What will I study?

Do you have the passion and drive to address the world's environmental challenges? To do so you will need a range of scientific skills and knowledge and an understanding of legal, political and social aspects of environmental management. Through the Bachelor of Environmental Science (Honours) you will address these topics and develop skills in systems analysis and planning. Graduates in environmental toxicology quantify and monitor toxic substances in the environment and evaluate their effects on biota and humans. At the interface of environmental sciences, biology, chemistry and toxicology, this major addresses the need of societies to identify the problems associated with environmental toxins, to facilitate assessment of risks and to implement regulation. As an environmental science graduate you will be equipped to contribute rigorous analyses to environmental decision making and management to address global environmental challenges.
