Monash University Graduate Environmental Science Programs

Environmental science contributes to solving environmental challenges we face now and in the future. It draws on science to understand the interactions among physical, chemical and biological components of the environment, and creates new knowledge and ways of thinking to inform methods for managing complex environmental issues. This knowledge can also contribute to influencing policy, management and law. Environmental science is therefore suited to those interested in a career in science, as well those who understand that a science background can lead to work in organisations not typically associated with science, but where environmental considerations are important.

Studying environmental science at Monash University means students will be focusing on research and education that makes a difference. Monash has a focus on finding real solutions to global challenges and they encourage their students to do the same. Monash is making a difference in contributing to knowledge that will contribute to improvements for a sustainable future and improved world health.

The Faculty of Science at Monash University is divided into many schools that offer courses in environmental science:

  • School of Biological Sciences
  • School of Chemistry
  • School of Earth, Atmosphere & Environment
  • School of Mathematical Sciences
  • School of Physics & Astronomy

School of Biological Sciences
The School of Biological Sciences is playing a lead role in this century of biology. The school's work in vector-borne disease means illnesses like Dengue Fever may soon be a thing of the past. World-class research in ecology and genomics is helping to solve environmental challenges such as those associated with climate change, biological invasions, and large-scale changes to the environment, from arid areas to urban settings.

School of Chemistry
From food packaging, fuel-efficient cars to innovation in recycling and renewing, we are all responsible for finding ways to better look after the world we live in. The Monash School of Chemistry is taking this responsibility to a new level. Green Chemistry is reducing the impact of industry and manufacturing on the environment, through the design of new chemical products and processes that are non-toxic, energy efficient and waste-free.

School of Earth, Atmosphere & Environment
In July 2014, the new School of Earth, Atmosphere and Environment was formed, bringing together the former School of Geosciences (Faculty of Science), atmospheric science (School of Mathematics) and physical geography (Faculty of Arts).

For the first time at Monash, researchers studying climate systems will work alongside those investigating climate, weather, and near-surface to deep earth materials and processes - to name just a few. It creates a critical mass, an Australian powerhouse of Earth sciences education and research.

The innovation is a response to an emerging demand for Monash's talented teachers and researchers to foster its collaborative ties within its Earth sciences. It will build up the foundations of a stimulating, information-rich environment for students, across disciplines.

Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences
The Monash Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences, also found within the Monash Faculty of Arts, hosts several programs that fall under the category of environmental studies: Environmental Management and Sustainability, International Development Practice, and International Sustainable Tourism Management.
