The Master of Environmental Science (Advanced) cultivates students who are able to draw on diverse disciplinary perspectives underpinned by three foundations: environmental science, policy, and management. This program is ideal for those wishing to develop breadth in environmental science and its applications, and depth in aspects of one or more of the biological, Earth and environmental and ecological sciences. Students will have the opportunity to develop a strong suite of career-relevant skills by working with stakeholders and applying what they have learnt in the field. The Advanced program focuses on completing a substantial research project, which provides appropriate research training for a PhD. Graduates find careers in forestry, natural resource management and science or further research.
