Outdoor and Environmental Studies
OES is concerned with the ways humans interact with and relate to outdoor environments. The alpine environment covers places that have minimum influence from humans, as well as locations that have been subject to different levels of human intervention. Outdoor School Bogong, enables students to make critically informed comment on questions of environmental sustainability and to understand the importance of environmental health, particularly in alpine environments. Students will develop experiential knowledge of the alpine environment from perspectives of environmental history and ecology and also examine the complex interplay between alpine environments and humans.
