Course outline

Studying a Bachelor of Environmental Science at Griffith will ready you to apply scientific rigor to environmental management decision-making. It will equip you with the skills and knowledge to help make a difference to key challenges of the 21st century and contribute to building resilient communities. You’ll gain knowledge and skills from across the broad environmental science spectrum, exploring environmental issues from social, physical and biological perspectives.

You can choose to study a double major and still graduate in three years with your additional specialisation. The final year includes a ‘capstone’ experience where you have the option to engage with university research, undertake an extended fieldwork program in your major, and/or complete an industry placement.
