    Within the coursework component of the program, students will select units from fields (or streams) of study, which compliment their existing professional experience or qualifications, and include units from CDU as well as at least 1 unit from both JCU & UQ via Cross-Institutional Studies. It is the responsibility of students to forward their UQ/JCU results upon completion of their units to the Faculty of Education, Health and Science, so that an Exemption can be recorded, and the units count towards this award.

    Cross-Institutional Studies allows you to study units at other universities and to receive credit towards your degree at Charles Darwin. Applications must be made directly to the relevant University.

    The following streams are recommended:
    · Natural Resource Management: ecology, biometrics and methodological studies
    · Research in cross-cultural and multi-disciplinary settings
    · Management: Human resources, project management, business, tourism
    · Communication, education & extension
