Designed for students with an interest in aquatic ecosystems, the course introduces the biological and physical processes that occur in both marine and freshwater systems.
There is an emphasis on the continuity of these environments across the transition from freshwater to estuarine and into marine systems. Students develop skills that are required to understand and manage such systems. Students benefit from a learning environment inspired by world class research academics with strong industry and government links.
Graduates of Marine and Freshwater Biology will possess skills that are applicable in a wide range of aquatic science professions in research, industry, teaching and government agencies. These may include careers in marine and coastal management, fisheries research and management, marine biology, wetland ecology and water resource management.
