The Bachelor of Environmental Science with Honours is a year of full-time (or part-time equivalent) directed independent study, which is offered to those students who demonstrate a meritorious performance in their undergraduate studies.
The honours degree may be a completion point for those students who are seeking an opportunity to focus on an area of environmental science or management and improve their employment prospects. Alternatively, honours may provide a starting point for entry into postgraduate studies.
Students are introduced to research methodology under the close supervision of a member of staff who possesses expertise in the chosen area of study. It involves a close working relationship, and mutual responsibilities, between supervisor and student.
Prior to lodging an application, interested applicants must contact the University to discuss their eligibility and to find a suitable honours supervisor for their proposed honours topic. For more information refer to the School of Environment, Science and Engineering Honours Handbook.
