The course examines environmental policies, strategies and management systems, with a major focus on the recognition and development of sustainable environmental management in both urban and non-urban environments.
Students may also undertake some study of specific environmental problems, research methods, geographical information systems, and environmental economics, philosophy or politics.
The course is international in scope, but case study material will draw especially on the experience of Australia and other countries within the Asia-Pacific region.
Graduates are qualified to understand the world as an integrated whole. They use a powerful mix of interdisciplinary skills to solve a range of problems. They can analyse and synthesise complex environmental, economic, social and political information to enable an understanding of dynamic human-environment relationships.
Graduates are proficient at retrieving, synthesising and communicating information, as well as managing data and drawing on different sources of knowledge. They think critically and creatively, and work effectively in teams and on their own initiative. For these reasons graduates are highly employable in a wide variety of fields within and outside environmental management.
