Honours Biodiversity and Environmental Sciences is a flexible, combined Honours program that focuses on interdisciplinary studies among these two fields. This program enables students to select courses according to their interests, to develop broad knowledge and understanding of the linkages between biological and environmental processes and to apply these to questions of biological or environmental interests.
