A postgraduate degree from UWA creates local and global opportunities.
Building stronger communities
Children and young adults crave the direction that confident, competent and knowledgeable teachers can provide. Almost everyone has their own story of how a favourite teacher inspired them to strive harder and push further. This is the reward that teaching brings.
As countries develop and become richer, they tend to become more urbanised. When this happens quickly, pressure can come to bear on housing and fresh water supplies, sewerage, the living environment and public health. It’s going to be up to you to make sure these problems can be either prevented or solved.
Business and Management
An ability to adapt to change with speed, precision and enthusiasm is a crucial part of making the most of opportunities and making yourself and your company a business success. Our Business, Law and Strategy courses provide you with the skills and knowledge you need to make the right decisions at the right time.
Computing and Information Technology
There aren’t many things that don’t involve an element of information technology these days, but while problems across all industries are being solved by computers, it's still up to technology specialists to figure out how to use those computers to solve those problems.
Whatever industry you work in, you’re bound to have seen how global trends and the growing influence of various political movements have changed how things are done. Globalisation affects all industries, regardless of their size, and for businesses to become successful it's important they understand the opportunities and challenges a globalised world presents.
Health and Medicine
Global health is at a crossroads. In countries with established and robust economies, people are living longer but are suffering more from chronic disease. In developing nations with high birth rates, the threat of diseases that could become pandemics is an ever-present concern.
Life and Environmental Science
At UWA we’re progressing towards the sustainability and endurance of our environment, our food and our natural resources, but there is more work to be done.
