Students admitted prior to 2003 should consult the Course Coordinator regarding their program.
These coursework degrees are focused on the areas of environmental management principles and issues and the rehabilitation of degraded environments. The courses aim to impart a sound knowledge and understanding of the significant principles involved in environmental management and also to provide students in the Master degree with the opportunity to investigate in detail, issues specifically relating to the restoration of degraded and contaminated environments. A significant feature of these courses is the linking of and integration of theory and practice. Extensive field work is undertaken during residential schools which is intended to demonstrate the application of theoretical principles. Through the combination and integration of theory and practical work students are provided with the knowledge and skills required to become successful practitioners in the diverse field of environmental management.
Prior to Spring 2001, the Master degree course was called the Master of Applied Science (Environmental Management and Restoration).
