Is environmental science and management for you?
The Bachelor of Environmental Science and Management is a science degree with an emphasis on understanding environment processes, problems and management. The degree is divided into three parts: compulsory courses, a major sequence, and electives. You will have the opportunity to specialise in one of the following majors: earth systems, ecosystems and biodiversity, marine science, and sustainability.
Protecting our future
Australia is one of the most ecologically diverse countries in the world. It is home to more than one million species of plants and animals and has some of the oldest land surface on the planet. However, as the driest continent in the world with the least fertile soils, Australia also faces major challenges in supporting its human population while protecting its ecological resources. Australia also shares in large-scale global challenges such as climate change. It is vital that we act now to understand and manage these key environmental problems, or we face a bleak future.
Diverse and flexible areas of study
Studying environmental science and management means you will be exposed to a full range of environmental science topics, including ecology, environmental ethics, measurement and monitoring of earth and biological processes, environmental impact assessment and environmental legislation. An aspect unique to our degree is that management courses are carefully woven into the degree, meaning that you can study both science and management.
You can become a member of the Environmental Science and Management Students Association and get proactive! Learn how you can become more practically involved in real environmental issues, particularly through raising environmental awareness in the community.
