Environmental Science is offered as a major field of study in the Master of Environment degree.

The Environmental Science major will attract students seeking an interdisciplinary scientific perspective, for work largely in scientific and environmental careers. Graduates should be well placed to offer leadership through a solid understanding of environmental modelling, monitoring and assessment techniques, and application of technology.

This major will provide an appreciation for the role of modelling in environmental science; an overview of the range of environmental models in use; the skills required to model environmental systems and processes; an introduction to the construction and mathematical analysis of environmental models; and a high level of ability to analyse and evaluate environmental issues.
