Overview

Bachelor of Science (Environmental Science)

We rely on our natural environment to sustain our lives and our lifestyles. 

We continually need to improve our understanding and management of the natural environment to balance our development with wise management while minimizing impacts and degradation.

An understanding of the mechanisms controlling environmental systems provides the skills required to undertake a great range of scientific, environmental planning and management and tackle problems such as:

Local water quality and ecosystem impacts, soil erosion, catchment and groundwater use, or adaptation to global climate change 

You will experience some of the most advanced laboratories and fieldwork opportunities in Australia and be taught by international staff who are at the top of their research fields. 

You will also stay in touch with the real world, as guest lectures, site visits and opportunities for work-integrated learning bring a strong industry flavour to the degree.
