Protecting our environment is one of the greatest and most crucial challenges we face as a society.
That’s why we offer environmental science degrees at Swinburne — to equip you with the skills to maintain our ecosystems for future generations.
When you learn environmental science, you’ll gain a solid grounding of scientific principles and sustainable development with a focus on water science, environmental biology, mathematics and chemistry.
By the time you graduate from our environmental science courses, you’ll have the ability to analyse and understand our diverse ecosystems and have the skills required to be able to develop and implement plans to protect and transform them for the better.
