The program attracts people who are interested in environmental management, or who anticipate responsibility for environmental governance and policy formation. The course extends the professional expertise of people working in, or seeking to work in,land and resource management, biodiversity conservation, sustainable development and environmental policy. The course offers a broad, interdisciplinary approach to environmental management, and provides students with an opportunity to undertake a research project.

The course encourages postgraduate students to apply their existing skills to environmental problems and aspirations and to develop new skills and modes of thought. Students will have the opportunity to expand their knowledge of natural and cultural values; approaches to managing ecosystems; the social, cultural and institutional contexts in which environments are managed; and methods used to address issues associated with biodiversity conservation and sustainability. Emphasis is placed on integrating contributions from the bio-physical and social sciences. An important component of the course is the opportunity for students to undertake a research project on an environmental management topic.

Career outcomes

The course can lead to positions in conserving and managing natural, rural and urban environments. People with expertise in environmental management are sought after by local, state and federal governments; community organisations and private consulting firms. Students completing the thesis component of the masters can apply to undertake a PhD in environmental management.
