The Bachelor of Applied Science (Professional Honours in Environmental Management) is designed for those with a 3-year Bachelor degree to undertake honours-level studies in environmental management. It is appropriate for students wishing to add an environmental focus to an undergraduate degree from any discipline, or those wishing to further develop knowledge and skills in environmental management. The course provides a broad, interdisciplinary approach to environmental management, and articulates with a Master of Environmental Management. Students have the opportunity to expand their knowledge of natural and cultural values; approaches to managing ecosystems; the social, cultural and institutional contexts in which environments are managed; and methods used to address issues associated with biodiversity conservation and sustainability. Emphasis is placed on problem based learning and integrating contributions from the biophysical and social sciences. Practical and field-based activities are important parts of the course. Students engage in a placement with a government, private sector or community-based organisation in which they undertake an environmental management project.
