Agriculture, environment and sustainability
Our planet needs informed people to drive change and sustainably manage our natural and farmed environment, while providing the necessary resources for our increasing population.
Change is closer than you think
At Curtin, you can study ways to conserve and manage our environment in the face of climate change in our environmental science course, which has streams in wildlife biology, restoration, genetics or environmental chemistry.
You can also study agribusiness so you can contribute to sustainably producing food and fibre, or marine conservation to protect coastlines from climate change and industry.
Work with industry professionals and global scientists to gain expert knowledge.
Develop essential analytical and fieldwork skills, including mapping and spatial analysis, depending on your course
You could make a positive change to food security, farming systems and managing global warming.
Protecting Australians from bushfire smoke
Having lived in Sydney during the summer of 2019–2020, Rachael Ryan saw how destructive bushfires and smoke could be to natural environments and the communities that live within them.
As a winner of a Curtin Global Voices Scholarship, the online Master of Sustainability and Climate Policy student is educating the public on the risks of exposure to bushfire smoke, and making air purifiers accessible to people living in high-risk areas. She is also writing a policy paper on the subject, which will be shared with Australian state health departments. “By building up our ability to plan and respond to climate events like prolonged bushfire smoke exposure, more people will be better protected from the associated health emergencies.”
