Programme overview

The Master of Environmental Management is designed for graduates who have completed a relevant Bachelors degree – for example, Arts, Business, Engineering, Planning, Science, Health or Medical Sciences – and who wish to build upon this with advanced studies in human and community engagement with environmental issues and/or the practice of environmental management. No prior study of environmental management is required

The core course considers alternative perspectives on environmental management and research methodologies as preparation for the 30 point research project.

You will be well prepared to make a difference in your localities and communities; and empowered with an understanding of social mobilisation, civic action, and practical expertise in environmental management.

Programme structure

The MEnvMgt is an 18 month, 180-point programme with the option of starting in Semester 1 or Semester 2, and completed over three semesters full-time, with part-time options available.
Students must complete:

  • 15 points: ENVMGT 701
  • At least 60 points from ENVMGT 741-762
  • A further 75 points from ENVMGT 741-762, ENVSCI 713, 738, or other approved 700 level courses
