More information about the Environmental Systems Analysis discipline

The discipline of Environmental System Analysis researches interaction and sets out to understand, describe patterns and behaviour models of different interacting entities that affect the environment and to design and optimise solutions for the issues identified in the environment.

A student of this discipline will study methods and means used to identify, asses, address and solve issues of the environment ranging from climate change and pollution to social, behavioural and policy problems.

The application of this science investigates systems and identifies the components as well as their functioning manner and scope. As a professional you can expect to adapt, modify, expand, improve or create new systems that address and solve the issues that humans are confronted with in their environment.

Suggested Study Programmes

  • Master in Applied Science

    A practitioner degree that addresses the advanced educational needs of working life science professionals. There are no prescribed areas of study within the Masters of Applied Sciences, therefore you're able to individualize your particular curriculum program to best meet your own career objectives.

  • Master in Environmental Science and Policy

    Chicago Harris and the Division of the Physical Sciences jointly offer the Master of Science degree in Environmental Science and Policy. The broad objective of the program is to provide students with the academic background in both policy and environmental science required for informed decision making in business and government. To a large extent, the curriculum of this program draws upon courses already in place at Chicago Harris and in the Division of the Physical Sciences, although an introductory overview course and an independent study are designed to integrate the policy and science aspects of the program.

  • Master in Marine Biodiversity and Conservation (Advanced)

    The UC San Diego Master's Degree in Marine Biodiversity and Conservation equips professionals with the knowledge they need to improve conservation of marine biodiversity in the world's most diverse and threatened eco-regions. It is focused on development of local capacity and science-based management tools. This is a unique graduate program of study providing cutting-edge knowledge of marine biodiversity and fresh conservation perspectives designed to teach current and future professionals about marine ecosystems from the scientific, economic and policy perspectives, as well as provide important cultural and communications skills.

  • Master in Environmental Engineering

    The Environmental Engineering degree program is designed for recent engineering graduates and for practicing, mid-career engineers seeking professional advancement.
