Environmental management and ecology

Why study honours in Environmental management and ecology?

The goal of the Honours year is to add a component of research training to the Bachelor of Science in Environmental Management and Ecology. Students from any University are welcome to apply for the honours program as long as they meet the entry requirements. The course includes advanced theory, training in research methods, writing and presentation and a research project culminating in a thesis.

The Honours course takes 39 weeks and has two intakes: January (thesis due in November) or July (thesis due in April). Please note that some projects are more suited to one intake due to seasonal factors.

Career Opportunities

An Honours qualification demonstrates the capacity to undertake sustained, rigorous research. Employers know that Honours graduates can think critically, work independently, and that they have the skills to communicate research findings to a wide audience.
