Why study Natural Systems and Wildlife?

Students undertaking the Natural Systems and Wildlife field are taught to use scientific, social, economic and managerial information in natural systems and wildlife conservation and management. This plan combines fundamental biological studies with multidisciplinary skills in environmental management, decision making, problem solving and policy analysis.

During the third year of the program, students undertake a two-week field trip to western and northern Queensland enables students to study the ecology and management of arid zones, the wet tropics, terrestrial and marine tropical environments. There also undertake a 16 week integrated industry study in a related work situation where they complete an approved project on natural systems and wildlife management.

The final year develops the ability to manage complex problems, including human interactions, that threaten the survival of natural systems.
