A commitment to the environment and sustainability for the future is a key reason why you should consider studying ecology, environment and evolution at La Trobe University.
Our department assembles scientists in ecology, evolution, biodiversity, botany, zoology and environmental science to expand the frontiers of knowledge with research. Our work is strongly grounded in empirical enquiry and asks fundamental and applied questions, using a diversity of organisms ranging from microbes to charismatic megafauna. Our research strongly influences our teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
We train and specifically develop the skills of graduates in plant and animal identification, field survey skills and the latest laboratory techniques. At undergraduate level, we run a variety of dedicated field trips throughout the year.
Students completing honours in Ecology, Environment and Evolution can study in a variety of specialisation areas including botany, genetics, zoology, and environmental science, or undertake research in a multidisciplinary field. Find out more on about our honours program and some of the projects currently on offer.
Postgraduate degrees are available in the fields of botany, zoology, genetics, ecology, evolution and environmental science.
