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.
