'Doing the Advanced Studies extension of the Bachelor of Science at Griffith was such an amazing opportunity to do research in a variety of labs and disciplines—I moved atoms around, I fired proton beams and I modelled the interiors of stars.'
Employment opportunities are as diverse as the subjects themselves; with our graduates employed in a broad range of careers, from software development to meteorology to working out how proteins fold to developing algorithms for the banking sector.
Physics and mathematics majors are a great preparation for almost any career, because they give you the tools to analyse complex problems and a strong quantitative background that can be applied in any technical field.
