Undergraduate Courses

The environment undergraduate courses and programs provide students with knowledge and expertise to become effective professional contributors to the fields of environmental research, education and policy, to commerce and industry, and to the wider community. The breadth of the discipline, together with the practical skills embedded in the programs, provides a basis for the confident application of skills to address current and emerging environmental issues. 

Honours Degree

Graduates who have completed their undergraduate degree at a high level, and wish to develop their research skills in a particular field, can take a further year of study at Honours level. All courses in the Honours Degree share a common course structure, which requires students to do two core topics and a major research project. Students may commence their program of studies at the start of the academic year or at mid-year in full-time or part-time mode, and undergo an induction program run by us whenever they commence.
