Do you want the power to influence a sustainable future? Take control with the Environmental Management (with specialisations) program from Charles Sturt University. Tackle environmental problems, whether those associated with landscape rehabilitation and restoration, or ecosystem management and conservation.


Two key questions facing our nation are how to maintain the health and integrity of our natural environment and how to ensure ecosystem services are protected for generations to come. On completion of the Environmental Management (with specialisations) program from Charles Sturt University, you'll be able to use environmental management techniques developed throughout the program to address a range of problems associated with these questions, including novel and complex problems that require innovation and creativity.

  • Choose your pathways and areas of specialisation

Your subject choices can allow you to specialise in different aspects of conservation, water or natural resource management. You may also choose to exit the program after four subjects (32 points) with the Graduate Certificate in Environmental Management, or after eight subjects (64 points) with the Graduate Diploma of Environmental Management, depending on your needs and goals. Exit points from the master's program provide considerable flexibility, enabling you to gain the knowledge and qualifications you need to add to your credentials.

  • Learn from industry leaders

Our lecturers are dedicated professionals with many years of collective experience in the field. You will develop advanced knowledge and skills about managing our environment, particularly landscape rehabilitation and restoration, ecosystem management and conservation.

  • Study at your own place and pace

This course is offered online – enabling you to balance your study with work, family and lifestyle commitments. You'll learn using a range of online resources and communication tools, as well as through attending residential schools on campus for some subjects and undertaking workplace learning in industry. Residential schools provide practical experience using state-of-the-art equipment and facilities that emphasise sustainable design.
