Our teaching staff represent Australia’s largest body of environmental and scientific specialists
No other Australian university can offer the flexibility and diversity across 13 Bachelor of Science majors including the fundamental physics, chemistry and biology offerings. Programs can be complemented with a degree in business, engineering, information technology, urban and environmental planning; or criminology and criminal justice.
From studying rainforest conservation in Borneo, marine biology throughout the Great Barrier Reef, connecting with endangered species at the Australian Wildlife Conservancy or analysing land degradation and erosion in affected areas, every School of Environment and Science graduate exits with work-ready skills.
Bridging and short courses
Griffith Sciences bridging and short courses are particularly useful for students who have no or limited prior studies in the study areas, have had a significant break from prior studies or who simply wish to have a refresher course in a particular field.
Born and bred on the Gold Coast, Rachel decided at just ten that she wanted to be a marine scientist.
“The natural beauty and wonder of the ocean make it worth saving. Studying at Griffith University was absolutely the right thing for me. I learned key research skills that continue to help me in my career and the people are just so passionate about it."
“One of the highlights for me was our field trip to Heron Island – it’s those sorts of experiences that shape your life.”
Rachel now works as a fisheries scientist at the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries, helping to protect and preserve Queensland’s marine species.
