Environmental management and sustainability

DISCIPLINE

Overview

Environmental management and sustainability focuses on finding solutions to the world’s most pressing environmental problems. Using a multidisciplinary approach, you’ll have the opportunity to impact on current and future policy and planning across a range of environmental areas, education and change.

This course exposed me to skilled and experienced lecturers who have been there and done it. The course finally enabled me to gain the job I was after, too.
