About

Maintaining the balance between our environment and human development is challenging. The future needs sustainable solutions to issues, including increasing biodiversity loss, urbanisation and climate change. Bachelor of Environment and Sustainability is a contemporary degree, covering environmental science, policy and social sciences, allowing you to address the complex challenges of sustainability by giving you a broad environmental education.

The Bachelor of Environment and Advanced Sustainability (Honours) provides the same breadth of opportunities as the Bachelor of Environment and Sustainability, with the addition of honours pathway options that are designed to extend your understanding and introduce you to concepts that are more advanced than standard course activities. This degree also offers a direct pathway into honours. (Progression requirements apply throughout the first three years of the degree to progress into the fourth honours year).
