Environmental Science Courses Online

Environmental science underlies the theories and philiosphies behind the conservation and management of natural assets and resources.  Additionally science is used to measure the effectiveness of conservation measures.  These courses provide a practical approach to various aspects of this field including Earth Science, Climate Science,  Zoology and more.  All courses are tutored by Abraham Mijares, BSC. M.Sc. of Science in Ecology, Cert. IV TAE,  Cert. II Conservation and Land Management.

All of our courses are offered online with printed notes available, with unlimited tutor support by email from our qualified, friendly tutors. Find out more or receive your free info pack by emailing us at info@careerlinecourses.com or call us on 1300 172 882.

It was a really wonderful experience for me – I have been interested in the subject all my life – but migrating to Australia 25 years ago, raising a family and working did not give me a chance – now that I am retired I can enjoy learning about this topic – keeps my old brain challenged – i consider going on…..

What is the difference between Environmental Conservation and Environmental Science?

Environmental conservation is a general term used to cover anything we do to protect our natural resources and minimise environmental damage. Conservation aims to a) minimise our use of resouces and b) protect their sourse, the environment and is based on the fact that the major of our resources are finite.   Environmental science is the process of measuring, assessing and understanding our natural world.  The facts learned by environmental science are used to generate the direction of conservation efforts and to measure how effective they are.  Environmental science covers areas such as ecology, earth science, zoology, climate science (atmospheric science) and more.

Many of our students have a deep interest in the environment and wish to make a career in environmental protection.  These online courses are perfect as stepping stones before committing to a degree or longer course of study, to see if the the subject really does interest you and to gap fill areas in their resume or skills set .
