    Bachelor of Applied Science (Professional Honours in Environmental Geospatial Science)…


    Environmental challenges are becoming increasingly complex and problems like bushfire management and climate change requires highly skilled professionals. Environment professionals need to be able to analyse a variety of information, including mapped data, to adapt to the current crises. Business as usual is becoming increasingly data-rich and Tasmania's Land Information System puts us in the fortunate position of being able to use geospatial information for many planning and day-to-day decisions across a wide range of sectors.

    This course will teach you to integrate geospatial and environmental knowledge to make practical recommendations for enhancing decisions around places – both predominantly natural through to highly urban. The unique combination of environmental and geospatial skills in a pragmatic, case-based learning environment will place graduates well for an exciting career.

    You will apply skills in geographical information systems and remote sensing to address complex problems associated with managing ecosystems and fostering sustainable practices. These skills are in high demand by government and industry employers, and your will benefit from our close connections with the profession and work-integrated learning.

    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.

    • Flexible study options are available
    • Student intakes in Semester 1 (full-time or part-time) and Semester 2 (part-time only)
    • Units offered across two semesters
    • Each unit will require 8-10 hours each week for study
    • Dedicated Student Advisors are available to guide your learning

    Articulation: Completion of the Diploma of Ageing Studies and Services would enable articulation into year two of the Bachelor of Dementia Care (with an optional major in Ageing Studies and Services).

    Note: As a Diploma of Ageing Studies and Services student, you will receive an automatic pre-requisite waiver for CAD101. Sometimes there are delays in this process. If you are not able to enrol in CAD101 please contact the Student Support Team [email protected] and we will help you through this process.
