This degree is being phased out. No new enrolments will be permitted from 2015. Graduates of the Bachelor of Medicinal Chemistry will graduate with majors in chemistry and biochemistry or chemistry and microbiology with an additional area of specialisation in drug design. With a cross-disciplinary background and enhanced skills at the boundaries of these traditional disciplines, graduates will be particularly sought after by the biotechnology industry.
