This dual degree challenges those with curious minds who want to engage in or support cutting edge scientific research and developments.

Medicinal Chemistry is an exciting, rapidly-expanding area within the broad discipline of Chemistry that has seen enormous growth recently both within Australia and globally. It includes the development of new pharmaceutical agents, from Concept to Clinic. Many different stages are involved; from the design and synthesis of novel drug candidates, to their biochemical effects, testing regimes and regulatory and ethical considerations. The Medicinal Chemistry program had been designed to ensure that graduates will have a strong background in contemporary biology, biochemistry and pharmacology, based upon a solid foundation of essential chemistry.

Combining this with a Bachelor of Laws also equips students with an understanding of the law, important in this industry, and provides graduates with a degree that is recognised as satisfying the academic requirements for admission as a legal practitioner in NSW. Through the law component, you’ll gain the skills required to deal with complex legal issues stemming from new industries, innovations and new social expectations as part of a progressive Law degree that is very attractive to future employers. You’ll use state-of-the-art technology and build extensive knowledge in a scientific field focusing on Medicinal Chemistry
