ENVMGT 741

: Social Change for Sustainability
2020 Semester Two (1205)
Explores the concept of sustainability through different theoretical frameworks and how social and environmental movements have mobilised around this concept over time. Critically interrogates what is sustainable, what is social change, and how can social change be sustainable in a global economy. Draws on case studies of current environmental issues and associated popular social movements.

ENVMGT 748

: Coastal Management
2024 Semester Two (1245)
Explores the physical, social and policy dimensions of coastal management. The nature of coastal environments is a function of physical coastal dynamics, the history of human occupation and utilisation of the coast, and governmental decision making. Discusses shifts in management approaches in the coastal environment, using national and international examples to highlight key coastal management issues.

ENVPHYS 100G

: Sun, Sand, Surf: Science of Aotearoa
2024 Semester One (1243)
The atmosphere, oceans and land make up the dynamic environment of Aotearoa New Zealand. A range of phenomena with natural beauty can be described elegantly with simple scientific laws. This course establishes the physical principles underlying nature, empowering students to explain everyday environmental phenomena. These principles provide the foundation to unravel the science of Earth, climate and environmental change, and energy systems.
