Summary

The Bachelor of Environmental Science is a unique undergraduate program directly integrated to the protection and conservation of our regional, rural and national environment. It provides graduates with a strong scientific understanding of local to global environmental issues and their management. The program offers a wide range of flexible and personal learning opportunities to develop advanced scientific knowledge and field and laboratory skills related to ecological conservation, air, land, water, plant and wildlife management and protection. Students will engage and work with environmental practitioners, industry and regulators to solve the problems of today with innovative solutions whilst gaining the core attributes to be job ready in a wide range of careers. Local and international field trips give valuable hands on experience.

The Bachelor of Environmental Science provides opportunity for specialisation or majors in conservation ecology, envirobusiness, natural resources management, and remediation and restoration. The program allows a wide choice of elective units in soil, ecological restoration, conservation biology, water, wildlife or vegetation. A fourth year is required for Honours.

An Honours year is available to students with a GPA of 5.5 or better, or a credit average in at least 24 credit points at 300-level in environmental science units. Study leads to the award of Bachelor of Science with Honours with specialisation in the environmental science discipline chosen for study. The BSc(Hons) degree can lead to further postgraduate study.
