The Melbourne curriculum

Your Melbourne experience is yours to shape. If you’re interested in the environment, you can start with an undergraduate (bachelors) degree in Agriculture, Arts, Design or Science. Over three years, you’ll develop a deep understanding of a particular study area which will be your major. These include Agricultural Science, Climate and Weather, Environmental Science, Geology, and Urban Planning. After your undergraduate degree, you can enter the workforce or progress to a specialised graduate, masters degree.

Learn more about your undergraduate degrees

Wherever your talents lie, there’s a wide variety of professional pathways available from urban landscape management, to environmental policy or law, science-based environmental management and environmental engineering.

What is breadth?

Unique to the Melbourne curriculum, our undergraduate degrees allow you to explore subjects outside your core study area – we call this breadth.

Breadth means you can tailor your course to fit your individual passions and career ambitions.

With a Melbourne degree, you can study environment regardless of your major. You may choose to take a single subject; or take a sequence of three or more subjects called a breadth track. This can help you develop knowledge and skills relevant to topics like ecology, natural systems and our designed world or forests and fire.
