  • Degree designed to prepare you for a career in climate change risk assessment, adaptation and mitigation strategy development, and regional, national and international policy formulation
  • Global policy and governance perspectives on climate change
  • Strategies to improve environmental policy performance

If your aim is to help save and protect our environment as a specialist climate change professional, this degree is for you. Taught by world-leading experts in climate change science and policy, this program provides you with the skills to decipher the problem of climate change through exposure to different lenses and perspectives.

Climate change is a global policy problem. Your in-depth understanding and strategic insight into how to mitigate and adapt to the changing climate will be in demand. You will benefit from drawing on expertise from the Crawford School of Public Policy and ANU’s highly-acclaimed Fenner School of Environment & Society.

Strengthen this knowledge with study in complementary fields – non-fossil fuel energy technologies and policies; integrated approaches to risk and vulnerability assessment; the economics of climate change adaptation and mitigation; the legal dimensions of climate change; and the politics, policy and governance perspectives on climate change.
