This interdisciplinary unit is available as an elective and is suitable for students with backgrounds including (but not limited to) Science, English, Government, History, Law, Management, Psychology and/or Sociology.
This unit provides an introduction to legal, administrative, social and scientific aspects of environmental impact assessment, environmental auditing, environmental management systems and related environmental management tools. We cover the practical aspects of environmental management for Tasmanian, Australian and international contexts. There is a strong focus on job-readiness for people who plan to work in environmental management, environmental planning or a related field. This unit combines well with disciplinary training in areas such as law, geology, biological sciences, and social sciences.
