What will I learn?
This qualification prepares you for postgraduate research. You will complete a specific project and develop an understanding of multi-disciplinary approaches to research in sustainability.
Our environmental science qualifications have been developed with extensive input and support from industry experts. Their knowledge has contributed to the development of course content and delivery methods. The contemporary course content reflects the current state of play in environmental management and sustainability in Australia and overseas.
What you'll learn:
In this intensive year of study you will be introduced to the research process and develop a sound understanding of research methods. You will learn how to develop the elements of a research proposal, such as a literature review and a methodology and plan. At the same time, you will be developing the approach for your own research.
Many research areas in sustainability are too complex for a single discipline to address; therefore you will learn how to integrate information from a variety of disciplines. You may choose to work on a research topic that requires a multi-disciplinary approach or a more traditional discipline-based project.
Two advanced electives will strengthen your environmental knowledge and develop additional skills for your own research project in the form of an honours thesis.
