Environmental Change

  • Environmental Change



Climate change is one of the most prevalent issues of our time. Human exploitation and activity have affected the environment in ways that show alarming long-term effects that are not yet fully understood, from eroding and shifting landscapes to extinct species, and from rising temperatures to extreme weather events.

We need environmental scientists with knowledge on how these different systems work and repair, so that we can manage ongoing environmental issues as the world adapts and evolves.

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