If you are fascinated by Western Australia's amazing marine and coastal environments then Marine Science is the major for you. Western Australia’s marine environment is a biodiversity hotspot with up to 80 per cent of fish, invertebrates and other organisms found nowhere else in the world. Marine Science is the study of the ocean, its ecosystems and its life forms as well as the study of coastal environments, oceanic currents and the sea floor. This major includes marine biology and ecology, marine and coastal management, and oceanography. It combines knowledge of marine aquatic life with a solid understanding of the physical environment. Through experimental design and research you will learn to appreciate the complex interactions that occur in marine ecosystems. This major includes field work and field trips of two to six days.63



In the future

Graduates can expect to be employed in fisheries and marine conservation agencies, consulting firms, resource industries, the fishing industry, agencies such as Greenpeace and Reef Check, and in research at CSIRO, the Oceans Institute and universities.

Students can choose to pursue further studies at honours or postgraduate level. A master’s degree can be studied either by coursework (available specialisations include Marine Biology, Marine and Coastal Management, or Environmental Management), or by research (thesis and coursework in, for example, Marine Science or Conservation Biology). Students may also consider other postgraduate options including degrees leading to the professional qualifications listed on pages 179 – 198.

Are you inspired by tales of the Vikings, moved by the drama of Shakespeare, intrigued by medieval castles and cathedrals, fascinated by the Renaissance, or curious about gender and sexuality throughout history? A major in Medieval and Early Modern Studies (MEMS) may be for you. You can explore Europe between the fifth and eighteenth centuries from a variety of perspectives including history, literary studies, Latin, visual arts, philosophy and archaeology. The social and cultural structures and practices of contemporary Australia are still heavily influenced by the mindsets that European settlers and immigrants brought with them. Studying MEMS will enable you to explore this background to our present through a wide and diverse range of topics, from a uniquely Australian perspective.



In the future

Because graduates majoring in MEMS learn to conduct informed analyses within a wide range of methodologies, they are well prepared for employment in areas such as journalism, the media, cultural and heritage institutions (such as museums and art galleries), the diplomatic corps, publishing and education.

Students can choose to pursue further studies at honours level or undertake a master’s degree such as a Master of Medieval and Early Modern Studies.

Australian Society for Microbiology

Microbes are organisms too small to be seen without a microscope. The study of these organisms and the role they play in health, disease and the environment is known as microbiology. This major covers a range of fields, from immunology, the study of how the body’s immune system protects itself from infectious disease, to microbial genetics and genetic engineering and the environment. Your studies will teach you how microbiology can be applied in areas as diverse as medicine, food spoilage, control of environmental pollution and space science. You will receive a thorough grounding in the scientific basis of the discipline and its applications in the real world. As a graduate, you will be eligible for membership of the Australian Society for Microbiology (ASM), the national scientific and employment body of the profession.

In the future

Career opportunities for graduates exist in a wide range of areas including the healthcare industry, pharmaceutical companies, hospitals and biomedical research institutes, environmental science, the mining industry, food service, biotechnology companies, private and government laboratories. Other options include research and clinical positions in public health, agricultural, veterinary and university laboratories or the CSIRO.

Students can choose to pursue further studies at honours level or undertake a Graduate Diploma in Science, Master of Science or PhD.

The Australian Institute of Agricultural Science and Technology

Growing populations in less developed countries and rising incomes in more developed countries are placing increasing demands on the Earth’s resources. Consequently, there are many unresolved conflicts over the use of natural resources and the conservation of the environment. This major will teach you how to apply scientific, economic and social knowledge to help society resolve these conflicts. If you have a strong interest in science, a commitment to conserving natural resources in a sustainable manner, and want to play a role in the future of our environment you will be well-suited to studying this major. This major includes field work and extended field trips.67

In the future

Numerous career paths await graduates, with key employers including Commonwealth and state departments and agencies responsible for the environment, conservation, climate change policy, agriculture and food, and primary industries. Other employers are private sector firms working in the resources sector and non-governmental organisations such as Landcare.

Students can pursue further studies at honours or postgraduate level. A master’s degree can be studied either by coursework (available specialisations include Environmental Management or Agricultural Economics), or by research (thesis and coursework in, for example, Environmental Economics or Natural Resource Management).

How do we process the sensory stimuli we receive? How does the nervous system grow, develop and learn? How do medical conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, deafness, dementia and depression afflict the brain and nervous system? Neuroscientists are interested in the answers to these questions and how nervous system function can be restored after disease and injury to the brain. You will be taught by academics with established international reputations in neuroscience research at all levels— from the molecules that make up individual nerve cells and the transfer of information from one nerve cell to another, to the complexities of how behaviour, thought and emotions are produced.



In the future

Graduates with a Neuroscience major are employed in research teams in universities and research institutes.

Graduates can choose to pursue further study at honours or postgraduate level such as graduate diploma, master’s degree or PhD. Honours and PhD qualifications can lead to senior teaching or research positions. They may also consider other postgraduate options including degrees leading to the professional qualifications listed on pages 179 – 198.
