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

The Master of Environment has many faces too. We offer 12 different streams of study, from climate change to environmental management and science, to public policy, to sustainable cities and more, including a tailored stream that you can design yourself.

You’ll 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

Whether you've come straight from your undergraduate studies, or are looking to enhance or change your current career, with 12 pathways to choose from and expert academic advice throughout your degree, you’re bound to find an area that matches your passion.

Depending on your academic background, interests and aspirations, you can choose from over 200 subjects taught across the University, including overseas-based field subjects, a major research project, or an industry internship, all tied together with a tailored capstone option.
