What will I learn?

Develop the analytical and strategic skills to tackle today's most vital and challenging global issues, such as climate change, pollution and land clearing.

UQ is recognised as Australia's premier university for the study of the increasingly important field of environmental management. Our lecturers are involved in decision-making for institutions such as the Nature Conservancy, the Royal Society of London, Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority and the World Health Organisation.

During your two year full-time program, you'll learn how to analyse and implement strategies that balance social equity, environmental sustainability and economic needs, and develop essential techniques and methods for resolving sustainable development issues.

You can tailor your study to fit your career aspirations too. Choose courses from areas such as conservation biology, regulatory frameworks, natural resource management, environmental impact assessment or coastal processes and management. Plus you can gain a competitive professional edge by taking part in international study opportunities, research projects and industry placements.

This program is ideal if you want to enhance your skills and technical expertise – even if you haven't previously studied environmental management – as you'll graduate with the tools to take on the highly complex considerations that impact environmental management, plus the ability to create meaningful change.
