Study physics and mathematics at Griffith
The majors within physics and mathematics are part of our Bachelor of Science program giving you a flexible, interdisciplinary and innovative course offered on our Nathan campus.
Our expertise as educators grows from our desire to do exceptional research. You will be able to hone your skills through work placements and third-year research projects, where you will work alongside nationally- and internationally- recognised researchers preparing you for industry or a research related career path.
Science at Griffith has rated 5-stars for Educational Experience, Teaching Quality and Student Support by the Good Universities Guide 2018, a leading independent provider of high-quality education and career information.
Bachelor of Science
Jessie Christiansen has always been a starry-eyed dreamer; she helped start her high school’s first astronomy club. That early passion for astrophysics has burned bright ever since, propelling her studies and research into a stellar career that landed her the prize role of Staff Scientist at NASA’s Exoplanet Science Institute, based at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech). Jessie works on the NASA Exoplanet Archive, which is how NASA keeps track of how many exoplanets have been found (planets around other stars), as well as her own research into how common planets are around other stars. ‘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.’ Caltech recognised Jessie recently with NASA’s Exceptional Engineering Achievement Medal, a high honour awarded for a scientist’s ‘unusually significant engineering contributions’.
