    Bachelor of Applied Science (Professional Honours in Conservation Management) [P4C]


    Environmental challenges are becoming increasingly complex and problems like bushfire management and climate change requires highly skilled professionals. Conservation professionals need to be able to analyse a variety of information, including mapped data, to adapt to the current crises. Conservation professionals need to be trained in aspects of governance, planning and management in order to ensure the protected area estate effectively conserves nature and natures benefits to people.

    This course will train you in fundamental aspects of governance, planning, and management needed for effective conservation of nature. The unique combination of governance and management skills in a pragmatic, case-based learning environment will place graduates well for an exciting career.

    Within half an hour from the Sandy Bay campus, we have access to marine, coastal, heathland, wetland, grassland, woodland, dry eucalypt, wet eucalypt, rainforest, subalpine and alpine natural environments, as well as urban nature. Tasmanian nature is so distinctive and important that half the State is in reserves and approximately half the area of these reserves is world heritage. This makes it an imminent destination to study conservation and in particular protected area conservation management.

    The Diploma of Ageing Studies and Services will cover contemporary issues relating to care and services for older people. You will learn about the many social and health challenges that are associated with ageing. Areas of focus include the idea of ‘care navigation', policy, safety and health promotion. You will also look at the rising impact of dementia.

    As a graduate of the Diploma of Ageing Studies and Services you will be equipped with contemporary knowledge to assist older adults and their families in navigating the complexity of the aged care system and the trajectory of the needs of older adults across complex health and social systems.

    You could work in a variety of areas including aged care navigation; community support; policy development or in an advisory capacity.
