Why study Master of Environmental Science by Research and Coursework?

This course is concerned with the interactions between humans and their bio-geological contexts with the aim of reintegrating the two with the insights offered by both the humanities and the sciences.

Research emphasises the processes behind human-environment interactions, the development of policy, and the implementation of management strategies favourable to the environment.

The program offers a primary insight into the nature of the environmental issues through core coursework units involving interdisciplinary research experience and an understanding of the social construction of the issues.
