Summary

Lincoln University’s Bachelor of Science programme is applied and context-based. We aim to produce graduates who have a firm grounding in the basic sciences. These can be applied to processes in the environment, in ecosystems and biota or at the molecular level; helping you contribute to sustainable management and conservation of land, water and air and the country’s abundant natural resources. As our world changes, we need highly skilled individuals who can tackle the big issues. How do we feed the world while minimising environmental impact? How do we protect our environment from biological threats? How do we maintain good environmental quality? These are the pressing questions facing scientists of the future. As a Lincoln B.Sc. graduate, you can help answer them.

The Conservation and Ecology major of Lincoln's BSc focuses on giving you the practical skills, experience, and industry connections you will need to contribute to ecological and conservation activities of government and private agencies in New Zealand and beyond. Our courses include hands-on field trips and laboratories as well as weekly lectures. Courses in the first year will provide a solid grounding in the biological sciences – biology, ecology, plant and animal sciences. Practical-based courses will integrate the different focus areas of your degree at both second and third year levels. Practical experience is also available through paid summer scholarships working with ecologists and conservationists and through third year research placements. At Lincoln you’ll study with one of the most experienced groups of ecological researchers in a New Zealand university. Lincoln University's expertise in conservation and ecology include wildlife biology, entomology, plant ecology, urban ecology, restoration ecology, biosecurity, evolutionary biology, vertebrate and invertebrate pest management, and weed management – which are reflected in second and third year course options.

Students can start in:
• Semester One (late February) or
• Semester Two (mid July).
There are also options for starting in summer semesters.
