Macquarie University Graduate Environmental Sciences Programs

Macquarie University offers a broad range of courses in some of today’s most exciting and topical subject areas which impact on our world and its people. At Macquarie, two faculties host environmental sciences studies: the Faculty of Science and Engineering and the Faculty of Arts. Both departments are interdisciplinary, and members of the two departments collaborate in research, learning, and teaching, particularly in the areas of environmental management and planning. Study areas include

  • animal behaviour
  • climate change
  • conservation
  • earth sciences
  • ecology
  • environmental management
  • environmental science
  • geographic information science
  • geology and geophysics
  • marine biology
  • sustainability
  • urban planning

Within the Faculty of Science and Engineering are two departments that focus on environmental studies: the Department of Biological Sciences and the Department of Environmental Sciences.

The Department of Biological Sciences is a vibrant community of teachers, researchers and students working across a wide range of disciplines including animal behaviour, climate change, conservation, ecology, evolution, genetics and genomics, marine sciences, paleobiology and physiology.

Department of Environmental Sciences
The Department of Environmental Sciences is at the cutting edge of climate, atmospheric and Earth surface processes research. The department's aim is to understand our physical environment, the interaction of people with the environment, and improve the way we manage the environment.

The Department of Environmental Sciences is a dynamic and dedicated group of academics and research students who study and teach the interactions that occur between the physical, biological and human environments. This department studies how the environment works across space and how these dynamics have changed over time. They are heavily focused on how humans have altered environments and how environments can be better managed in future.

The department is committed to excellence in research, quality teaching, and efficacious professional and community engagement. Environmental Sciences was awarded the maximum rating (5 out of 5 ‘well above world standard’) in the 2015 Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) analysis. Macquarie's research strengths in Environmental Science and Management, Physical Geography and Geosciences, and Atmospheric Sciences all received the maximum rating of 5.

Topics of study within the Department of Environmental Sciences:

  • Climate Science
  • Environmental Earth Science (Geomorphology)
  • Environmental Economics
  • Environmental Management
  • Environmental Science
  • Marine Science
  • Museum Studies
  • Spatial Information Science
  • Sustainable Development
  • Macquarie uses this research proficiency in environmental management applications with internationally-recognised expertise in rivers, wetlands, coasts, marine, deserts and atmospheric environments. To support this research in both the field and the laboratory, the Macquarie Department of Environmental Sciences has cutting-edge analytical equipment and facilities, external funding to support environmental research, and partnerships with government and non-government organisations for applied environmental research.

    Department of Geography and Planning
    Department of Geography and Planning is situated within the Faculty of Arts. The Department of Geography and Planning was established at the beginning of 2015. It brings together the disciplines of Human Geography and Urban Planning with an interdisciplinary approach to relations between people, place and culture in terms of social and environmental justice, sustainability, development and professional practice.

    Topics of study within the Department of Geography and Planning

    • Development Studies and Cultural Change
    • Environmental Planning
    • Environmental Studies
    • Geography
    • Human Geography
    • Social Impact Assessment
