Program handbook

Description

Australia is home to some of the most unique and diverse coastlines and marine ecosystems in the world. By understanding the ecological, physical, conservation, societal and management issues we face in coastal and marine environments, such as climate change, pollution, urbanisation and conflicting users, we can help find solutions to these problems. From the first day in your program you will engage in practical, hands-on learning experiences, developing the fundamental skills needed for a career in coastal and marine science. You'll be learning from experts in marine, coastal and ecological fields, and engage with managers and policy makers from industry, government and the not-for-profit sectors, thus beginning the important process of establishing the professional networks that will be critical throughout your career. By the time you finish your Bachelor of Coastal and Marine Science, you will have the practical skills to make a difference in the world, and contribute new solutions to the many scientific challenges we face.


Program learning outcomes

On successful completion of the program students will have:

  • A broad and coherent knowledge of the key goods and services that coastal and marine ecosystems provide for the environment and human society from the local to global scale.
  • A critical understanding of evidence based scientific method, in particular with reference to coastal and marine ecosystems.
  • the skills to design, undertake, analyse, integrate and critically self-evaluate laboratory and/or field experiments, in relation to the wider scientific literature using appropriate techniques and approaches.
  • Effective communication, and be able to articulate scientific content to a diverse audience in a variety of ways including oral, written and visual means.
  • A clear understanding of the important role science communication plays in informing the general public, environmental managers and policy makers and how this can shape humans impact on the coastal and marine environment.
  • The ability to effectively perform tasks in a culturally diverse, multidisciplinary workplace.
  • Integrity. Graduates will understand and respect their own and others’ values, knowledge, ethics and opinions.
  • Professionalism. Graduates will perform in an ethical manner in a professional environment, considering societies cultural and legislative norms and requirements.
