Governance, Policy and Markets is offered as a major field of study in the Master of Environment degree.

Who drives the laws that determine our environmental future? And how can positive change be effectively communicated, or policy influenced through regulation, better governance and the media?

The development and marketing of environmental policy is vitally important in effecting changes in government, corporate bodies, and across the environmental sector. The Governance, Policy and Markets major looks at existing national and international legal and political frameworks relevant to the environment, enhances your skills in policy-making, business management and marketing, and gives you the tools to incorporate these skills and work systems in the workplace.

This major is most appropriate for professionals engaged in helping organisations develop economically viable environmental agendas and communicating these effectively to the public, or for those wishing to enter this sector.

Students can expect to find employment in a wide range of organisations such as government authorities, environmental consulting companies and industry and assist them in development, ongoing management and marketing of change in environmental agendas as well as the identification of opportunities that result from environmental initiatives.
