Study science and environment at Griffith

Hear from Professor Tim Riley and Professor Chris Frid, School of Environment and Science; Associate Professor Kylie Pitt, Australian Rivers Institute; Professor Vicky Avery and Professor Jennifer Martin, Griffith Institute for Drug Discovery; and Professor Howard Wiseman, Centre for Quantum Dynamics.

Practical experience

We offer a range of flexible and innovative programs to give you practical experience beyond the classroom. Depending on what you study, you could find yourself studying wildlife in Nepal or alpine plants in the Australian Alps. You can also complete an industry-based project, which will prepare you for the workplace and provide valuable industry networks before you graduate.

Learn from leading researchers

Throughout your degree you will be taught by leading Australian researchers who are developing scientific solutions to global challenges. In the most recent Excellence in Research for Australia results, Griffith rated ‘well above world standards’, the maximum rating possible for chemical sciences, environmental sciences, evolutionary biology, chemistry, condensed matter physics and quantum physics. Griffith was also named the Nature Index Rising Star for the Oceania region in 2018.

Committed to sustainability

With teaching focused on natural, social and economic aspects of the environment, Griffith is committed to sustainability. You’ll be learning from researchers who are investigating reef building algae that could help coral reefs withstand rising temperatures, gathering insights on how changing ocean conditions are influencing the recovery of whale populations and bringing off-grid renewable power systems to the Pacific Islands.

Unique degree offerings

With a broad and distinct range of science and environment degrees and majors on offer, you’ll find a course to suit your area of interest. You could study the only forensic science degree in Queensland or broaden your career options and develop a specialised skillset by combining your science or environmental science degree with a data science degree.
