomedical Science
- Master of Biotechnology
- Master of Science (BioSciences).
Depending on the subjects you take in your undergraduate degree, a range of other graduate study options may be possible – in fields as diverse as medicine, science and technology, health sciences, teaching, law, business, humanities and more.
If you complete an honours year or a masters course with a significant research component, you can go on to study a PhD (Doctor of Philosophy), or another graduate research program.
This will set you up for a rewarding career in research with a university, research institute, hospital or biotechnology company.
