Western Australia (WA) is a marine and terrestrial biodiversity hot-spot. Up to 80 per cent of the region's plants, marine fish and invertebrates are unique to the area. This makes WA the ideal living laboratory for studies in biological science.
When you graduate from the Biological Science program at The University of Western Australia you will have the ability to integrate advanced knowledge of species biology and ecology to assess their vulnerability to environmental change, as well as have the ability to design, execute, analyse and report on field and/or laboratory projects.
You’ll possess communication and technical research skills to justify and interpret methodologies, conclusions and professional decisions to specialist and non-specialist audiences. You’ll become a broad thinker who can critically assess advanced research in your discipline and integrate this into practical solutions for preserving biodiversity. You’ll contribute to group and/or individual research projects, as well as work independently to plan and execute a substantial research project and/or piece of scholarship.
