Restriction Enrolment is subject to restriction due to constraints on unit enrolments.
Description Murdoch University offers a Marine Science major at undergraduate level to enable students to develop an understanding of the complex physical, chemical, biological and ecological processes in the ocean. Students learn to assess the state of the marine environment as well as identify and mitigate impacts. Specialised units cover marine biodiversity, marine biology, oceanography, marine ecology and students also develop skills in coastal and marine management.
Murdoch's Bachelor of Science is a flexible degree which gives you the opportunity to build deep understanding and practical experience as well as to supplement your studies by engaging with industry and the community on relevant problems. You can even undertake studies through another discipline to broaden your understanding of the way in which science operates in relation to social, business, health and policy environments.
Admission Requirements: Onshore course offerings As per normal undergraduate admission requirements. There are no prerequisites for admission but it is highly desirable for students to have undertaken ATAR: Chemistry or WACE: Chemistry 3A/3B and at least ATAR: Mathematics Applications or TEE: Discrete Mathematics or WACE: Mathematics 2C/2D. Students not undertaking these reommended subjects will need to take additional units in their first year at university.

Equivalent of an Academic IELTS overall score of 6.0 with no band less than 6.0.
Special Requirements Students undertaking units in Marine Science will not be required to kill any vertebrate animal but they will be required to work with fresh tissue from dead animals in certain units.
Major Learning Outcomes The Marine Science major aims to provide specialised knowledge enabling students to understand the complex physical and biological interactions within the ocean, to gain an ability to assess the state of the marine environment, and to be able to predict the consequences of future disturbances to this environment. This major will provide skills to apply the knowledge gained towards environmental management, with an emphasis on coastal systems. A number of units deal specifically with coastal management issues and oceanography and marine pollution.

Through a combination of required and elective units, students can direct their studies towards employment opportunities in marine environmental management, fisheries, aquaculture, the offshore oil and gas industry, tourism and recreation, marine biotechnology, biodiversity conservation and marine ecology.

Course Commencement Students are advised that a Semester 1 intake is preferred. A Semester 2 start will require 3.5 years to complete.
Internet Access RequirementsMurdoch units normally include an online component comprising materials, discussions, lecture recordings and assessment activities. All students, regardless of their location or mode of study, need to have access to and be able to use computing devices with browsing capability and a connection to the Internet via Broadband (Cable, ADSL or Mobile) or Wireless.
