Master of Environmental Governance - Oceans, Polar and Climate

University of Tasmania

The Master of Environmental Governance (Oceans, Polar and Climate) is a new degree that offers a sophisticated, interdisciplinary and practical approach to understanding how global spaces and areas of common environmental concern are managed through law, public policy and other governance approaches. A unique feature of the program of study is the combination of individually supervised, in-depth research, a work experience internship, and classroom-based learning. Each student completes a major supervised research paper (25% of the program), a one month work experience placement with a government or non-government organisation (25% of the program) and four traditional units that are offered through online or face-to-face learning. The core unit, Global Environmental Governance, is taught in an intensive format over one week.
