Development Studies with a Specialisation in Environment and Sustainability (MA) at Macquarie University

Macquarie University
Masters (MA)

1 year
Full time

Course description:

While parts of the world grapple with the consequences of waste-generating excess consumption, billions of people lack access to clean water, adequate sanitation and sufficient food. The Development Studies with Environment and Sustainability specialisation addresses the intersection of environment and development issues at local, national, regional and global scales and focuses on the equity, justice and sustainability dimensions of development.

Central to the specialisation is an appreciation of how the environment is valued, perceived and used in different ways by different societies and cultures, which generates both problems and opportunities for sustainable development. Its strong cross-disciplinary foundations will provide you with a deep understanding of the cultural and geographical dimensions of environment and development.
