Environmental science and law is the merger between the applied science that is environmental science and the social aspect of law and policy that regulates our interactions with the environment.
The Master of Environmental Science and Law allows you to undertake complementary units in the fields of environmental science and environmental law. It provides you with the opportunity to extend your scientific knowledge into environmental areas, as well as providing an introduction to the field of environmental law and policy. The program integrates disciplines which are normally considered separately and which are difficult to study concurrently outside of this program.
It also provides the opportunity for you to gain a qualification to complement your environmental experience and to acquire knowledge in areas of policy and management.
The Master of Environmental Science and Law at the University of Sydney is unique. While there are environmental law and environmental science programs available through other universities around Australia, only the University of Sydney offers the blend of law and environmental science that characterises this program. We have access to the outstanding resources of the Australian Centre for Climate and Environmental Law based at the University of Sydney, which is well known around the world in this field, as well as to all of the scientific resources available to the environmental science program.
As recognition for the University’s outstanding research quality in the area of environmental science and management, we were rated 5 out of 5 in the latest Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) rankings (2012).
Program expectations Upon graduating from this program, you will possess a practical and theoretical background in aspects of environmental science and environmental law. This knowledge will include competency in research and general practical skills in these areas.
