This is a highly-respected degree that has been the launching pad for many successful people who are making a real difference in environmental management and sustainability locally, nationally and internationally.
As an Environmental Management and Sustainability student, you’ll learn how to create a better environment for people while sustaining biodiversity and world resources. You’ll gain the knowledge and problem-solving skills you need to tackle current and future environmental issues and develop sustainable solutions.
You’ll get hands-on experience with turtles, quendas, endangered Carnaby’s and other black cockatoos on campus, living in a sustainable ‘green development’ landscape with two conservation category wetlands and a banksia woodland. These ‘living laboratories’ will give you an edge in your training as you learn how to apply scientific knowledge to address real-world issues. You can also volunteer with external organisations or get involved in restoration projects and research on campus.
You can create a degree to suit your interests and career goals by combining this course with another major such as Environmental Science, Sustainable Development, Conservation and Wildlife Biology or Marine Science.
When you graduate, you could pursue a career in the fields of air/water quality, biodiversity and ecosystem restoration, climate change adaptation and mitigation, ecotourism, education, forestry, fisheries and wildlife, green/alternative energy, mining rehabilitation, natural resource management, parks management, policy formation, sustainability, urban planning or waste management.
