Professionals increasingly are required to deal with complex and uncertain socio-ecological issues in both their planning and practice. Social science is the body of theory, understanding and experience that deals with the human (or social) dimensions of environmental issues. This subject places social science knowledge squarely in the domain of natural resource and environmental management through a number of case studies, including the importance of knowledge and understandings of the Indigenous people of Australia in contemporary environmental and resource management issues. Students completing this subject have a broad conceptual understanding of the importance of the human dimension in natural resource/environmental management.
