Subject

Environmental sciences

Sustainability is a concept that is increasingly part of our common language, whether discussing climate change, community development, or nature conservation.

This course places sustainability within an applied context, and combines aspects of science, geography and social sciences to examine the impacts that humans are having on our environment, and how those impacts may be minimised.

In this course you will study across disciplines, but always within the context of managing the environment and relevant human impacts. You will graduate with a sound grasp of the underlying theory (scientific, social, economic), but also with the knowledge of how to apply practical solutions in management.
