Overview

Bachelor of Environmental Science (Honours)

Environmental science is a practical and multi-disciplinary science that spans the biophysical, Geo-chemical and social sciences and focuses on the interaction between the living and non-living elements of the world, including the role of human impacts. 

Environmental scientists assess, research and manage a wide range of environmental issues and provide solutions to emerging environmental problems that face current and future societies. 

These include climate change, biodiversity, water quality, resource management, waste and pollution and environmental protection and conservation.

The Bachelor of Environmental Science (Honours) integrates material from a wide variety of disciplines relevant to the environment and its management. These include science, engineering, management, law, technology and social science. 

You will be equipped with the knowledge of ethical, social, economic and political aspects of environmental issues. These skills will help you work with other professionals in the environmental field, such as engineers and policymakers.

The superb local marine life, coastal landscapes, nearby rain-forest escarpment, and fresh-water and terrestrial ecosystems means that Wollongong is ideally located for environmental science studies. 

Students are exposed first-hand to a wide range of urban, rural and ecological issues during practical fieldwork components of the degree. 

You will graduate with real-world experience and will be ready for a career in government, educational and research organizations, private industry, and consultancies.
