Overview

Environmental Science is an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the environment, examining its structure, functions, and interactions with humans and other ecological systems.

This scientific field is growing exponentially as we learn more about how the natural world is effected by our actions, and graduates with holistic and scientific knowledge of the environment are in demand to better our society, particularly in biosecurity, sustainability, natural disaster response, and global climate change.

Environmental Science is an integrative subject that builds on a strong disciplinary base in subjects such as Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Geography, Geology, and Physics.
