Over the past two decades, UNSW has offered interdisciplinary Environmental Management programs at postgraduate coursework and research level, taught out of UNSW Science in the Institute of Environmental Studies.

We are pleased to announce that UNSW has made some changes to the way we deliver our postgraduate programs in Environmental Management and from 2017 these programs will transition from UNSW Science to be hosted and taught out of UNSW Arts & Social Sciences.

Our current program of research, postgraduate teaching and engagement will transition from UNSW Science and the former Institute of Environmental Studies to join leading environment experts in Environmental Humanities, Social Sciences and Environmental Policy and Management within UNSW Arts & Social Sciences.

Joining forces to build on the strength of existing UNSW research in humanities, social science and science in a unique, interdisciplinary research collaboration is vital to understanding, confronting and securing solutions to contemporary environmental challenges, such as climate change and global biodiversity loss.

UNSW Arts & Social Sciences and UNSW Science will ensure that both current and future students in the postgraduate Environmental Management programs benefit from the transition to an interdisciplinary and collaborative home for environmental studies and continue to study innovative theoretical and practical environmental management courses. Please be assured that our current students will not be affected by this change.
