Master of Environmental Science by research and coursework
Course code: 2702 ~ Course abbreviation: MEnvSci ~ 1.5years full-time, 3 years part-time ~ Managing faculty: Arts
Study mode and course location
Studies in environmental science are concerned with the relationships between humans and their biogeological contexts with the aim of integrating the two with the insights offered by both the humanities and the sciences. Environmental science recognises the interdependence of humans and the rest of nature and research emphasises the processes and impacts of human environment interactions, policy development and implications, and the implementation of management strategies favourable to the environment.
The course has been designed to both broaden and deepen students' existing knowledge, providing intensive interdisciplinary as well as disciplinary research training in either the Faculty of Arts or the Faculty of Science. In addition to research in an area of specific interest, through core coursework the course offers insight into the ideological, philosophical and disciplinary approaches to environment and sustainability, and provides experience in the interdisciplinary team-based research which is an essential component of training in this area. Elective units offer a complement to candidates' prior studies.
Supervision may be within either the School of Geography and Environmental Science or the Faculty of Science.
