In planning for an environmental studies major, it is essential that you enrol in GEOS 1001/GEOS1901 ('Earth, Environment and Society') and at least one of the following units of study:
GEOS1002/1902, GEOS1003/1903, BIOL1001/1911/1991, BIOL1002/1902.
The core intermediate unit in environmental studies is GEOS2121/GEOS2921 ('Environmental and Resource Management'). All students wishing to complete the major must enrol in this unit. Your second year units will form the prerequisites for your third year units, so it is a good idea to plan ahead and have an idea of which senior units you plan on taking, in order to take the relevant prerequisites in your second year. You should consider the following units of study: BIOL2009/2909, BIOL2010/2910, BIOL2022/2922, BIOL2024/2924, GEOS2111/2911, GEOS2115/2915, GEOG2321, GOVT2228, LWSC2002, RESC2031.
To successfully complete your environmental studies major, you must take at least 24 credit points from the following units of study: ENVI3111/ENVI3911, ENVI3112/ENVI3912, ENVI3114, BIOL3007/BIOL3907, GEOS3014/GEOS3914, GEOS3520/GEOS3920, RSEC4231. This must include at least 12 credit points of ENVI-coded units.
