About this course
Students who undertake the Master of Environment may either pursue one of eleven major fields of study, or the tailored specialisation, subject to approval by an academic advisor.
The major fields of study offered in the Master of Environment degree have been designed by experts in the field and approved by academic and external advisors affiliated with the Office for Environmental Programs.
The major discipline areas include:
- Conservation and Restoration
- Integrated Water Catchment Management
- Waste Management
- Environment and Public Health
- Education and Social Change
- Governance, Policy and Markets
- Sustainable Cities, Sustainable Regions
- Energy Efficiency Modelling and Implementation
- Climate Change
- Environmental Science
- Tailored Specialisation
Each stream offers a specific choice of subjects, in addition to two core subjects which all students must complete. Students in a 200 point pathway will complete at least 12.5 of subjects from a list of capstone experience subjects. Students in a 100 point pathway will normally be exempt from this requirement (This pathway is only available to eligible students - see notes on Advanced Standing in Entry Requirements).
Changing between streams: It is possible to change streams following course commencement. Change into the Tailored Specialisation (from any other stream in the Master of Environment) does not require special permission. Change into other streams may be possible with the permission of the stream coordinator, and will depend on student capacity to meet the requirements of the stream within their study program.
Early exit from the Master of Environment: It is possible to exit early from the Master of Environment, but this can only occur where a student clearly meets the course requirements for one of the following lower qualifications: Graduate Certificate in Environment; Graduate Diploma in Environment.
