The Master of Environmental Science gives students the opportunity to undertake intensive study in environmental science at a graduate level. It is designed for students with existing undergraduate studies in the life, chemical, earth or environmental sciences to extend their scientific knowledge of environmental problems, and to facilitate the development of professional scientific skills in environmental problem solving.

The program offers students the flexibility to develop their own interests by selection from a broad range of coursework subjects including: 1) core discipline study, 2) a core industry project and 3) a professional skills component that provides high-level training in the areas of communication, business and science application. Students may elect to take one or two Environmental Studies subjects if they wish to broaden their interests beyond the required Science offerings.
