Lincoln University’s Bachelor of Science programme is applied and context-based. We aim to produce graduates who have a firm grounding in the basic sciences. These can be applied to processes in the environment, in ecosystems and biota or at the molecular level; helping you contribute to sustainable management and conservation of land, water and air and the country’s abundant natural resources. As our world changes, we need highly skilled individuals who can tackle the big issues. How do we feed the world while minimising environmental impact? How do we protect our environment from biological threats? How do we maintain good environmental quality? These are the pressing questions facing scientists of the future. As a Lincoln B.Sc. graduate, you can help answer them.
