This degree will provide you with an understanding of both the practical and theoretical aspects of architecture. The focus will be on the sustainable design of buildings, urban systems, public places, transport nodes, recreation and conservation areas.
Ecology & Biodiversity
You will develop practical field skills as well as laboratory and analytical expertise and be prepared for a career in conservation management, the management of threatened animals and plants, threatening and invasive species and local, regional and global biodiversity.
Environmental health takes a proactive approach to addressing the direct and indirect effects of environmental factors on public health. The discipline covers all agents present in our living environment which have the potential to adversely affect public health. This includes the broad physical, psychological, social and aesthetic environment as well as all aspects of the natural and built environment.
You will receive detailed knowledge and practical experience of sandy shore and rocky headlands biology, estuarine environments such as seagrass and mangroves, marine animals and coastal processes. By combining environmental management and in-shore marine biology, this is an employment-focused study program with extensive fieldwork components.
Society & Environment
By studying society and environment you will be able to integrate the science of political activity and political behaviour with studies of human cultures and societies, the economics of natural resources and the science of public health. This will make you uniquely equipped to help develop and implement effective environmental policies.
Soil, Water & Energy
In the Soil, Water and Energy discipline we focus on the interaction between humans and the natural environment, with the aim of securing food, water and energy for communities now and in the future– without compromising our planet’s delicate ecological balance.
Urban and Environmental Planning
You will develop the skills and knowledge you will need for a career as a professional regional, urban or environmental planner covering such topics as conservation planning, environmental impact assessments, environmental quality and pollution management, land planning for Indigenous people, rural planning and tourism and recreational planning.
