Objectives:
This combined degree will provide graduates with a thorough knowledge of tourism management and environmental science. Students will acquire a broad base of theoretical knowledge and practical skills to enable them to gain professional employment in private or public organizations, or to proceed to higher levels of research training. Innovative and flexible teaching methods have been designed to enhance the overall learning experience, and to develop key attributes such as the ability to think creatively, solve problems, work effectively, independently or in teams and be sensitive to and understand other cultures and environments. The Environmental Science (Environmental Management) course is a professionally oriented, multidisciplinary course that enables students to acquire a broad base of theoretical knowledge and practical skills in unique environments of the Northern Territory. It includes a strong focus on environmental science and management in tropical and desert environments in the Australian and Asia-Pacific region. The environmental component of the course provides students with a thorough knowledge of environmental science and management, together with the ability to access information efficiently and apply scientific methodologies. Students also explore the wider significance of human impacts on environmental change, including climate change and variability, population pressure and resource utilisation, water resources, invasive species, loss of soil health, modified fire regimes, as well as relationships between people and their landscapes. The tourism component of the course provides students with the essential knowledge and skills to progress towards managerial roles. A sound knowledge of the tourism industry is provided with a particular focus on the management of tourism within tourism businesses, markets, communities, regions and destinations. Areas of environmental significance in terms of nature based, eco based and cultural based tourism are also emphasised. A combination of international and local resources is used to enable students to develop a comprehensive knowledge of the industry. Industry experience is encouraged. Graduates of this combined degree are awarded both the Bachelor of Business in Tourism Management and the Bachelor of Environmental Science (Environmental Management).
