By bridging the perceived divide between the humanities and the sciences, La Trobe’s unique Bachelor of Humanities, Innovation and Technology is a response to calls from leading scientists for graduates able to understand the technical and human side of a problem and how to solve it using ethical reasoning. The combination of social, legal, commercial and scientific knowledge prepares graduates to be future leaders in jobs that don’t yet exist.
