Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
This program prepares students to deal with issues which include climate change, greenhouse gas emissions and water resource management. Environmental scientists assess the impact of human activity and develop scientific, risk-based solutions to help secure a sustainable global environment. An interdisciplinary approach to problem solving is essential in this field, meaning that both the biological and earth sciences and studies in environmental planning and management are included.
The Master of Environmental Science is offered by coursework or coursework and dissertation. While the standard timeframe for completion of this degree is two years (full time), if students have previously completed an undergraduate degree in a cognate (related) area it may be possible to complete within 1.5 years. The course offers a focused, advanced learning experience that will enhance career choices. Students must complete all core units and specialisation core units. This degree also provides the flexibility to choose from a range of units to complement your specific interests. Course structures for the master's degrees with the new 1.5 to 2 year structure (72 to 96 points) are now available via the UWA Handbook. Visit handbooks.uwa.edu.au/courses for details.
