La Trobe University
You’ll study a range of disciplines including zoology, genetics, and botany, and focus on issues like extinction, environmental degradation, climate change. You’ll also take subjects in environmental law, remote sensing and GIS, and have the opportunity to study global environmental politics and international climate change economics and policy. You can attend monthly seminars hosted by conservation experts.
Our Melbourne Campus includes the La Trobe Wildlife Sanctuary, which is made up of over 30 hectares of bushland.

You will have a chance to interact with various flora and fauna, giving your studies perspective and gaining some insight into what to expect in your chosen field with off campus field trips to places like Wilson’s Promontory, Mt Arapiles, Falls Creek, Buchan Caves, Heron Island and the Mallee.
