Our forests are the lungs of the Earth. They are also an invaluable resource for industry and society. The size of Australia's plantation estate is twice what it was a decade ago, requiring large areas of native forest to be under management - not just for wood, but also for biodiversity conservation, catchment protection, fire management, carbon storage and other purposes.
This degree takes your foundational scientific skills up several notches, preparing you with the knowledge to consider and address resource management across agribusiness and native forests.
As you explore forest biodiversity, conservation, plantation management, catchment protection, agribusiness and native forestry, this breadth of study will prepare you for a career in a vital and varied industry.
Graduates can consider options in park management, land rehabilitation, plantation forestry and other areas of forest work. This degree is also a pathway to further study in the Master of Forest Science and Management.
