M.S. in Environmental Science and Management

The Master of Environmental Science and Management is a coursework and research-based program designed to equip environmental scientists with specialist or multi-disciplinary professional knowledge in conceptual, scientific and field and laboratory technical competencies related to environmental science and natural resources management. 

The program involves advanced postgraduate training for graduates who have an appropriate first degree for a career in environmental science and management, environmental protection, consultancy, and industries such as mining and agriculture. The program is also particularly valuable for candidates who are currently employed as resources managers and wish to upgrade their qualifications for either professional or academic reasons. 

Specialisation in a discipline is available through the completion of the capstone unit and 24 credit point research project, that once completed provides a pathway to higher degree research. 

This is an approved Student Income Support course. Eligible students may apply for Youth Allowance or Austudy.
