The Applied Science (Environmental Science) program offered at the University of Tasmania has a strong focus on aquatic science, chemical monitoring and environmental management and overarches a number of the University's theme areas, particularly the Environment, and Antarctic and Marine Studies theme areas.
The degree also provides a nexus with research programs in the Schools of Chemistry (environmental chemistry, ACROSS) and Geography and Environmental Studies (coastal and catchment management, forest ecology and agroforestry), as well as institutes within the University (IMAS, AMC NCMCRS).
This course specifically aims to provide students with competencies, skills, knowledge and awareness, which will prepare them for employment as environmental scientists. The program also develops a wide range of general abilities including communication, analytical and problem solving skills that are widely valued by employers.
The degree will prepare students for a wide range of careers in industry, government, private consulting firms, non-profit organisations and educational institutions performing duties such as environmental and natural resource management, pollution monitoring and environmental impact assessments, water and waste water management, and policy analysis and implementation. An educational background in environmental science will be attractive to a wide range of employers given the impact of environmental issues on most employment sectors.
