The Graduate Diploma in Education (Social Ecology) explores the inter-relationships between the personal, social, environmental and spiritual domains. We acknowledge that everything we do as individuals affects others. We view ourselves as parts of the systems in which we live, taking responsibility for our roles. Students will apply an advanced social-ecological understanding to their specialised professional or community environment to arrive at coherent understandings of those systems of practice. They will develop skills in the analysis and synthesis of ecological relationships through critical thinking, creative practice and effective communication. Graduates will demonstrate a high level of awareness of social-ecological issues and take responsibility for their development and implementation. This course is delivered through a combination of online and intensive on campus teaching methods.

Study Mode
Two years part-time.
