Honours in Natural Resource Management

An Honours in Natural Resource Management provides you with advanced training and the skills needed to manage natural resource systems and help conserve the environment. Numerous career paths are open to graduates, with key employers including Commonwealth and State departments and agencies with responsibilities in the area of environment, conservation, climate change policy, agriculture and food, primary industries etc., as well as private sector firms working in the resource sector and primary industries, and non-governmental organisations such as Landcare.

Outcomes: Students are able to (1) apply economic principles to solve complex environmental management problems; (2) understand the strengths and weaknesses of the different policy instruments available to manage environmental problems at the individual, firm, and global scale; (3) frame and solve complex natural resource management problems as quantitative problems; (4) understand and apply environmental valuation techniques; and (5) apply project and risk management concepts and techniques to support decision making in an environmental and natural resource management context.

Entry requirements: the equivalent of a UWA weighted average mark of at least 65 per cent in the Level 3 units of the Natural Resource Management major in the Bachelor of Science or the Economics single or double major in the Bachelor of Commerce.

Intake periods: Beginning of year and mid-year
