Course outline



Human population growth and the increasing demand for resources is severely impacting management of the natural environmental and conservation of biodiversity. Without actions to reduce the human footprint and develop sustainably, the natural environment will continue to be degraded.

This specialisation will introduce you to the main sustainability challenges of our time. Major topics include sustainable production and consumption, cities, integration of biodiversity and humanity, and sustainability monitoring. Scientific innovation will be considered alongside advances in policy and monitoring.

You’ll study the interactions between climate, soil and aquatic systems, and consider the challenges of managing these resources sustainably for both natural and productive ecosystems. These themes will be developed through lectures, interactive discussions, preparation of information sheets and a field report, hands on laboratory sessions.

You'll also learn about environmental planning processes, including environmental impact assessment (EIA) procedures in Western Australia and nationally.

What's a specialisation?

A specialisation is a set of four units you can choose to complement your course. Most Curtin courses allow you to choose a specialisation from any academic area. Humanities specialisations, like this one, can give a useful balance to a course from business, law, science, engineering or health disciplines. Learn more about specialisation
