Program outline
The Bachelor of Sustainability integrates environmental science, social
science and EXVLQHVV to equip students with a broad theoretical
understanding of sustainability issues, as well as the necessary
practical skills to allow them to flourish in a rapidly expanding sector of
the employment market. The program incorporates material from each
of the three core disciplines, and allows students to choose one area
of sustainability (environmental, social or business) in which to major,
while gaining a rich understanding of all aspects of sustainability
theory and practice.
Now accepting

Semester 1, 2015.
The program is designed to provide students with the necessary skills
and knowledge to bring about transformative change in the workplace
and the community via a multidisciplinary approach, with a holistic
core of focused sustainability courses. The applied nature of the
program will ensure that graduates of the Bachelor of Sustainability
are work-ready.
Career Opportunities
The focus on sustainability in global and national governance is
reflected in an increasing demand for sustainability qualifications
in the employment market. There are many career opportunities
for sustainability graduates in a wide range of public sector and
community organisations and in private industry, including roles
such as sustainability and environment officers, governance officers,
policy advisors, and planning and research officers.
