Environmental scientists are concerned with addressing the world’s biggest environmental challenges, including climate change impact, sustainability, ecosystems management, biodiversity preservation, clean water security, and food and planetary function.

Our Bachelor of Environmental Science (Honours) degree program will equip you with a range of scientific skills and knowledge to tackle these issues, as well as an understanding of the legal, political and social aspects of environmental management. 

You’ll study fundamental environmental processes, the way they can be described, monitored and predicted, and the effect of human impact on the physical and biological environment. Specialising in one of four key areas (Earth Resources, Ecology and Conservation, Environmental Toxicology or Natural Resource Science), you’ll study core and advanced science and regulatory topics, participate in field trips and complete a substantial research project that includes an environmental impact assessment or environmental audit.
