The curriculum for the Master of Science in Environmental Sciences is designed to allow students to gain strong scientific understanding of ways to study, evaluate, and interpret environmental realities and their impacts, as well as to manage and mitigate environmental problems. Objectives are to enable students to:
develop a basic literacy in the natural and social sciences and the humanities as they contribute to an understanding of environmental issues;
critically analyze environmental problems;
identify, research, and evaluate environmental problems;
provide focused development of research skills in one or more of the physical, chemical, and/or biological systems in the environment; and
compare, contrast, implement, and manage short- and long-term solutions to environmental problems.
There is one concentration available: general environmental sciences.The department recommends that students entering environmental sciences have a knowledge of organic chemistry, algebra, statistics, and biology. The general sciences concentration provides students with competency in research and management of interactions among physical, chemical, and biological systems in the environment.
This program offers a flexible platform for those wishing to develop breadth in environmental science and resource management, or depth in specific aspects. The scope of this program is broad, reflecting the Australian National University’s diverse strengths in the environmental sciences and their applications. The flexibility of course requirements for the degree allows programs to be structured to meet individual interests.
Master of Science specialising in Environmental Science graduates can expect to:
