Aquatic and marine environments play vital roles in providing food, water, recreation and other ecosystem services to human society, as well as providing habitat for important species that make up global biodiversity. This sub-major will equip students with the background knowledge and training to work in aquatic and marine environments, assess water quality to learn skills in inquiry and problem solving and understand legislation on water, so that they can contribute beneficially to management and/or conservation of waterways and oceans and the biodiversity within them.
