This one-year full-time or two-year part-time course is offered internally at Hobart and Launceston.

The course aims to provide:

  2. Training in research techniques relevant to that discipline to enable either postgraduate research entry or employment in research.

Career outcomes

Honours graduates are highly competitive for professional careers in their area of specialisation. Employment opportunities also exist in more general areas as detailed under discipline entries in the Handbook.

Professional Recognition

Graduates of the BNatEnvWildSt(Hons) may be eligible for membership of a number of professional organisations. Specific details are provided under individual discipline entries in the Handbook.

Course structure

Each candidate will conduct research and write a thesis. The subject of this thesis requires approval from the Degree Coordinator. In addition, candidates MAY BE required to study and pass either advanced level units, or a maximum of 12.5% of undergraduate units with extra assessment requirements, and/or undertake other activities, which may include the preparation of literature reviews, projects, reports, grant applications, position papers and seminars. Students should refer to the School entries in the 'Unit details' section for more information.

Honours candidates are accepted in all the schools of the University that offer an honours course with a research thesis appropriate to natural environments and wilderness.
