Program handbook

Description

The University of Newcastle’s Bachelor of Environmental Science and Management is the degree for those with a passion for the environment and an interest in saving our planet. With the alarming rate of environmental impacts from climate change, land clearing and deforestation, human induced impacts to the biosphere, the polluting of our oceans and our urgent biodiversity crisis; now is the time to upskill and play your role in protecting our natural world into the future. The degree explores the science behind human induced impacts to our environment and fosters management-based skills and knowledge to manage our environment in a sustainable way into the future. Students will learn from world-leading scientists in the field. You will gain scientific skills in environmental science including essential laboratory and field-based skills in diverse environments from terrestrial forests to coastal and marine ecosystems. The degree’s management focus is unique in Australia, offering students essential knowledge and skills in managing environments including environment impact assessment, policy and legislation and environmental ethics. Further, students can specialise in one of four specialist areas to dovetail into a future career destination including sustainability, natural resources and hazards, ecosystems and biodiversity, or marine science and management. Finally, our program offers a comprehensive work-integrated learning experience, allowing students to gain valuable workplace experience to be job-ready by graduation. If your career goal is to make a difference globally in the ongoing protection of our fragile environment, this degree program is for you!

International students

All International Students enrolled in the program will be provided with an orientation to familiarise them with the rules, expectations, facilities and services offered by the University. Please visit our International Students website to find out more about the support services available to international students.


Additional support

AccessAbility provides advice and reasonable adjustments to Students with a medical or health condition or disability. If you require adjustments to undertake your program, contact the Student Support Advisors - AccessAbility before semester or early in the semester. They will work with the College or School to ensure that this happens in a timely manner.

Please note: All students must fulfil the inherent requirements of the programs and courses they are undertaking. While reasonable adjustments can be made, these adjustments cannot compromise academic integrity. It is the student's responsibility to check all the requirements of courses, and consider the effects of any medical condition or disability on their ability to complete course requirements. More information is available online.
