Preparing to face the climate change challenge.
The Fenner School of Environment & Society and the Crawford School of Economics and Government at the Australian National University are drawing on the depth of expertise across the University to offer the Master of Climate Change graduate program. This program offers students unique breadth and diversity in addressing the multiple dimensions of the climate change problem through access to world-leading experts in climate change science and policy.
Students can tailor the degree to their individual interests and skills and study within a variety of fields, including climate change science; climate change impacts and vulnerability in, amongst others, water resources, biodiversity, natural resource management, human health and urban systems; non-fossil fuel energy technologies and policies; integrated approaches to risk and vulnerability assessment; the economics of climate change adaptation and mitigation; legal dimensions of climate change; and politics, policy and governance perspectives on climate change.
Graduates may follow careers in, for example, climate change risk assessment, adaptation and mitigation strategy development, and regional, national and international policy formulation.
The program meets ANU strategic and operational goals to be a leading research and teaching institution in the climate change arena, both in Australia and globally, as reflected in the Climate Change Institute.
