The course The course seeks to prepare you to become Global Citizens with a conscience, equipped with knowledge and understanding of the key issues of sustainable development from across a broad range of disciplines. If you’re passionate about examining the relationship between education and Sustainable Development and the challenges facing the education sector at home and abroad, and if you’re enthused by finding new ways to promote learning about sustainability challenges, this course is for you. Adopting a problem-based approach, which fosters the investigation of issues using a range of means of enquiry used by researchers from the sciences, arts and social sciences fields, you’ll work with Global Sustainable Development (GSD) peers from the other GSD courses to explore the different approaches and solutions offered, their implications and limitations and their inter-connectivity. You’ll be stimulated to think critically and creatively about contemporary problems of global significance and to explore ethically and morally complex areas in the search for positive interventions with a beneficial impact. Embracing new opinions from your peers across the world, we’ll challenge you to become an active participant in your own learning and help you to develop professional skills through certificates you’ll complete as part of the course. You’ll have the opportunity to spend terms two and three of your second year studying at our partner institution, Monash University, home to the world-leading Monash Sustainable Development Institute. Alternatively, you may choose to apply for an intercalated year spent either studying abroad or on a work placement (subject to you meeting departmental academic requirements). Students are automatically enrolled on the three-year course, however you have the option to change to a four-year course with an intercalated year in the third year.
