- Understanding the changing nature of the climate allows us to prepare for the future and implement strategies to mitigate the impact of humans on biodiversity and the environment.
- In this major you will explore climate policy and climate change, develop skills in maths, statistics, programming and climate modelling as well as resource management.
- Gain hands-on skills from your first year with laboratory sessions, site visits, field work and industry placements.
- Benefit from industry opportunities, such as the Graduate Meteorology Program with the Bureau of Meteorology equipping you with the qualifications and skills to become the next generation of Meteorologists at the Bureau.
- Learn from leading research taking place in the Centre for Applied Climate Sciences (CACS), focusing on fundamental climate science research, environmental/disaster risk reduction, economic systems and climate systems modelling in agriculture and water resources.
Graduates may choose to undertake further study in environmental science (e.g. Bachelor of Science (Honours), Master of Science, or PhD) in collaboration with one of our closely aligned research centres: Centre for Applied Climate Sciences and Centre for Sustainable Agricultural Systems.
