As our climate changes, developing solutions to ensure humanity's sustainability is critical.
Working toward these solutions will connect you with fields addressing climate and environmental change, natural resources, climate resilient systems, and natural hazards.
In our Climate Solutions major, you'll study courses related to sustainability, the circular economy, environmental and climate change and adaption, climate risk and resilience, renewable energy systems, urban water systems, and natural hazard risks. You’ll also get first-hand experience learning from climate solutions experts in South Australia, and work on real-world projects throughout your degree.
