Programme Name Bachelor of Science (Environmental Management)
Programme Description
The new Bachelor of Science (Environmental Management)programmehas been designed to provide its graduates with knowledge and skills in environmental science and management as well as laboratory research, problem solving, data gathering, analysis and reporting, and inspiration to address the needs of the local community and to help with government regulation. The Department of Meteorological and Environment Science under Faculty of Science aims to provide high quality education and research in Environmental Science and related fields. The main task of the Department is to provide excellent teaching and develop high-  quality researchprogramme. In the last few decades, there has been a growing realization of the significance of environmental issues and challenges faced by the Pacific Island countries. Major environmental issues and challenges include impact of climate change; sea-level rise; water quality; and availability of fresh water in small islands countries; waste disposal; mining; deforestation and related land degradation; coral reef destruction; excessive usage of agrochemicals; and rapid urbanization. Small island countries, being fragile environments, one small error may contaminate an entire freshwater system or a large land area, which may destroy or render uninhabitable entire atoll island nations. Fiji's student population, the next generation of Fiji, continues to grow while Fiji hastily moves towards development.  With the much needed developmental process, vast environmental changes are to be expected, hence the requirement of better trained environmental scientists, researchers and decision makers. Their task would be to provide scientific guidance, provide technical knowledge and assist in decision making in order to support the developmental process, while protecting the environment for the benefit of the community.
