It is also one of the few universities in Australia to be ranked as "above the world standard" in environmental science and management by the Commonwealth government in the national evaluation of research strengths of Australian universities. We have courses in environmental science, park management, natural resource management, spatial science, and outdoor recreation and ecotourism. View our list of Courses to find out more. You may even qualify for one of dozens of CSU Science Scholarships available each year.
