The Science with Honours degree offered at the Southern Cross University may be a completion point for those students who are seeking an opportunity to focus on an area of environmental, marine or forest science or management and improve their employment prospects. Alternatively, honours may provide a pathway into postgraduate studies.
Studying honours involves a close working relationship, and mutual responsibilities, between supervisor and student. Students are introduced to research methodology under the close supervision of a member of staff with expertise in the chosen area of study.
In the research component, students can apply their knowledge and technical abilities in a supervised research project and develop skills in: data acquisition, design experimentation, problem solving and critical thinking, project implementation, risk assessment and ethical approval process applications, and communicating research outcomes to various audiences.
Interested applicants need to contact the University to discuss their eligibility and to find a suitable honours supervisor for their proposed honours topic prior to lodging their application.
Depending on their area of research, graduates are suited to careers within the public and private sectors.
Graduates also have opportunities to develop careers as researchers and can aim for further research qualifications by undertaking a PhD.
