Biological Science - Masters Degree (Research)
Biological Science is the study of life and living organisms.
It brings together and makes use of many areas of science and encompasses all aspects of plant and animal biology including how they interrelate with each other and interact in and with the environment. The importance of the study of Biological Science cannot be overemphasised in a world where the environments, on which plants and animals depend, are under constant threat. People with training in the biological sciences work in many areas related to the conservation and understanding of the environment and natural resources.
Biologists are employed in industries, companies and government departments involved in areas such as agriculture, animal care, horticulture, land and water conservation, fire management, aquaculture and pollution control. Other roles include policy advisors, journalists, waste managers and environment consultants.
The School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences Masters by Research program requires a minimum of three academic sessions of full-time study and preparation of a written thesis. Once completed, the thesis is examined by members of the Australian and international scientific academic community.
