Why study the Bachelor of Environmental Management (Honours)?

The Bachelor of Environmental Management (Honours) program prepares you to manage many of the environmental challenges faced by modern society both locally and globally, as we address fundamental issues of sustainability. The program bridges the gap between science and management, incorporating fundamental biophysical science with social science and multidisciplinary skills in environmental management, decision making and policy analysis.

The final capstone year of the degree focusses on integrating and applying the research and core knowledge skills acquired in the first three years. In this year you will develop your ability to manage complex real-world problems that affect a range of environments, from natural through to urban and industrial settings. Students with an adequate GPA from the first 3 years of study may elect to undertake an individual research thesis in their fourth year, or opt to undertake the industry oriented group research project.

Your study will go beyond a sound understanding of the natural sciences to include the techniques and approaches necessary to effectively integrate biophysical, social, cultural, economic, legal and management factors into solutions to complex environmental problems.

What you can study

The program offers two extended majors, Natural Systems & Wildlife or Sustainable Development. Further specialisation in your program, is also possible by taking a targeted range of elective courses. Possible fields of specialisation include: :

  • Business & Sustainability
  • Conservation & Wildlife Management
  • Environmental Monitoring and Assessment
  • Global Change
  • Marine and Coastal Management
  • Parks and Wildlife Management
  • Regional Natural Resource Management
  • Industrial Ecology and Cleaner Production

Placement courses

A compulsory industrial placement semester in your third year will provide you with experience in the workplace and an understanding of the factors involved in the operation and management of environmental issues.

In your final year you will undertake an in-depth research project or a case study in conjunction with an external client where your knowledge and skills will be applied to a realworld environmental problem. Through these experiences you will develop skills and attributes highly valued by employers.

Field work

There are opportunities to participate in field trips to a diverse range of environments across Queensland as well as international locations such as Vietnam and Hong Kong. Field work is an important part of many of our courses and allows you to observe environmental issues and the steps undertaken to combat them first hand.
