Program description

The Bachelor of Environmental Science (Honours) allows you to enhance your understanding of a chosen discipline within environmental science, while building key research and transferable skills that enhance your employment options and prepare you for further study.

You’ve worked hard for your undergraduate degree. Why not take the next step with an honours degree that launches your career forward?

Honours is an optional year of specialised study that allows you to combine the theory and practical skills gained throughout your undergraduate studies. It’s an opportunity to showcase your expertise in a discipline you’re passionate about, and to develop invaluable research and life skills that will stay with you throughout your entire career.

With the support and supervision of experienced teachers who are leaders in their respective fields, you’ll be exposed to research of national and global significance in areas including:

  • behaviour, ecology, evolution and ecophysiology
  • ecological risk assessment
  • environmental management and sustainability
  • fisheries and aquaculture
  • marine and freshwater biology
  • wildlife and conservation biology.

The coursework component of the honours program equips you with essential knowledge in areas that underpin research – experimental design, quantitative analysis and scientific communication and ethics. The research project component enables you to develop the research skills necessary to investigate your area of interest.

In addition to being an ideal pathway to further study and research training (including masters and PhD programs), the Bachelor of Environmental Science (Honours) broadens your career options and allows you to graduate with specialised knowledge and experience that puts you ahead of the pack.
