Course Information

Climate change and the environment are major concerns of our time. Environmental scientists and managers play important roles in addressing environmental issues, such as air, water and land degradation; ecosystem health; pollution and contamination; management of natural resources; and species extinction.

The Bachelor of Environment explores critical environmental systems and processes, relationships between humans and their environments, and the interactions that influence sustainable futures. It’s founded in the scientific aspects of the environment, the effects of human-induced changes, and the management of resources. You’ll become highly knowledgeable about how individuals, societies and governments can best navigate a path towards sustainability, and economic and social prosperity. With huge growth projected in the environment sector in the coming years, this skill set will see you in high demand.
