Environmental Science (major in Environmental Science)

Program

The environmental science program will provide you with the understanding and skills needed to find solutions to environmental problems, combining geosciences, agriculture and biology. You will develop the knowledge and skills to find solutions to complex environmental problems.

Develop the technical laboratory and field skills to measure, monitor and analyse environmental problems; learn about and understand the policy and regulatory contexts in which environmental scientists work; design and analyse experiments; and utilise spatial data using mapping and analysis tools.

You will develop a strong multidisciplinary scientific understanding of regional, national and global environmental issues. For more information on the program structure and content, view the Science Undergraduate Handbook.

A program in Environmental Science allows you develop an additional level of expertise in field by building upon the embedded major with additional units of study.
