Graduate Certificate in Sustainable Regional Development

Deakin University

The Graduate Certificate of Sustainable Regional Development will suit students who are analytical, inquisitive, solution or policy-oriented and interested in seeking employment in areas associated with sustainable regional and rural development, strategic urban and regional planning, natural resources management, and climate change adaptation planning. Sustainable regional development is critical to the economic performance of both developed and developing countries. Two thirds of Australia's export earnings come from regional industries such as agriculture, tourism, retail, services and manufacturing. As such, demand has risen sharply for professionals with the ability to undertake regional socioeconomic and environmental planning that looks to the long-term competitive advantages of regional areas, and propose appropriate policy responses. As a graduate of this course, students will be well prepared to take advantage of these opportunities.
