Bachelor of Sustainability

Edith Cowan University ECU

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00279B

This course presents students with a unique opportunity to contribute to an emerging challenge that we all face - how to make our lives, livelihoods, communities, environments and spaces sustainable. To meet this challenge, society will need graduates with an awareness and understanding of disciplines from across environmental, social and economic domains. The environmental domain covers the water, air and soil and the biota that inhabit them, while the economic domain deals with the financial and managerial aspects of business and resource decisions. The social domain recognises that people are both the cause of and solution to sustainability issues. Students will receive practical and theoretical guidance in a set of skills that are essential for solving problems: systems thinking, critical thinking, and decision-making, and will build personal attributes that will enable them to work in teams to generate new ideas, and new solutions. Studies will include an emphasis on field-based exercises and workplace learning.
