The primary purpose of the BSc Honours qualification is to consolidate and deepen the students’ knowledge and expertise in their respective science disciplines/fields, and to develop research capacity in the methodology and techniques of those science disciplines. BSc Honours is essentially a coursework degree of which at least 30 credits are devoted to a research project and reporting under supervision. The degree demands a high level of theoretical engagement and intellectual independence and serves as the initial science postgraduate specialisation qualification providing students with in-depth scientific knowledge and skills preparing them for research based postgraduate science study.
For admission to the Honours Programme, a Bachelor's degree with Geography or Environmental Management as one major (65% in each 3rd year module) is required. The Head of the Department approves admission to the Honours programme.
