About this course

  • Studies in this discipline are available in both the Bachelor of Science and the Bachelor of Biomedicine.
  • The Pathology major will help you understand disease from a molecular, cellular, tissue, functional, biochemical and immunological perspective. Knowledge will be integrated from a range of disciplines from Human Biology to Molecular Genetics.
  • Employing the newest research techniques available, you will explore the various methods used in finding answers to some of these questions in the research laboratory, and begin to understand how these techniques are being deployed to solve disease-related problems.


  • A major in Pathology can open up career opportunities in a range of laboratory settings. These include research laboratories in universities, hospitals or research institutes; diagnostic laboratories in hospitals and private diagnostic pathology services; and biotechnology laboratories. You could also find work or undertake further study in a broad range of areas, such as education, the pharmaceutical or scientific equipment industries, journalism, or publishing.
  • This major gives you the background to undertake further graduate research training in pathology.
  • In completing a Pathology major you will learn about pathology, but you will not become a pathologist. This job title is given to those who have completed graduate studies in medicine, followed by several further years of specialist pathology studies while working in a hospital pathology department.
