An interdisciplinary perspective on how science can help understand and address environmental management problems.
Coordinator: Professor Michael McCarthy
This specialisation examines how science can help understand and address environmental management problems, emphasising the role of quantitative methods in environmental science, the skills required to analyse and model environmental systems and processes, and a high level of ability to analyse and evaluate environmental issues.
Students will focus on processional practice for the private and government sectors and can gain real-world experience through internship and industry-based research subjects.
Students seeking an interdisciplinary scientific perspective, with some background (at least 25 points of subjects) in either Biology, Chemistry or Earth Sciences.
