The School of Molecular Sciences is in the Faculty of Science, Technology & Engineering and consists of the Department of Biochemistry, Chemistry, Genetics and the School of Pharmacy.
The School has a very strong research culture and attracts over $7 million in outside research grants per annum. The School has also been very active in developing new initiatives in teaching. These include the development of Medical Sciences and Chemical Science degrees, a new Immunology subject as well as the 2-year Masters in Biotechnology and Bioinformatics. A new Medicinal Chemistry course is now being developed. It goes without saying that our teaching is informed by research.
The School offers a range of courses at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels specialising in the scientific study of human behaviour, including fields such as cognitive psychology, developmental psychology, social psychology, and behavioural neuroscience.
At the undergraduate level, the School offers a course with a strong focus on psychology, the Bachelor in Psychological Science degree. This degree provides a particularly good springboard for postgraduate training in professional psychology. It is also an excellent foundation for many other careers, as understanding human behaviour is central to so many fields, such as human resource management or counselling. The attributes our graduates acquire include excellent problem-solving and communication skills, and sound teamwork skills, which are highly sought after by prospective employers.
La Trobe Law is known for the achievements and quality of our graduates and prides itself on having established and maintained a friendly environment that makes the study of law here a rewarding experience. We see all our students as members of the School, we treat all our visitors as friends, and we endeavour to maintain a lifelong association with our past graduates.
La Trobe School of Law is a law school of international standing. We believe that, in the contemporary world, it is important that law graduates have an understanding of legal issues from a global perspective. We further believe that skills in critical analysis, established solidly upon good legal knowledge and understanding, are what law graduates will need most in their future career development. While equipping students with the requisite skills and knowledge to practise law, we emphasise hands-on experiences such as clinical legal education, internship and placement programs and international exposure such as student exchange.
Our teaching is informed by high quality scholarly research, and fostering of inter-personal skills. Our highly qualified teaching staff are involved in international activities at the highest level, while research is distinguished by its strong commitment to access and justice and its global and comparative outlook. La Trobe Law produces expert research that informs government policy and public interest advocacy across a broad range of areas.
