The Master of Science (Ecosystem Science) is a coursework degree that incorporates a substantial research project. This degree gives students the opportunity to undertake independent research in one or more fields of their choice within ecosystem science, plus a range of coursework subjects including a professional skills component, as a pathway to PhD study or the workforce.

This degree provides students with essential skills, knowledge and research training through a 125-point research project in one of the discipline areas represented in the School of Ecosystem and Forest Sciences: these include conservation biology, ecology, ecophysiology, environmental psychology, environmental and landscape management, forest science, genetics, horticulture, hydrology and soil science.

The Master of Science (Ecosystem Science) offers students the flexibility to develop their own interests by selecting from a wide range of coursework subjects, including discipline core subjects and a professional skills module that provides high-level training in the areas of science communication, data analysis and modelling, ethics and/or leadership in science.
