The Master of Environment and Climate Emergency, a new master program, is coming to Curtin soon!
The Master of Environment and Climate Emergency will prepare students to deal with environmental and climate challenges at government, industry, consultancy and NGO levels.
Why a Master of Environment and Climate Emergency?
The Environment and Climate Emergency was announced by the British Parliament in May 2019. It is increasingly accepted as policy by national, state and local governmental authorities across the world, and actioned across the globe as a result of the voice of the next generation demanding climate solutions.
This course introduces a strong emphasis on research to effectively respond to the emergency we are living now by taking action to address the younger generation’s demand. Students will be exposed to real world practice and challenges through favouring familiarisation with researchers, industry and local governments’ to build knowledge and skills to contribute environment and climate solutions.
This is a two year research led flagship course for Curtin University which leverages local and global partnerships to provide students with a unique learning experience.
The course is currently undergoing the approval process across the university committee, expected to finalise by October 2019 and be ready to start in semester 1, 2020.
For an early registration or any inquiry, please send email to Dr Mariela Zingoni.
