This articulated program introduces students to contemporary theory and practice in environmental management and to the study of environmental processes and systems. Students may also undertake some study of environmental economics, philosophy or politics and, at Graduate Diploma and Masters level, may study specific environmental problems, research methods and geographical information systems.
The Masters program is designed to provide students with a sound understanding and appreciation of current issues and skills in environmental management. It examines environmental policies, strategies and management systems, with a major focus on the recognition and development of sustainable environmental management in both urban and non-urban environments. Students may include a research project in their degree.
The program is international in scope but case study material draws strongly on the experience of Australia and other countries within the Asia-Pacific region.
