Undertaking an honours degree in the College of Science and Engineering at Flinders University provides many opportunities for students to experience the intellectual fertility that arises from a broad base of disciplines all working together, that are normally separated into departments in many universities. The honours degrees are designed to give a rounded experience in biological research including gaining more sophisticated skills in communication, scientific writing, research and project planning. They provide a sound basis for future development in a research career or in other careers where critical and analytical skills are valued.
The honours degrees are open to students from other Universities, provided that the student has an appropriate undergraduate degree and also meets other requirements. Honours is also available as a part-time course over two years. The full-time or part time degrees may be commenced in either February or July. Many projects involving field studies and experiments are best started in August because many ecosystems are most active in the spring or summer months.
