The Environmental Management program from Charles Darwin University complements existing science qualifications if you are a graduate starting out or an established professional looking to broaden or deepen your professional skill set.


You will focus on the principles and practices of environmental management, particularly in the context of wet-dry and semi-arid tropical ecosystems and arid landscapes. The topic areas covered by CDU's Master of Environmental Management include livelihoods, spatial science and analysis, and ecology and management of natural resources. Unit selection is flexible between and within these areas. Professional placements and remote Australia and international intensives are also available.

The broad skills, concepts and applications explored in this course are also relevant even if you are working in other ecosystems, and includes a focus on the social context within which environmental management takes place.
