Honours in Ecology, Environment and Evolution offers a dynamic program across a range of specialisations: botanical, genetic, zoological, or a project that is multidisciplinary. You may also have the opportunity to undertake your project in collaboration with institutions, such as the Arthur Rylah Institute (ARI), Museum Victoria, the Murray-Darling Freshwater Research Centre(MDFRC), the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria, or Melbourne Zoo.
The major assessment task is an independent research thesis, worth 70% of the overall Honours mark. The coursework component consists of three main tasks each worth 10%: a major literature review, grant application and final seminar presentation.
To be eligible for Honours, students must have an average grade of at least 70% in third year (60 credit points), and an average of at least 65% across all third year units.
Students transferring to La Trobe University for Honours are encouraged to contact an Honours Coordinator to discuss eligibility.
