(See Graduate Diploma in Science with Honours )
These degrees provide both a general overview of Antarctic and Southern Ocean matters and specialist training in areas of the physical and biological sciences; policy and law; and polar and environmental technology.
The program has the flexibility to respond to the particular backgrounds and experience of each year's students and can be taken in one year full-time or two years part-time study. Candidature is open to graduates in all disciplines. Selection into the honours stream is based on the applicant's undergraduate record and work experience, if appropriate.
The honours degree is fully equivalent to an honours degree within a University School and satisfies the usual eligibility requirements for research higher degrees and postgraduate scholarships.
The first half of the program consists of a multi-disciplinary course in the form of seminar style sessions in four sub-disciplines: policy, life science, physical science and Antarctic operations. The remainder of the honours program requires the completion of an approved research project, with the results presented in a thesis. For students not taking honours, a reading thesis style specialist unit, supervised by an appropriate staff member, is undertaken. The coursework is assessed through a series of assignments, while the thesis is formally examined by internal and external experts.
Interested students are encouraged to contact the Institute of Antarctic and Southern Ocean Studies directly (ph) (03) 6226 2971.
Course specifications are detailed in the Calendar.
Graduates of the Honours program are eligible for membership of a variety of professional organisations, for instance: International Glaciological Society, American Geophysical Union, Australian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society, American Meteorological Society, Australian Marine Science Association, Australian Geological Society. The society or societies they may belong to depends somewhat on the nature of the research that they undertook.
The course leads to career opportunities in oceanography, glaciology, climate modelling, meteorology, ice core chemistry, sedimentology, marine biology, terrestrial ecology, international relations.
