The Sustainability program at the University of Sydney will boost your education with an understanding of complex sustainability challenges and discover tools to measure, report on and identify solutions to these challenges.
The Master of Sustainability builds on the Graduate Diploma with a capstone experience that will put you to work in teams to research current sustainability problems in collaboration with industry (including your own job, if appropriate), aiming to deliver sustainable solutions to the industry partners.
Offering excellent flexibility, the sustainability program lets you tailor your subjects to suit your background and career interests. First, you will build a foundation in sustainability, with core units including health and population, energy and resources, food and water security, policy and governance, social change, and sustainability analysis tools. Then, you will broaden your study of sustainability by choosing your electives across a range of areas or focus on one aspect by choosing related electives and designing your Masters course capstone project in that area.
By joining the sustainability program at the University of Sydney, you will be part of a truly multidisciplinary experience. Six faculties across the University deliver core content, and nine faculties teaching into the program’s electives. You will be guided by the University’s experts, who are leaders in their fields internationally, and also from industry professionals, who partner with the program as guest speakers and mentors to provide insight into a range of workplaces.
Graduates will be equipped to engage in developing and implementing solutions to the complex question of how to deliver acceptable lifestyles for all without compromising the fate of future generations. The capstone project provides you with experience working on a real sustainability issue, and the generalist nature of the program allows you to plan study that aligns with your professional aspirations and career goals.
