¿Qué aprenderé?

Note: This programme may have an on-campus or in-person requirement and therefore requires that students submit a current My Vaccine Pass on enrolment.

We now have a great deal of information about the natural world available to us – the problem is how to make sense of that information. Ecology attempts to do this. It is a broad discipline that teaches you how to make sense of the interactions between organisms and their environment.

The Bachelor of Science (Ecology and Conservation) at Massey offers some of the best courses on ecology in New Zealand - making it the number one choice if you want a broad knowledge in the discipline.

Our ecology staff are world-leading and their cutting edge research features heavily in the teaching.
You can expect to learn about the latest research findings in lectures.
Our ecology programme is the longest running programme of its kind in New Zealand (more than 20 years).

Hands-on experience

Practical labs and field trips are an important part of all the ecology courses. You might learn how to identify fish and invertebrates for monitoring water quality, how to build a computer model to predict the recovery of an endangered species or set a sustainable quota for a fishery, or how to survey biodiversity in a forest or the ocean.

Broad range of topics

The courses taught in the ecology and conservation major include:

  • biodiversity of New Zealand
  • ecology and conservation
  • biological evolution
  • ecosystem health
  • freshwater ecology
  • conservation science
  • plant-biotic interactions
  • molecular ecology

You might be interested in courses from related subjects; entomology, behavioural and evolutionary ecology, and ornithology.

Further study

If you successfully complete this programme you could progress to study a Master of Science.
