How to structure your degree

You can choose to structure your Bachelor of Environmental Management study as either a single degree or a double degree. This includes the following components: 

  • degree core 
  • major / specialisation (choose one of six available) 
  • electives 
  • general education – single degrees only.  

Single degree structure

When structured as a single degree, the Bachelor of Environmental Management is made up of 24 courses taken over three years, if studying full-time. 

Double degree structure

When structured as a double degree, the Bachelor of Environmental Science is made up of 20 courses taken simultaneously with courses from your chosen ‘other’ degree. 

Choosing your courses 

  • Every major has compulsory courses you’ll need to do and some of these overlap with the core courses required for the environmental management degree program. 
  • Select your major from the list of available majors (specialisations) in the UNSW Handbook
  • Enrol in the compulsory courses for both the major and the program. 
  • Browse by area of interest of subject area to find elective / general education courses that interest you.
  • Use the undergraduate degree templates to help you map out your degree.

TIP: When using the Handbook or the degree templates, always select the year you commenced studying science at UNSW. Follow these rules throughout your degree.

Following your degree requirements

All rules are outlined in the Handbook and we encourage you to use this in conjunction with the degree templates to ensure you are selecting courses that count towards your degree. If you’re approaching the end of your studies, you can request a progression check and our staff will provide an outline of your remaining degree requirements.
