C10227v3 Bachelor of Science in Environmental Forensics

This course provides graduates with skills for careers in the new and fast-developing discipline of environmental forensics that is integral to the processes of environmental protection. It focuses on studies of living and non-living components of the environment and on the impacts of human use of environmental resources on the ecosystem.

The course has an interdisciplinary approach that allows students to gain skills and knowledge through theoretical and practice-based field and laboratory studies of ecology and environmental chemistry, and to understand the importance of investigatory scientific evidence in the legal and regulatory framework that governs the environmental protection process.

This cross-disciplinary course gives students the opportunity to combine studies of environmental biology, chemistry and law with a choice of further specialisations via a sub-major. It is attractive to students who are interested in the broad application of science to other disciplines without necessarily undertaking a combined degree.
