Why study Natural Systems and Wildlife?
The Natural Systems and Wildlife major teaches you to use scientific, social, economic and managerial information in natural systems and wildlife conservation and management. This major combines fundamental biological studies with multidisciplinary skills in environmental management, decision making, problem solving and policy analysis. The final year develops your ability to manage complex problems that threaten the health of natural systems.
The program's flexible structure allows you to transfer between fields up to the end of your fourth semester, with the possibility of full credit.
During your studies you will undertake a four-week field trip to western and northern Queensland to study the ecology and management of arid zones, the wet tropics, terrestrial and marine tropical environments. You will also undertake a 16 week integrated industry study in a related work situation where you will complete an approved project on natural systems and wildlife management.
Honours may be undertaken as part of the fourth year of the program.
