About

The Biological Science - Conservation Biology program from The University of Western Australia will give you an understanding of the molecular evolution, structure, physiology, reproduction, behaviour and ecology of organisms, and the skills to apply this knowledge to the management of natural systems and the species they support.

Overview

When you graduate from the Biological Science - Conservation Biology program from 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.
