Program outcomes

The Sustainability program is designed to:

  • Provide a foundation of understanding about sustainability to graduates with a range of backgrounds.
  • Provide some flexibility so that students may tailor their degree via the units chosen and – for Masters students – the design of the capstone research project.
  • Enhance graduates’ existing qualifications by providing an appreciation of the complexity of challenges to sustainability, as well as provide them with tools to measure, report on and identify solutions.
  • Empower graduates to change their approach to their work or make changes to their careers based on their understanding of sustainability.
