Master of Environmental Science and Law

Course Description

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.
