Conservation Biology is the study of the Earth's biodiversity and is concerned with managing and protecting species and ecosystems.
Conservation Biologists work with government and non-government agencies to explore the interaction of scientific research with policy and management to develop strategies to minimize the impact of humans on their environment.
The Bachelor of Conservation Biology (Honours) is a practical degree that will give you the knowledge and skills to become a conservation biologist and undertake postgraduate research.
Your first-year studies in biology, chemistry, and earth and environmental sciences lead to second-year studies in how organisms function, plant and animal ecology, and landscape science.
In the third year, your studies will focus on research training and experience in conservation biology and ecology, preparing you for Honours in the fourth year, where you will expand your knowledge even further through targeted research.
