About

The aim of the Environment and Sustainability program from the University of Southern Queensland addresses these needs by providing important core studies and flexibility in choice of elective studies that will enhance their skills and knowledge in the broad discipline of environment and sustainability. 

Overview

  • Do you have a bachelor degree or extensive industry experience and want to increase your employability or change your career?
  • Modern environment and natural resource management requires the integration of social, environmental and economic research. It also requires a capacity to handle complexity and uncertainty and the application of different methods of analysis and different approaches to governance and community engagement.

  • Adaptation to climate change and sustainability science are emphasised in global and regional contexts in this specialisation.

You will have the opportunity to decide between two different pathways of study in your masters degree: 
  • Research Project track — the Research Project track equips you with research skills and allows you to develop a research thesis through a project in your chosen disciplinary application area.
  • Research Training track — the Research Training track allows you to develop your research capability and gain specialised cognitive and technical skills to prepare for a professional career in science.
