This 1-year full-time or 2-year part-time course is offered by the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Technology at Launceston.

The BEnvSc(Hons) degree provides a pathway from undergraduate studies in environmental science to post-graduate research in environmental science or alternatively the opportunity for students to further develop and apply their skills on a research project in preparation for a career in environmental science.

The educational objective of the BEnvSc(Hons) degree is to equip students with the fundamental knowledge, skills, capabilities and awareness which are necessary for undertaking research in environmental science. Students will receive advanced training and consequent in-depth knowledge within a particular discipline covered by environmental science. Research techniques developed will assist candidates to gain entry to postgraduate studies or employment in research.

Career outcomes

The Bachelor of Environmental Science (Honours) degree leads to many opportunities for a career within government organisations, industrial companies, consultants, and community groups who seek environmental graduates for their research, analytical and computer skills which they can apply to the design and implementation of environmental assessment strategies, managing monitoring programs and reporting on compliance with environmental regulations.
