Our environment has many faces: cities, wilderness, agricultural lands, the oceans and everything in between.

The Graduate Certificate of Environment has many faces too. It's a 6-month full time (or equivalent part-time) course that gives you the chance to explore a huge range of subjects that span the full breadth of this fascinating and diverse discipline.

You’ll start to develop specialised knowledge and technical skills in an environmental discipline or field of practice, and graduate with the confidence to use this know-how to create positive changes in our environment.

Our graduates go on to effect real change in the world.

Diverse and multidisciplinary

We aim to be truly flexible and collaborative in our approach to teaching and, as such, our cohort is made up of students with a hugely diverse range of backgrounds, from commerce and economics to zoology.

You'll learn to work effectively in this multidisciplinary environment, and develop the technical and analytical skills you need to research and practice in your area of specialisation.

A global community

With 20 years of excellence in environment and sustainability, and more than 1600 alumni, the Office for Environmental Programs will help connect you to a global network, including industry leaders around Australia and abroad.

A course tailored for you

This course provides you with grounding knowledge in sustainability governance and leadership.

You’ll pair this with subjects chosen by you, in consultation with an academic advisor, that will help to hone your focus within the spectrum of environmental studies.

Whether you’ve come straight from your undergraduate studies, or are looking to enhance or change your current career, with expert academic advice throughout your degree, you’re bound to find an area that matches your passion.
