Courses

  • The UNSW Environmental Change (GEOS3761) course delves into some of the great scientific and archaeological questions about what happened on Earth and why. Past environmental changes provide valuable insights into how our planet works.

  • The UNSW Environmental Geophysics (GEOS6733) course aims to provide you with the necessary skills and theory to undertake geophysical measurements of air, water, vegetation, soil and rock. These skills are often required at research and consulting environments.

  • The UNSW Environmental Impact Assessment UG (GEOS3911) & Environmental Impact Assessment PG (GEOS9011) course develops your understanding of how the environment is factored into development decision-making in NSW.

  • The UNSW Evolution (BIOS3171) course studies evolutionary ideas and research techniques to improve your scientific skills. You'll learn how to generate research questions, analyse and interpret data, and write a scientific paper.

  • The UNSW Evolution in the Modern World (BIOS2500) course introduces you to the power of evolutionary thinking and its application to understanding modern life. You’ll explore how evolution shapes the living world.

  • The UNSW Evolutionary and Functional Biology (BIOS1101) course examines the evolutionary history of life on earth. You’ll explore human origins and the relationship between environment, adaptation, form and function.

  • The UNSW Evolutionary and Physiological Ecology (BIOS2011) course introduces you to the functional relationships between living organisms and their environments with an emphasis on Charles Darwin’s Theory of evolution.

  • The UNSW Exploring the Natural World course (BEES1041) will introduce students to the science and scientific methods within the life, environmental and Earth sciences.
     

  • The UNSW Field Methods and Mapping (GEOS2131) course covers practical geological mapping techniques, general field skills, and the integration of stratigraphic, lithological, structural and paleontological concepts.

  • The UNSW Fundamentals of Atmospheric Science (CLIM2001) course explores the basic physical principles and processes that govern our atmosphere and its climate. It will give you the necessary knowledge to understand everyday weather phenomena and more.

  • The UNSW Geographic Data Analysis (GEOS3821) course explores a toolbox of conceptual approaches and methods to model and analyse complex, and often non-deterministic geographic problems.

  • The UNSW Introduction to Climate Change (CLIM1001) course is an online-only course that introduces you to climate law, climate psychology, electricity generation and climate impacts.

  • The UNSW Introduction to GIS and Remote Sensing (GEOS2821) course provides a theoretical understanding and practical introduction to the use of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and remote sensing.

  • The UNSW Introductory Marine Science (MSCI1001) course will introduce you to a cross-section of the theory and application of marine science.  This course was known as MSCI2001 in 2020 and in prior years.

  • The UNSW Life in Arid Lands (BIOS3161) course provides you with a unique opportunity to learn about plant and animal life in arid lands.

  • The UNSW Marine and Aquatic Ecology (BIOS2091) course and (MSCI9001) examines the ecology of aquatic habitats with a major focus on marine coastal systems such as kelp forests, coral reefs and seagrass meadows.

  • The UNSW Mineral and Energy Resources (GEOS3141) course introduces the nature and formation of mineral energy and resources.
