This course focuses on Environmental Processes and Impacts. This multidisciplinary course provides training in analytical processes and their application to detection, measurement, pathways and impact of disturbance in the environment - with focus on northern Australia. The interdependence of physicochemical and biological assessment in environmental forensics is a common theme running through the units and students gain expertise in both areas, including the application of molecular tools. To complement this bio-analytical approach the course also offers units that explore source, fate, transport and ecological effects of environmental disturbance. The Bachelor of Environmental Science (Environmental Forensics) provides pathways into environmental science positions with industry, government regulators and consulting agencies. Graduates of this course may also be eligible to undertake postgraduate research in a range of fields from chemistry through to molecular biology with the opportunity to work at the leading edge of environmental science.
Entry Requirements:
This course is no longer available for admission. It is only open to existing students who have already been offered a place and completed one or more units of study.

Course Description:
Course Structure

The course consists of common units and core units that are common to environmental science studies in the School of Science and Primary Industries. Students then select a study pathway from the environmental forensics specialisation options offered as well as electives from any area of study within the University. The course structure reflects the multidisciplinary nature of environmental forensics in practice and it enables students to develop study pathways for a variety of career choices.

The Bachelor of Science (Honours) is available for suitable candidates with a Bachelor of Environmental Science (Environmental Forensics).

The information provided for this course was valid for the final year of enrolment. Students continuing in this course in 2007, 2008 or 2009 may find there have been some changes to the unit availability. Students should, in the first instance, refer to the recommended study plan in the newest version of this course to make their unit selection for 2009.
