Examine the intricate relationship between climate, coastal systems and marine environments to solve complex challenges facing our oceans.
In this minor, you'll dive into the scientific study of coastal processes, oceanography, ecology, marine geology and marine conservation.
You’ll learn to apply a wide range of evidence-based environmental and conservation strategies to protect vital coastal habitats and marine ecosystems across the globe.
Guided by Australia’s leading marine researchers, you’ll gain fieldwork experience at UQ’s Heron Island Research Station on the southern Great Barrier Reef and UQ’s Moreton Bay Research Station on North Stradbroke Island.
Studying a minor in coastal and ocean science will add depth to broad range of complementary fields including ecology and conversation biology, earth science or zoology.
You’ll be equipped for a broad range of opportunities in areas such as:
- natural resource management
- environmental management
- government departments.
