About this course

The Bachelor of Wildlife Science (Honours) is an additional year of study following on from the Bachelor of Wildlife Science. This program provides an opportunity to pursue an independent research project within the Wildlife Science field under the supervision of a wildlife-focussed academic staff member.

In addition, you'll acquire skills in research methodologies, research communication and entrepreneurship which will enable you to continue into a research higher degree or move into a diverse range of employment.

The Honours year builds on the knowledge gained through the Wildlife Science program, including study of native and exotic amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals, biodiversity and human-wildlife interactions.

With this extended program, you'll develop further expertise in wildlife management programs for captive and free-ranging wildlife and be able to make a major contribution to the wildlife, game and vertebrate pest management industries in Australia.
