Enviromental studies

The environment, conservation and sustainable development are of key importance at all scales. Never have they been more pressing or more important for our future. Placed alongside Geography and Development Studies, Environmental Studies connects naturally to Public Policy, Law and Management. Students with an interest in the environment, whether from a science, commerce or arts background, will find Environmental Studies at Victoria University informative, challenging and inspiring.

The programme is enriched by contributions from lecturers outside the School. These enthusiastic and experienced professionals have a collective background in environmental planning, management, economics, policy, law, politics, ethics, indigenous development and non-government organisations.

Our capital city location facilitates work with government departments such as the Ministry for the Environment, as well as international agencies, industries, regional and local government, Iwi and environmental organisations. The School has particularly strong links to environmental policy agencies based in Wellington and the Environmental Studies programme maintains close links with the New Zealand Climate Change Research Institute.
