Be a voice for the environment

Responding effectively to environmental problems involves far more than applying scientific knowledge, or the ‘top-down’ regulation of people and their environments. The future of our planet relies on informed and creative thinking around policy and practice. This kind of environmental expertise is not only in high demand, but critical. 

Our six-month graduate certificate is suited to mid-career environmental management professionals looking to update their knowledge, students interested in related research and recent graduates seeking a career in the area.

What will you do?

  • Complete our core course, Environmental Planning and Governance.
  • Undertake one elective chosen from a select list that includes courses such as Environmental Impact Assessment, Regional Planning and Community Engagement.
  • Build advanced communication skills.
  • Consider innovative ways to address the signature environmental issues of our time.

Where could it take you?

A graduate certificate could be your first step towards a grad dip or masters. You might go on to negotiate environmental policy design with private businesses and government sectors. You could set up environmental programs for the public to air their concerns or better understand issues affecting them. Perhaps you’ll help implement economic incentives or decentralised solutions for better environmental planning.
