Why study Sustainable Development?

This field is designed for students who wish to solve environmental problems. It emphasises the importance of a healthy environment as the basis of sustainable jobs and industries. Students gain the skills and knowledge to work towards sustainable development. Courses explore strategies ranging from cleaner production for individual industries, and better environment design, to regional and national environmental policies and plans.

Students acquire integrated knowledge across a broad spectrum of disciplines, including ecology, geography, economics, planning, law, environmental design and relevant social sciences. The final year focuses on environmental problem-solving and allows students to specialise in specific areas of sustainable environment management. Students also gain professional experience in applying social, economic, business and scientific principles to the management of natural, rural, and urban resources.
