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. Read more
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.

Overview

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.

Sydney Advantage

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.

This program is suitable if you seek a marine science qualification for entry into the field, or if you wish to gain new and specialised skills in a range of theoretical and practical applications to extend your area of expertise.

Sydney advantage
The coastal expertise at the University of Sydney is one of the best in Australia. We have international leaders in areas ranging from coastal science and management to coastal ecology and biology. We have a tropical research station in the Great Barrier Reef and several units of study that take place there.

Sydney is an outstanding location to undertake marine science and management studies, due to our extensive coastline, harbour and unique marine ecology. The Sydney Institute of Marine Science is located in recently refurbished heritage buildings by Sydney Harbour, with state-of-the-art laboratories and facilities. Some of the units of study will be taught there, including Topics in Australian Marine Science which provides a capstone experience by introducing you to the Integrated Marine Observing System, a national infrastructure facility that monitors the coastal and marine environment in Australia. You will work with data from the Integrated Marine Observing System to solve real-world problems and learn how to tackle multifaceted problems concerning our coasts and the ocean.

Program expectations
The aim of the program is to equip you with the skills, knowledge and confidence to work in the multidisciplinary field of marine science. You will gain both a theoretical understanding and applied skills to connect marine processes and the challenges that are associated with managing such a dynamic environment. Topics include coastal management, modelling, geographic information systems, ecological statistics, remotely sensed data analysis and marine and coastal law, amongst others. This will allow you to progress in your career, to refresh your skills or to undertake a career change.

This course is available to both domestic and international students, and will allow you to progress in your career, to refresh your skills or to undertake a career change.
