Through the Bachelor of Environmental Science (Honours), students will address a range of scientific skills and knowledge and an understanding of legal, political and social aspects of environmental management and develop skills in systems analysis and planning. Study fundamental environmental processes, the way they can be described, monitored and predicted, and the effect of human impact on the physical and biological environment. Specialise in one of four key areas of Environmental Science - Earth Resources; Ecology and Conservation; Environmental Toxicology; and Natural Resource Science. In each area students will study core and advanced science and regulatory topics, participate in environmental science field trips and complete a substantial research project in either an environmental impact assessment or an environmental audit. As an Environmental Science Graduate, students will be equipped to contribute rigorous analyses to environmental decision making and management to address global environmental challenges.
