As the global community moves towards a more sustainable approach to living, studying the environment is more important than ever. Griffith's School of Environment and Science is the largest body of environmental specialists in Australia and one of the largest in the world and we are home to some of Australia’s leading environmental research hubs and centres. Our research in environmental science is rated as ‘well above world standard’ by the 2015 Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) assessment and our coursework is underpinned by this commitment to discovery and innovation.
As a student in one of Australia’s top-ranked environment schools you will learn from some of the world’s leading environmental professionals and benefit from our expertise in environmental and natural sciences, urban planning and architecture.
In 2017 we celebrate 40 years since our first undergraduate class. A book has been produced taking a brief look at what we have achieved — School of Environment - 40th Anniversary (3.54MB PDF)
