Coastal and Marine Science

Is the ocean and coast part of your lifestyle? Are you wanting to learn about our diverse coastal and marine environments?

The Faculty of Science at the University of Newcastle invites you to celebrate the launch of our exciting new Bachelor of Coastal and Marine Science ahead of its first intake in Semester 1 2020 at both our Callaghan and Central Coast campuses.

The coastal and marine environment provides recreation, food, energy, and other valuable resources that need to be sustainably managed in the face of an uncertain future. With the worsening impacts of climate change, pollution and urban development, it is vital we train quality marine scientists with a passion for the environment to help combat these global issues. Through our unique position, students will have the opportunity to conduct fieldwork in key coastal and marine landscapes. From pristine estuaries to urban developments, major waterways and coastal zones, students will investigate and contribute to solving real world problems.

Come along to learn more about our new program. You’ll hear from our leading academics, industry experts and get hands on with some of the unique equipment marine scientists are using every day.
