Master of Natural Resource Governance

University of New England UNE

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Postgraduate
CRICOS: 00003G

This program focuses on developing future leaders and managers of eco-service markets, such as carbon and water trading, and environmental sustainability issues, such as climate change. Students have the opportunity to pursue interests in four aspects of natural resource governance: the biophysical sciences; relevant aspects of behavioural change including education and communication; business including economics, accounting and strategy; and law and institutional arrangements. Completing this course will give natural resource managers increased interdisciplinary knowledge for meeting their legal and policy obligations. The coursework will enable existing natural resource managers to upgrade skills in this emerging and cross-disciplinary field, or facilitate a career change for those with discipline-based qualifications (e.g. teachers, lawyers, accountants).
