The state of the planet is one of the biggest issues facing humankind today. Gain the knowledge and experience to become a skilled environmental scientist.

Resolve Environmental Issues

Risks posed by climate change, sea level rise, and stresses on our natural resources highlight the need for environmental scientists and advisers.

Environmental Science is about understanding how humans connect with and change the natural environment, and is taught through a range of scientific disciplines such as biology, chemistry, geography, mathematics, and physics.

Learn to assess environmental problems and protect and preserve our natural taonga through your choice of a postgraduate programme in Environmental Science.

Manage Human Impact

Many of New Zealand’s primary industries have an undeniable impact on the environment—agriculture, mining, forestry and fisheries all leave their mark on the planet we live on. Introduced predators pose threats to native wildlife and ecosystems.

As a Master of Environmental Science student, you’ll have the opportunity to spend time on the ground, conducting fieldwork like monitoring the quality of waterways, soil, or air. Gain an understanding of the tools and techniques that can help mitigate the human impact on the environment. And learn to analyse complex data sets, draw conclusions, and communicate scientific results to effect policy and regulatory change.
