description <div><p>Climate change, biodiversity loss and resource depletion are just some of the environmental issues that are posing challenges to people and ecosystems across the planet. This interdisciplinary diploma combines the social and natural sciences to provide you with knowledge of the societal (social, political, economic, cultural and ethical) and the biophysical (geological, physical, ecological) dimensions of such issues. You'll also gain an understanding of why recognising the connections between these different dimensions is so important if the environmental challenges we face are to be effectively addressed.</p></div>
