What will I learn?

Our Bachelor of Environmental Policy and Management challenges you to make a positive impact. You will:

  • research how humans affect natural environments
  • explore approaches to conservation and sustainability
  • create policy and plans for managing environmental problems
  • learn about climate change, biodiversity, population growth and resource scarcity.

There are also travel opportunities. We offer exchanges and study tours where you’ll tackle real-life problems in vulnerable communities.

Students commencing in July please note some core courses, electives and language part 1 courses may only be offered in Semester 1.

Where could it take you?

Environmental expertise is in demand. You could spend your days outdoors as a park ranger or draw up plans for big business and government. You might set up programs to restore habitats for local wildlife. Perhaps you’ll work towards sustainability in remote communities, build policy around renewable energy, or get involved with ecotourism.
