Course context

This topic is taught and assessed as a continuum.

Topic description

Students will undertake a research project in one of the environmental disciplines represented in the College. The content of the research will vary from student to student depending on student interest and the project they choose to undertake as part of their study.

Educational aims

This Honours program aims to provide students with advanced professional knowledge and skills relating to a range of environmental disciplines. Depending upon the nature of their project, students will gain experience in laboratory measurements, field techniques and/or computer modelling. Research skills such as data analysis, literature review and communication of findings (both orally and in the form of a research thesis) will be enhanced.

Expected learning outcomes
On completion of this topic you will be expected to be able to:

  1. Have gained advanced knowledge relevant to the discipline
  2. Understand and apply the scientific method
  3. Critically review and interpret scientific information
  4. Develop and test scientific hypotheses
  5. Communicate effectively, both orally and in writing
  6. Work both independently and within interdisciplinary research groups
  7. Value ethical behaviour

Key dates and timetable

(1), (2)

Each class is numbered in brackets.
Where more than one class is offered, students normally attend only one.

Classes are held weekly unless otherwise indicated.


If you are enrolled for this topic, but all classes for one of the activities (eg tutorials) are full,
contact your College Office for assistance. Full classes frequently occur near the start of semester.

Students may still enrol in topics with full classes as more places will be made available as needed.

If this padlock appears next to an activity name (eg Lecture), then class registration is closed for this activity.

Class registration normally closes at the end of week 2 of each semester.

Classes in a stream are grouped so that the same students attend all classes in that stream.
Registration in the stream will result in registration in all classes.
  Unless otherwise advised, classes are not held during semester breaks or on public holidays.
