  • Subjects
    Conservation

    The Conservation specialisation in CSU's Master of Environmental Management provides you with advanced knowledge and skills about managing our environment, particularly landscape rehabilitation and restoration, ecosystem management and conservation. Graduates are able to apply this knowledge, combined with their understanding of latest developments in the field, to solve a range of environmental management problems. This includes those novel and complex situations that require creativity and innovation to create healthy and resilient ecosystems. Upon completion of the course, graduates will have specialised technical skills necessary to undertake high level assessment of the environment, including a range of field survey techniques, the ability to analyse and interpret a range of biophysical and ecological data, being able to make sound independent judgements regarding a range of management issues and/or strategies that will lead to environmental conservation or restoration.

    Natural Resources

    Australia's natural resources are under grave threat from climate change, water scarcity, land management pressures and inappropriate development. Natural resource management issues are complex and involve biophysical cycles, ecological systems, climates and human communities. Increase frequency of droughts and climate variability, combined with increased population growth, deforestation and the decline in the health of our oceans and waterways, means robust decisions about the way we use our natural resources need to be made. Upon completion of CSU's Master of Environmental Management with a specialisation in Natural Resources, you will have the ability to use your mastery of natural resource management and knowledge of recent developments in the field to address such a range of novel and complex natural resource problems using creativity and innovation. Graduates have advanced knowledge and skills about the sustainable use of our natural resources and are employed by a range of businesses and companies involved in natural resource management, either as consultants or as staff. They may also find work in government agencies providing management advice at an operational or policy level.

    Water Resources

    Water use is the biggest and most contentious sustainability issue facing our natural and agricultural resource sector. Increased frequency of droughts, climate variability and higher demands create issues that require knowledge of ecology as well as of the policy and management issues that are inextricably linked to the use of water for environmental, agricultural and domestic purposes. Studies in environmental management (water resources) examine the nature of policy development and implementation and the cultural, environmental, political, legal and ethical issues that can influence the process. Emphasis is given to flood hydrology, the mechanics of river flow, floodplain formation by meandering rivers, the effects of post-European settlement on the flow regime of rivers in the Murray-Darling Basin and the management of degraded rivers. Your studies will provide a context and introduction to water quantity and quality including trends in water supply, climate change and risks to water resources in Australia. You will explore water use and demand including the value of water to the environment, irrigation agriculture and urban uses, water use efficiency and recycling.
