Sustainability and Development

How do we alleviate global poverty, promote human and social development and sustain the world's diverse ecologies?

In this major we look at the problems of poverty and environmental degradation and investigate how socio-cultural, economic, historical, political and environmental factors shape our world.

You'll learn to identify political strategies and synergies to achieve the potentially conflicting goals of human development and environmental sustainability. You'll also have the opportunity to work off campus so you gain the skills and experience you need to succeed in the workplace.

For more information, please see the La Trobe University Handbook.

You can study this as part of a Bachelor of Arts. View all majors
