Studying Marine Education at
Tertiary Institutions in Australia (cont)
I teach in Marine Science at Murdoch University where students can study for a BSc (Marine Science) and various postgraduate research degrees. The undergraduate marine science degree option is quite well structured with a range of units covering topics like Ecology, Atmospheric Science, Oceanography, Marine Biology, Marine & Coastal Management. Students often do a double major with Biology, Environmental Science or Conservation Biology. Some graduates go on to teach and obtain post graduate teaching qualifications and I presume would then be qualified in the marine education field.
Following are flowcharts of our marine science degree and a double major with Marine Science and Environmental Science. It shows the pathway and allows one to pick up extra useful subjects/units along the way.
