Marine programs and courses

UQ’s marine science programs are renowned for their hands-on experiences, focus on persistent environmental challenges, and relevance to the bioeconomy and its current and emerging industries.

You’ll gain field experience during your stay at UQ’s marine stations on the Great Barrier Reef and in the subtropical Coral Sea, and hone your practical and technical skills in advanced laboratories on campus at UQ St Lucia.

You’ll learn from one of the largest groups of marine researchers in Australia, and many members of the Centre for Marine Science are world experts in their fields.

Our research leaders have expertise across a range of disciplines, including marine biology, coastal and ocean systems, ecology and conservation, geography and geology, biotechnology, global change science, engineering, business and law.
