New science degrees at the University of Tasmania

The University of Tasmania have announced four new science degrees starting in 2015.

At undergraduate level there are two new courses - Bachelor of Applied Science (Environmental Science) and the Bachelor of Applied Science (Food Science and Technology).

The Bachelor of Applied Science (Environmental Science) degree will prepare graduates for careers in the areas of environmental and natural resource management, pollution monitoring, environmental impact assessments, water and waste water managements, policy analysis and implementation.  The Bachelor of Applied Science (Food Science and Technology) is graduates preparing for careers in food product development, food processing, quality assurance, regulatory compliance, food marketing and business development.

At postgraduate level the new Master of Applied Science (Biological Science) will provide students with advanced current knowledge in the areas of plant science and/or zoology, as well as developing a capacity for independent research.  While, the Master of Applied Science (Environmental Management and Spatial Sciences) is open to students from a range of educational backgrounds looking to focus on new careers in the management of natural areas, or to address wider social, ecological, political and economic aspects of managing urban and rural places.

Contact the Study Options team for more details of any of these courses, or come along to the Open Days in June, where the UTas representative will be joining us to talk to students about course information, the University, student life, accommodation options and much more.
