Environmental scientists assess the impact of human activity and develop scientific, risk-based solutions to help secure a sustainable global environment. An interdisciplinary approach to problem solving is essential in this field, meaning that both the biological and earth sciences and studies in environmental planning and management are included. 

This Master of Environmental Science from The University of Western Australia prepares you to deal with issues such as climate change, greenhouse gas emissions and water resource management.


Environmental Science graduates may find employment in a range of areas including Commonwealth and state departments and 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. 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 environmental management.
