Environmental Management, Master

  • Application Deadline
  • 24 months
University rank #301 (WUR) ,
This course provides postgraduate education for existing and future professionals on the background, principles and practices of environmental management, particularly in the context of wet-dry and semi-arid tropical ecosystems. The generic skills concepts and applications covered in this course are also highly relevant to those working in other ecosystems.


Specific objectives of this course include providing a program that is flexible and caters to the needs of individual students. The flexibility of unit selection means students can undertake the course fully externally or internally, or a combination of both, depending on unit selection. Internally enrolled students attend tutorials on campus, while having full access to the materials provided to external students. Small class sizes mean that all students have ready access to staff, via collegial distance or face-to-face interactions.

While all candidates will enrol into the Master program, alternative exit points are available after one semester of study (Graduate Certificate) or two semesters of study (Graduate Diploma), subject to the candidate completing two or four specialist electives, respectively.

Student-centred, resource and activity-based learning materials provide a stimulating program that is balanced between updating content knowledge and technical skills, developing conceptual skills, and the application of these for natural resource management within its social context. The program continues to respond to the changing needs of employers and other stakeholders, with the latest outcomes of regional research incorporated into learning materials. Graduates of this course may seek employment in areas of research or environmental and natural resources management, within regional natural resource management agencies, environmental NGOs, Indigenous natural resources management organisations, consultancy firms and the resources sector. Students with consistently high grades and a high-quality research project may be able to pursue a higher degree by research such as PhD.
