MDDU-EBIOL v.2 Environmental Biology Double Degree Major (BSc/BA, BSc/BCom)
This major/stream is part of a larger course. Information is specific to the major/stream, please refer to the course for more information.
This Environmental Biology double degree major has a strong practical emphasis, with students often being able to undertake work with members of the outside community, thus establishing a strong bridge between the University and potential employers. There is a requirement to participate in field trips for many of the course units. This gives students ample opportunity to observe organisms in their normal habitats, with the greater depth of understanding that this brings.
Major/Stream Entry and Completion Details
Mathematics Application ATAR and an ATAR Science course.
Major/Stream Learning Outcomes
A graduate of this course can:
1. apply fundamental biological principles and concepts in theoretical, practical and vocational situations
2. explain and apply the scientific method
3. collect biological data and locate, extract and critically appraise existing scientific knowledge to analyse problems and formulate solutions
4. communicate biological information concisely and accurately using written, visual, and verbal means appropriate to the audience
5. employ new and established technologies to collect and interpret biological data; demonstrate competency in statistics, computing, and other relevant technologies, at an appropriate level
6. take responsibility for their personal educational development by applying independent study and time management skills
7. consider biological issues from a global perspective, recognising the importance of national and international standards for collecting and reporting data
8. respect and recognise the responsibilities of professional scientists in society, both nationally and internationally; value environmental, indigenous and other community perspectives
9. work independently and in teams to demonstrate employment ready skills such as negotiation, leadership, professional behaviour and ethical practices
