In 1971 establishing a School of Environment was thought of as revolutionary; today it is more important than ever. Over that time the environment and sustainable practice has evolved from a fringe issue to a mainstream challenge to government, industry and even individual households. We are helping society to face those challenges.
We have expanded on our initial programs to offer not only environmental and natural sciences but urban planning and architecture with a focus on sustainable development. Our undergraduate and postgraduate degree programs include:
- Environmental sciences
- Environmental management
- Marine science
- Urban and environmental planning.
Australian first, Australia’s largest
Our innovative degree programs are preparing tomorrow's environmental experts, problem solvers and visionaries - those who will meet the challenges of a sustainable future by balancing economic, social and environmental impact.
We have the largest group of environmental professionals in any university in Australia, and amongst the largest in the world. We are a leader in the training of environmental professionals and related natural and social science research. Our environmental research programs have always been defined by our integration of social and industrial issues with the biological and physical understanding.
