Bachelor of Environmental Biology

The Bachelor of Environmental Biology focuses strongly on ecosystem protection and management, and in practical experience undertaken during field excursions. Students are introduced to the latest findings by lecturers actively engaged in research solutions to environmental problems such as climate change and sustainability. Studies focus on the foundation components of the natural systems, how these systems work, and how detrimental impacts on them can be assessed and recovered.

This course gives students a thorough understanding of the way living organisms function in terrestrial and aquatic environments, acquisition of skills to study them and the ability to detect and assess detrimental effects on the environment such as climate change, pollution and human resource use. Students learn these skills and concepts through a dynamic combination of theory, field and laboratory experiences. Excursions undertaken in the seniors years are particularly valued for the opportunities they provide to consolidate knowledge, apply new skills and learning through experience.
