When Griffith University introduced the first environmental science degree in Australia, it was revolutionary. Today it is more important than ever. As we strive toward creating a sustainable society where economic, social and environmental impacts are equally valued the importance of environmental science cannot be underestimated.
In 1971, establishing a School of Environment was thought of as revolutionary. Over time the environment and sustainable practice has evolved from a fringe issue to a mainstream challenge to government, industry and even individual households.
Griffith University has expanded on their initial programs to offer not only environmental and natural sciences but urban planning and architecture with a focus on sustainable development.
Studying environmental sciences gives you an integrated understanding how the various sciences and the environment are related, and how to use this knowledge to solve and manage today and tomorrow's environmental challenges. By studying environmental science at Griffith University, you will be able to make a difference to the environmental challenges of the 21st century.
