Summary

As a student you will address and manage complex issues to ensure that marine industries prosper sustainably in healthy marine ecosystems. As a graduate, you will be equipped to tackle problems that affect our oceans, tourism, fisheries and food production, climate change, maritime pollution and waste management.

With cutting-edge teaching and research strengths, Griffith University is an ideal location to study marine science. Located within easy access to a variety of extensive natural and artificial waterways, iconic surf beaches and the diverse wetlands and coastal biodiversity of Moreton Bay, the Gold Coast is the perfect natural laboratory.

In your first year, you will take core courses that provide the necessary foundations in the basic sciences. In second and third years, you focus on your chosen area of specialisation.

My career opportunities

You will find opportunities in coastal resource management, fisheries laboratories, conservation and pollution control management, coastal physical science (modelling or meteorology), marine science institutes, medium and large consultancy companies, marine parks, education research and specialist marine-focused organisations such as Coastal watch.
