Bachelor of Science (Earth and Environmental Systems)
Southern Cross University - Lismore

Course outline

The Bachelor of Science (Earth and Environmental Systems) provides a strong foundation in science, including field and laboratory experimentation and analytical techniques, as well as socioecological systems, management and critical thinking. The Earth and Environmental Systems specialisation develops skills and understanding of environmental science and management. Specialist units cover ecology, ecosystem regeneration, biogeochemistry, modelling and resource management (including water, catchments and waste/resources in the circular economy). Students may choose from a range of elective units, including ecological economics, wildlife conservation, and protected area management. This degree is characterised by a high level of practical and field experience, making the most of our easy access to a variety of subtropical terrestrial, coastal and marine ecosystems. This course can also be studied online. Some units require attendance at on-campus workshops. For more course information, visit Bachelor of Science at Southern Cross University.
