Overview

Bachelor of Environmental Science

If you have a passion for wildlife and conservation and are keen for a career outdoors, the Bachelor of Environmental Science will see you playing an active part in caring for the environment now and into the future. 

The degree lets you explore a wide variety of areas including but not limited to: applied ecology, ecological conservation, vegetation and wildlife management, reserve management, coastal marine science, sustainability, land care and land management.

You’ll benefit from studying in our nation’s capital; the central focus of environmental issues in Australia, and will have access to UC’s world-class laboratories for eco-chemistry, fresh water ecology, wildlife genetics and biodiversity. 

The faculty has strong partnership links with government and natural resource management organisations, as well as UC’s Institute for Applied Ecology (IAE), which has a reputation for providing high quality research with an applied focus to solve environmental problems.

Work Integrated Learning:

Work Integrated Learning (WIL) is a central component of this course and you’ll undertake a range of practical activities designed to prepare you for a sustainable career in environmental science, such as exposure to entrepreneurship in science and pitching ideas for funding and patenting, and guest lectures by esteemed industry professionals.

The Environmental Science program is closely integrated with the IAE – one of our many research centres. Researchers within the IAE engage with on-ground managers and policymakers, giving you access to unique group research projects and training opportunities on campus in a leading research facility. You’ll also undertake a range of exciting field trips to national parks in locations such as Willandra, the Snowy Mountains and the NSW South Coast.

You’ll have the opportunity to complete a professional work placement and will be actively encouraged to volunteer in local, regional and international environmental programs. 

Previous students have undertaken internships with companies including the Centre for Australian National Biodiversity Research, CSIRO, ACT Parks and Wildlife, Department of Agriculture and Water Resources, Department of the Environment and Energy, Questacon, National Museum of Australia, environmental NGOs and the university sector.
