Courses

  • The UNSW Ocean to Estuarine Ecosystems (BIOS3081) course, Ocean to Estuarine Ecosystems Advanced (BIOS3681) and Topics in Marine Biology and Ecology (MSCI5001) explores environmental marine science by the practical application of theory.

  • The UNSW Physical Oceanography (MSCI3001) course examines the fundamentals of oceanography. It explains how the ocean works and interacts with other parts of climate systems.

  • The UNSW Plant Ecology (BIOS3061) course involves student-led discussions where you'll debate a range of current controversies spanning areas that range from plant-animal interactions to seedling ecology.

  • The UNSW Risks and Impacts of a Changing Climate (CLIM2002) course teaches the essentials of understanding and managing climate risk. This course demonstrates how climate risk may manifest as a challenge in a wide range of sectors.

  • The UNSW River Basin Ecosystem Management (BIOS6723) course is an intensive, 10-day field course focused on the management of one of the world’s most spectacular ecosystems – the Okavango Delta World Heritage site in Botswana.

  • The UNSW The Marine Environment (MSC10501) course explores aspects of both the physical and biological environments of the sea and their inter-relationships.

  • The UNSW The Science of Science Communication (BEES6800) course, teaches how to effectively communicate across a range of audiences about why science matters, how it works and its relevance in Australia and across the globe.

  • The UNSW Topics in Australian Marine Science (MSCI6681) course covers quantitative aspects of the physical and oceanographic environments of the sea. You'll explore the inter-relationships with plankton, fish and fisheries.

  • The UNSW Vertebrate Zoology (BIOS2061) course, examines the evolution, diversity and natural history of animals with a special emphasis on how they cope with Australia’s environment.
