The Master of Environmental Management will help you develop specialist knowledge of issues of national and global consequence, including:
- water management
- sustainability and ecosystem health
- environmental legislation and policy
- environmental impact assessment
- climate change policy
- conservation biology.
In addition to these, you can choose from a range of other courses to tailor the degree to your own needs and interests. These include science-based approaches to applying environmental science in policy contexts, marine ecology and management, as well as project management. There are also courses on health related matters, Indigenous perspectives and development concerns.
You'll study contemporary environmental issues from practical and theoretical perspectives. Developing a sound understanding of the key approaches in environmental management and decision-making, you’ll expand your critical appreciation of sustainability, ethics, governance and cultural difference in relation to environmental practice and management. If you are interested in studying courses within the Master of Environmental Management, without the commitment of enrolling into the whole degree program, you can do so. Choose one or two courses that you are interested in to enhance your current skills and stay up to date with the latest in environmental policy and planning.
