Master of Environment

Program Description:

Climate change mitigation and adaptation are increasingly being integrated into business management, government policy and technology design. These require knowledge across a range of fields including international conventions, strategic government and business policy, climate science, energy technology, economic analysis and management. Effective solutions necessitate a new generation of policymakers, managers and scientists equipped with a multi-disciplinary understanding of climate change issues. This major is designed for students seeking an interdisciplinary perspective on climate change, for work in policy-making or business advisory roles. Graduates should be well-placed to offer leadership through: a solid understanding of both theoretical and practical applications of policy and science; technological limits, potentials and risks; and the expanded possibilities available through addressing a wide-ranging global environmental issue from a multi-disciplinary perspective. Additionally, the Climate Change major presents an opportunity for students to establish networks with fellow climate change professionals across a range of disciplines.
