This course provides postgraduate education for existing and future professionals on the background, principles and practices of environmental management, particularly in the context of wet-dry and semi-arid tropical ecosystems and arid landscapes.

The course structure consists of core and specialist elective units plus a research project. The core units include Ecology and Management of Tropical Forests and Savannas, Statistical Methods for Impact Analysis, Community Engagement for Biosecurity and Natural Resources Management, Environmental Planning and Policy.
