Explore your passion for environmental management, sustainability and species conservation in our Bachelor of Environmental Science degree.
Develop foundational scientific knowledge and gain hands-on skills in state-of-the-art facilities and on field trips in the living laboratory of World Heritage rainforests, reefs and rivers that surround our campuses.
The course includes core units combined with a specialisation in either coastal management, environmental resource management, fisheries and aquaculture management or waste management and resource recovery.
Graduates are not just knowledgeable and innovative, but industry-ready, with practical skills to manage the environment for the future.
Coastal Management provides insights into processes that affect our use of the coastal zone. Students explore the impact of climate change, land use planning, protected area management, economics, and people in the coastal environment.
Environmental Resource Management focuses on conducting wildlife surveys, conserve fauna and flora and rehabilitating degraded land for future generations.
Fisheries and Aquaculture Management integrates fisheries biology, stock management, habitat protection, and aquaculture studies with environmental management. Students focus on developing strategies to maintain a sustainable fishery/ aquaculture enterprise. Some third-year subjects for this major will be taught as intensive residential courses at the National Marine Science Centre in Coffs Harbour.
Waste Management and Resource Recovery develops multidisciplinary skills that will support their innovation in providing solutions for dealing with waste and waste minimisation, now and in the future.
Students may also choose to study a self-directed Integrated Project or undertake an eight-week professional placement to gain industry experience. Interns can work with organisations across the environmental science spectrum including local, state or federal government agencies; private consultancies; or business enterprises in Australia or overseas.
