The Environmental Science - Catchments and Water course from The University of Western Australia is highly inter-disciplinary, providing students with a rigorous understanding of environmental processes, in parallel to studies in environmental policy and management approaches.
Throughout the course students gain important skills in data analysis and interpretation, lab and field methods, plus GIS and remote sensing. Importantly, you will become an innovative thinker who can critically assess advanced research in your chosen area of specialisation, and integrate this with your knowledge of policy and cutting-edge technologies, to identify solutions for ensuring the long-term sustainability of our environment.
Graduates from the Master of Environmental Science find employment in a range of areas including environmental consulting firms, Commonwealth and state agencies responsible for the environment, water, conservation, agriculture and food, and primary industries. Other employers are private sector firms working in the resources sector and non-government organisations. Our specialisations have been designed in consultation with the industry to ensure graduates are highly competent and sought-after in their chosen field. One of the fastest growing areas of demand within the environmental sciences is for professionals with expertise in Geographical Information Science and how this can be applied to support environmental management.
