Course details

Summary

Tackle the big issues around how we live together on the one planet, and gain a broad skill set and the essential knowledge for making a positive difference to your community, place, and world.
The Bachelor of Environment and Society is a flexible degree that allows students who have concerns about the major, often global, social and environmental challenges of today’s world to learn the critical skills to understand and confront those challenges and create, promote, and extend positive societal change.
Students have the chance to encounter diverse perspectives, such as historical, psychological, sociological, geographical and philosophical, and become graduates with wide ranging critical thinking skills which are in high demand with employers.
With global social, environmental, and indigenous issues looming ever-larger, the need for appropriately skilled, critical thinkers with a broad, multi- and interdisciplinary understanding is growing rapidly. The BES equips graduates to tackle the big issues and to be part of the solution.”
