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.
After spending much of her time in nature during a gap year, Victoria decided she wanted to learn more about the natural environment and pursue her interest in science. She chose to study Ecology and Conservation Biology and hasn’t looked back.
‘I went to amazing locations including Stradbroke Island, Bowra Wildlife Sanctuary and Maliau Basin. It has given me invaluable work experience.’ Victoria has enjoyed her environmental studies so much that she is now continuing onto an honours degree to research fire ecology with controlled burning by First Peoples on North Stradbroke Island.
