Overview

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.
