Deakin's Bachelor of Environmental Science (Marine Biology) will provide you with a unique opportunity to study temperate marine biology, in a marine environment that has some of the highest biological diversity in Australia.
You will undertake fieldwork in natural marine environments on the Victorian coast throughout your course, providing you with an exciting and hands-on program of study.
You can also experience the environment first hand through state-of-the-art, remotely operated underwater vehicles which beam images back to the boat as they are being generated on the sea floor. These images are to bring the marine environment to life, giving you the opportunity to participate in activities like identifying marine plants and animals as the underwater vehicle runs across a reef or along the seabed. The course has a strong ecological focus, linking biological and oceanographic processes in the study of marine environments.
The combination of knowledge and skills gained from this course will give you the capacity as a graduate to contribute significantly to the management of the marine environment in Australia and overseas.
Units in the course may include assessment hurdle requirements.
