Overview

Do you want to do your part for the environment? This degree will give you skills and the practical learning you’ll need to address the pressing environmental issues we face — in Aotearoa New Zealand and globally.

Various disciplines of science intersect in this programme to create a layered understanding of complex sustainability challenges we face — for example in freshwater resources, marine contamination, coastal erosion, biosecurity, natural disasters, and climate change. You will assess impact resulting from disasters, ecological change, and historical and current human activity.

Through classroom, lab, and field studies, you will learn research, data analysis, problem-solving, communication, and teamwork skills. This degree also combines mātauranga Māori with environmental research to unlock the potential of indigenous knowledge.

Note: This new degree is subject to Te Pōkai Tara | Universities New Zealand CUAP approval, due December 2020.
