This course builds on the curriculum of the graduate certificate to provide you with a broader range of specialist topics
This course develops knowledge, understanding and appreciation of sustainability and climate policy issues in social research and analysis. It assists in career development, preparing students for new employment opportunities in a variety of public and private sector contexts that require social research and analytical skills in sustainability and climate policy. It is designed to complement existing knowledge gained from an undergraduate qualification in any recognised area including business, humanities, sciences and education.
The course also combines a general qualification with more specific educational opportunities, enabling you to learn in a way that best suits your existing needs and priorities. It also offers advanced, individualised learning opportunities providing a pathway to the Master of Sustainability and Climate Policy.
Upon successful completion of the graduate certificate, you may transfer to the graduate diploma and then enrol in the masters degree.
Graduates are prepared for new employment opportunities in a variety of public and private sector contexts requiring social scientific research and analytical skills. Many organisations are now hiring sustainability consultants in an effort to improve their relationship with the environment and their stakeholders.
Credit for previous study
Creative overlap between current employment and study is emphasised. Credit may be awarded for prior learning and demonstrated skills.
Many units are available as regularly scheduled classes spread across a semester or as intensive programs offered over three or four days. Off-campus and online study options are under development.
