The world is facing many environmental challenges – needing your help.

Through the Master of Environmental Science, you’ll learn risk assessment techniques and scientifically rigorous ways to tackle grand environmental challenges such as air, water and land contamination and controls, climate change, energy transition, conservation and ecosystem management, and food security.
