Program aims

The Bachelor of Environmental Science aims to provide detailed knowledge of major environmental issues, human impacts and their key environmental drivers, and apply this knowledge towards more sustainable environmental and resource management. The program provides students with in-depth knowledge and understanding and practical/technological skills within four majors (climate science, ecology and conservation, water science, and wildlife and pest management) in order to operate as competent professionals in a wide range of environmental science careers.

Program objectives

On completion of this program, students should be able to:

  • apply a broad and coherent body of theoretical and applied knowledge in the environmental sciences, with in-depth knowledge in one or more specialist disciplines.

  • apply a range of cognitive, technical and practical skills reflecting the underlying principles of one or more environmental science disciplines, to collect, analyse, interpret and present environmental science data using appropriate experimental, computational, statistical and technological approaches.

  • exhibit well developed scientific literacy and oral, written and digital communication skills to explain environmental sciences issues and scientific results to a range of audiences.

  • work independently and collaboratively to critically and creatively analyse issues and develop appropriate understanding and solutions to complex environmental problems across a range of cultural, institutional, national and global contexts.

  • display ethical, professional and cultural awareness, including those of Indigenous knowledge systems and practises, in a wide diversity of professional applications.

Australian Qualifications Framework

The Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) is a single national, comprehensive system of qualifications offered by higher education institutions (including universities), vocational education and training institutions and secondary schools. Each AQF qualification has a set of descriptors which define the type and complexity of knowledge, skills and application of knowledge and skills that a graduate who has been awarded that qualification has attained, and the typical volume of learning associated with that qualification type.

This program is at AQF Qualification Level 07. Graduates at this level will have broad and coherent knowledge and skills for professional work and/or further learning.

The full set of levels criteria and qualification type descriptors can be found by visiting www.aqf.edu.au.

Admission requirements

To be eligible for admission, applicants must satisfy the following requirements:

  • Have achieved a minimum Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) of 65.6, or equivalent qualification.^
  • English Language Proficiency requirements for Category 2.

  • Subject Pre-requisite: General Mathematics (Units 3 & 4, C) or equivalent.


Applicants are advised to also address the following:

  • Assumed knowledge expectations: English.

  • Recommended Prior Study: Mathematical Methods and one of Biology, Chemistry or Physics (Units 3 & 4, C) or equivalent.

    If students do not have the recommended Mathematical Methods level for entry then they will be required to undertake MAT1000 Mathematics Fundamentals as an elective.


All students are required to satisfy the applicable English language requirements.

If students do not meet the English language requirements they may apply to study a University-approved English language program. On successful completion of the English language program, students may be admitted to an award program.

^

These are determined by the University for specific programs each Semester. The 2021 ATAR and tertiary entrance ranks are based on agreed QTAC schedules which assess formal study at Year 12 or equivalent level, tertiary, preparatory, professional or vocational qualifications or work experience, as detailed in the QTAC Assessment of Qualifications Manual and QTAC Assessor Guidelines.

Adjustment factors may help you get into the program of your choice by increasing your entrance rank. The additional points don't apply to all applicants or all programs. Please read the information about USQ's Adjustment Factors carefully to find out what you may be eligible for.

Program fees

Commonwealth supported place

A Commonwealth supported place is where the Australian Government makes a contribution towards the cost of a students' higher education and students pay a student contribution amount, which varies depending on the courses undertaken. Students are able to calculate the fees for a particular course via the Course Fee Finder.

Commonwealth Supported students may be eligible to defer their fees through a Government loan called HECS-HELP.

International full fee paying place

International students pay full fees. Full fees vary depending on the courses that are taken and whether they are studied on-campus, via distance education/online. Students are able to calculate the fees for a particular course via the Course Fee Finder.
