About this program

Environmental Management component

In the environmental management component, you will develop an understanding of the physical, chemical, mathematical, biological and social dimensions of environmental problems and issues.

Attendance information

This program is offered full-time on campus at the Nathan campus.

You may choose to study courses at other campuses if or where the program structure allows. As a full-time student you will generally attend 10-20 hours of scheduled classes per week throughout the trimester. Classes may be scheduled during the day and evening throughout the week.

In Trimester 2, Year 5, you will be required to undertake unpaid practical experience via the Industry Affiliates Program (IAP) which requires part-time attendance at an organisation in the public or private sector.

Student Income Support

To be classed as a full-time student, you are required to enrol in a minimum number of credit points each standard study period. The minimum credit points for full-time enrolment in this program is 30 credit points.

Trimester 1 and Trimester 2 are deemed standard study periods. As Trimester 3 is a non-standard study period, continuing students moving from one year to the next will not be required to study during this trimester to be eligible for student income support.

Domestic students who commence in Trimester 3 may be eligible for student income support from the onset of study provided they are enrolled full-time in this study period.

Please refer to the Australian Government website for more details.

Work-integrated learning

Work-integrated learning activities integrate theoretical learning with its application in the workplace. The inclusion of work-integrated learning activities in this degree program demonstrates Griffith's commitment to preparing its graduates for success in their working life.

The final year of the program includes a compulsory industry based practicum (3001ENV Industry Affiliates Program). During this trimester, students will be required to attend an industry workplace during normal business hours two days per week. The Industry Affiliates Program (IAP) provides organisations the opportunity to tailor an industry-based project to address an organisational challenge or opportunity. Students are placed within an organisation for 2-5 days a week for a 14-week period from late July to November. Projects can be for one student or for a small team, stand alone or part of a larger project. Students contribute and learn within an organisation, bringing with them fresh and innovative ideas.

My career opportunities

Depending on the majors selected, you will find career opportunities in research, government, non-government agencies, engineering and environmental consultancies, data collation and evaluation, administration, advertising, business and strategic management, planning and policy, and sales and marketing. You will find work in positions such as environmental consultant, management facilitator, project officer or information management officer.
