Master of Sustainable Development
Climate change. Poverty. Population growth. Gender equality. These are the most concerning topics of the 21st Century. The actions of humans create many social and environmental problems that are complex and challenging to resolve. Understanding and solving these problems requires insight into the cultural, demographic, economic, geographical and political aspects of development and human-environment connections. You’ll learn from industry, and leading academic staff, and graduate with a powerful mix of interdisciplinary skills to solve a range of problems. You’ll analyse and synthesise complex environmental, economic, social and political information to identify and plan appropriate development solutions and contribute to debates about human-environment relationships.

Master of International Development
Despite the efforts of multilateral organisations, governments and philanthropists, around 10 per cent of the world’s population still live in extreme poverty – often without adequate clean water, food or access to healthcare. As inequality continues to increase globally, skilled professionals who understand the complexities of the development sector and can help fight this alarming trend are needed urgently. You'll learn how to build strong relationships in the development sector and have the opportunity to undertake an internship or placement with a local or international development organisation, helping you develop your skills and networks.
