There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.


The impacts of climate change are seen throughout every aspect of the world we live in. These impacts may start minor and isolated, however without significant intervention strategies they will continue to grow and will be realised in more industries and communities. In order to support and develop these intervention strategies, leaders need to be equipped with the knowledge and skills to understand the science of Climate Change. This subject explores the key scientific concepts of Climate Change such as atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations, global warming and ocean acidification. Building on this, students investigate the impact that climate change has on human health, food production and society. With a strong understanding of the science behind Climate Change, the impacts it has across sectors and current strategies to reduce these impacts, students are able to influence and lead change within their organisations and their communities.
