Honours in Ecology, Environment and Evolution offers a dynamic program across a range of specialisations: botany, genetics, zoology, or a project that is multidisciplinary.
Honours projects are available to students in EEE at both the Melbourne and Albury Wodonga campuses, as well as through research affiliates such as the Arthur Rylah Institute and Centre for Freshwater Ecosystems (CFE). You may also have the opportunity to undertake your project in collaboration with institutions such as Museums Victoria, the the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria, or Zoos Victoria.
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.
