A pre-requisite is a unit that you must pass before you will be permitted to enrol in a related or subsequent unit. Most pre-requisite units will contain foundation knowledge which is essential for success in later units. Read more.
A restriction describes a unit that you have already successfully completed, which is considered the equivalent to another unit that you are attempting to enrol in. Depending on the units you have completed previously, you may be exempt from completing subsequent restricted units. Read more.
There is no intensive school for GEOL202. However, there is a non-mandatory one-day excursion to a nearby fossil locality to give students an opportunity to see, measure and collect fossils in the field. On campus and online students are welcome to attend.
Please refer to the student handbook for further details on this unit.
Upon completion of this unit, students will be able to:
- demonstrate a broad theoretical/technical understanding of the progression of life on Earth;
- describe and evaluate theories for the origin of life and by doing so demonstrate the ability to analyse and transmit information to others using written or verbal forms;

- demonstrate a broad theoretical/technical understanding of a variety of palaeontological topics such as evolution, extinction, palaeoecology and taxonomy.
