Throughout the course you will develop an understanding of sustainability and our natural environment within an applied context and a cross-disciplinary approach to problem solving but always within the context of managing the environment, natural resources and relevant human impacts. You will acquire a sound grasp of underlying theory (scientific, social, economic) and the knowledge of how to apply practical solutions in management.
Regular site visits and field trips will allow you to broaden your experiences and place your studies within an applied and real world context.

Rural Development, Ecology: Management and Impacts, Land and Habitat Restoration, Environmental Policy Analysis, Waste Reduction and Recycling and Carbon Management.
