In addition to Griffith University’s strong performance in world university rankings, Law and Legal Studies at Griffith ranked 43rd on the QS World Subject rankings, Social Sciences at Griffith ranked 151-200 in the ARWU field rankings, Political Science was rated ‘above world standard’ in the Excellence in Research for Australia 2012 round, and the Griffith MBA was ranked number one in Australia and 26 in the world in the Aspen Institute’s 2011-2012 edition of Beyond Grey Pinstripes, reflecting an institutional and program focus on sustainability. Griffith University is committed to developing research centres of national and international significance. Our shared strategic direction to tackle global issues from an Australian and regional knowledge-based perspective is embodied by a focus on 12 areas of strategic investment.

Water science

Asian politics, security and development

Griffith is taking a global scientific approach to finding a solution to the world’s water problems, including drought, water quality and climate change. Griffith’s Australian Rivers Institute plays a leading role in managing water resources with a focus on freshwater, estuarine and urban water. Institute staff have developed a set of ecosystem health assessment tools for measuring conservation efforts adopted in producing South East Queensland’s annual Healthy Waterways Report Card, and have revolutionised work in wastewater testing and identified the key factors that cause poor quality in drinking water. Researchers in this field also collaborate widely through the Tropical Rivers and Coastal Knowledge Hub, the Urban Water Security Research Alliance and the Queensland Smart Water Research Facility.

Researchers in this area are hosted by the Griffith Asia Institute and Centre for Governance and Public Policy, and include staff from the School of Government and International Relations and School of International Business and Asian Studies. Their research addresses the politics of Asia, with particular reference to rising powers, new modes of regional governance, and emerging security challenges and responses. The Griffith Asia Institute produces innovative, interdisciplinary research to promote knowledge of the everchanging dynamics of Australia’s region and its importance to our future, while the Centre for Governance and Public Policy undertakes research focussed on enhancing knowledge of governance, both globally and within Australia.

Drug discovery and infectious diseases Griffith University is a leader in drug discovery in Australia with a strong focus on infectious diseases and a cross-disciplinary approach to disease prevention and cure. Griffith’s Institute for Glycomics leads international research in carbohydrates-based drug discovery. The Eskitis Institute researchers search for new drug and cell-based drug therapies and are supported by the Institute’s hosting of the Queensland Compound Library and the Nature Bank, a unique collection of samples derived from plants and marine invertebrates. The Eskitis Institute is also home to the National Centre for Adult Stem Cell Research. Genomics researchers in the Griffith Health Institute are also involved in this field through their research in gene variants associated with migraine, breast cancer and skin cancer.

Professor Hamish McCallum from the School of Environment is part of the winning team – affectionately known as the ‘Devil’s Advocates’- who were awarded the Sherman Eureka Prize for Environmental Research. Professor Alan Mackay-Sim and his team from Griffith’s Eskitis Institute for Cell and Molecular Therapies, were awarded the Eureka Prizes People’s Choice Award.

Griffith Climate Change Response Program The Griffith Climate Change Response Program - established in 2006 to focus on the information needed to help governments, businesses and communities adapt to the physical impacts of climate change - coordinates research into climate change adaptation and mitigation through a multidisciplinary approach. Researchers work across a broad range of thematic areas: climate change adaption in coastal communities; adapting Australia’s towns and cities to climate change; public health impacts of a changing climate; land systems and climate change; understanding human and social responses; and climate change governance. From 2008-2013 Griffith has been host to the National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility, an Australian Government initiative to harness and coordinate the capabilities of Australia’s researchers in this field.


Higher Degrees by Research Griffith is a research intensive university with an international reputation and world-leading expertise in our Areas of Strategic Investment. Griffith researchers find solutions that bring real and positive change to 21st century challenges and priority issues. Griffith offers Higher Degree by Research programs in all disciplines and across all campuses. The programs provide a unique opportunity to follow a specific interest in a particular field of research. To find out more visit griffith.edu.au/international/study-at-griffith/hdr

Criminology and crime prevention

Education

Researchers in this field consider contemporary global challenges to society and community wellbeing with a focus on early intervention and prevention in areas of social disadvantage. Reflecting the multidisciplinary nature of this area, seven research centres at Griffith, hosting more than 200 researchers from across the University, are engaged in this field: Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence in Policing and Security; Key Centre for Ethics, Law, Justice and Governance; Socio-Legal Research Centre; Griffith Centre for Cultural Research; Urban Research Program; Griffith Social and Behavioural Research College; and the Institute for Ethics, Governance and Law, the only centre affiliated with the United Nations University in Australia.

Griffith University is committed to producing internationally relevant research across the broad fields of inquiry of education, literacy, learning and related areas, with a focus on ‘leading, learning and change across the lifespan’, within and outside schooling. Griffith’s strength in these fields rests on the depth of research expertise, hosted in the Griffith Institute for Educational Research and the School of Education and Professional Studies. Researchers are encouraged to undertake cross-disciplinary and cross-sectoral projects with industry that define research in education beyond traditional expectations. Past research into professional learning, language and literacy education, mathematics education, curriculum and assessment, and leadership in schools and communities has had a particularly strong impact on low socioeconomic and Aboriginal schools and communities.

Music, the Arts and the Asia Pacific Engagement with non-Western musical cultures of the Asia Pacific, as well as with the increasing interest in Western classical music in the Asia Pacific region is leading to a creative and dynamic relationship between Australia and its regional neighbours to promote exciting cultural exchanges. The Queensland Conservatorium Research Centre underpins this area through practice-based research and strong collaborations in the Asia Pacific region. The Queensland College of Art also contributes to this field, particularly through the Sustainable Environment through Culture in the Asia Pacific (SECAP) research initiative, while the Griffith Film School engages with film schools, academies and industry bodies in the Asia Pacific to develop the regional film industry.

Sustainable tourism Griffith University is a world leader in sustainable tourism research with an excellent publication record in top ranked journals. Staff from a range of academic disciplines collaborate in the area of Sustainable Tourism through the International Centre for Ecotourism Research in the Griffith School of Environment and the Centre for Tourism, Sport and Service Innovation within the Griffith Business School. Research collaborations, many with international partners, are focussed around the thematic areas of tourism and climate change, tourism and conservation, and tourism and corporate social and environmental responsibility. Researchers work closely with government and industry to inform the management and development of tourism to minimise the environmental, economic and sociocultural costs while maximising the benefits.

Health and chronic diseases Griffith University is at the centre of a growing health and knowledge precinct on the Gold Coast and the Griffith Health Institute is central to this hub with its focus on the world’s most important health research areas including cancer, heart disease, population trends, psychology and diabetes. The Institute has six key research programs: Heart Foundation Research Centre; molecular basis of disease; clinical and community practice innovation; behavioural basis of health; population and social health research; and the Centre for Musculoskeletal Research. Griffith’s Australian Institute for Suicide Research and Prevention is at the forefront of national and international suicide research and was named a World Health Organization Collaborating Centre for Research and Training in Suicide Prevention in 2005.

Environmental sciences Environmental Science research at Griffith is managed primarily through the Environmental Futures Centre, whose researchers engage in multidisciplinary research to aid the understanding of critical environmental issues and develop solutions that will facilitate clean, resilient and sustainable futures for Australian and global environments. The Centre’s multidisciplinary nature results from the synergies of the Griffith School of Environment and School of Biomolecular and Physical Sciences. Researchers are engaged in a comprehensive range of fields with a common focus on excellence in fundamental science, environmental sustainability and the effective development of evidence based solutions to significant environmental challenges. Research is organised into four priority areas: clean environment and energy; resilient biodiversity and ecosystems; sustainable landscape management; and Australia’s past and future.

Nursing Nursing research at Griffith University is conducted through the Centre for Health Practice Innovation, established in 2003 to find solutions to critical healthcare challenges and undertake cutting edge research that results in better health and community care and improved quality of life. The Centre is home to a multidisciplinary research team and aims to transform health and community services through the development of collaborative, innovative and sustainable models of care and frameworks for practice among service providers and individuals, families and communities. The Centre also hosts the first National Health and Medical Research Council Centre of Research Excellence in Nursing Interventions for Hospitalised Patients (NCREN) which aims to enable greater collaboration internationally through training, research and knowledge transfer.

Physical sciences The Physical Sciences area combines the research excellence of Griffith’s Centre for Quantum Dynamics and the Queensland Microand Nanotechnology Centre. The Centre for Quantum Dynamics conducts world-leading research in ultrafast quantum processes, quantum information, and quantum foundations, and hosts the Queensland nodes of two Australian Research Council Centres of Excellence, the Centre for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology and the Centre for Coherent X-Ray Science. Griffith’s Queensland Micro- and Nanotechnology Centre focuses on problems that are integral to the development of clean and intelligent systems and has particular strengths in sustainable energy technologies, novel devices and materials, theory and modelling. It also hosts the Queensland Microtechnology Facility where unique silicon-carbide on silicon substrates have been developed.

Where a Griffith degree can take you... When I found out the Griffith Exchange program provided study opportunities in Krakow, I knew exactly where I wanted to go. Everyday when I walked into the Old Town, past the Wawel Castle I couldn’t believe how lucky I was. Krakow is also well connected with the rest of Europe with most of the budget airlines flying into Krakow’s Balice Airport. I only wish I could do this again.

I was recently accepted for an internship with United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UN ESCAP) in Bangkok. This internship was for four months and provided a great opportunity to learn firsthand the real development issues and the processes of international cooperation. Bangkok suits all budgets, from the humble street food to the greatest worldclass cuisine.

The study at Pepperdine was creative and down to earth. I have learned how to solve managerial dilemmas in real-world situations via hands-on marketing practices. Life is to explore the unknown. Don’t miss out on the opportunities to go, to see, to understand the world and yourself.

As an international student from China, I believe it is an extremely valuable thing to experience both Australia and European countries. The French city in which I studied is located in Rouen, Normandy, one hour and 15 minutes from Paris. The city is very old and quiet, but you can get everything you want here, and enjoy a simple traditional European lifestyle.

It is the perfect way of getting out of your comfort zone, meeting new friends and experiencing different perspectives at an educational level. I would say that to study abroad is the perfect way of making the most out of your education back home!

Anna Sjostrand

In taking a semester abroad with Griffith, I wanted to study subjects that are complementary to what I study at home and that are relevant to my future study aspirations. With Griffith it seems that I’ve hit the jackpot! Furthermore, I think the most important experience I’ll get from this semester is having the guts to leave everything behind to follow my passion and knowing that an open mind will get me far in life.

Research from Australia and around the world shows that employers’ value graduates who have undertaken a quality study abroad program. Employers see the value of graduates with the ability to adapt, to lead, to understand cultural differences - all of which can be developed through quality study abroad experiences.

Know more about

Business+ Government It’s bigger than business

Learn from the best

We offer more than business - we offer Business Plus. Combine your studies in business, commerce or management with another area that’s important to you and create the type of career that suits you. Combine two majors to broaden your options in the one degree, or combine any two business degrees to create a double degree. Or, combine your business degree with law, arts, digital media, journalism, engineering, music or a range of other areas.

Our degrees are informed by our world-class research, which means you graduate with the knowledge, skills and confidence needed to set yourself apart in the job market. As well as learning from lecturers in the classroom, you’ll learn from industry professionals, and discover how business theory applies on the job.

State-of-the-art facilities

Through industry placements, you’ll gain hands-on experience and develop practical skills and knowledge to support your classroom studies. Or you might choose to complete part of your degree overseas through our outgoing exchange program or an international internship.

We’re building business on the Gold Coast, with our new $35 million building set to be ready for students from 2014. The building will include a simulated trading room as part of a specialised teaching space for finance and financial planning students.

in a wide range of vocations in the popular music industry. The program combines the traditions of popular music production with modern technology within an academic environment that fosters skills in creativity and innovation. It incorporates the learning approaches commonly found in popular music cultures by focusing on contemporary popular music practices, emergent technologies and skills in sound engineering and production, along with up-todate research in popular music history and analysis. Education and training in popular music at tertiary level is a very recent phenomenon. This degree gives you the edge by enabling you to develop transferable skills, including creativity and imagination, self-assessment ability, self-directed learning and information literacy. You will also acquire skills in problem-solving and decision-making, critical thinking and analytical ability, writing skills, oral delivery, numeracy, information and communication technologies, teamwork and planning and project management. You will have 24 hour access to extensive recording studio facilities so you can record, review and improve your songs and improvisations. As an integral part of this process, you will undertake both theoretical and practical training in popular music, with particular emphasis on the development of creativity in music technology, production, performance, song writing and the business of music.

Program structure: The program contains five streams of study Major Study: This study focuses on the development of original musical product through innovative creative practices and processes. In collaboration with other students, you will spend a considerable amount of time working in the recording studios to create, rehearse, record and produce original musical product. You will be required to submit a recorded portfolio of this work and a project journal for assessment each semester. This usually takes the form of a CD with graphics you design yourself to appropriately signify the musical style. However, it might take the form of a DVD or VCD with original music composed to accompany a short film, animation, theatrical production or music video clip. Vocal and instrumental master classes, music business seminars and recording project workshops help you to develop the musical and associated skills required not only for completion of the major study recorded portfolio but also for a successful career in the music industry. Resource Studies: Comprises courses largely associated with rhythmic awareness, composition and songwriting, and the dissemination of the musical product. Compositional outcomes utilize music industry standard technology and are directed toward a wide range of music industry formats and needs. Supporting Studies: These studies include courses to enable you to develop skills in information technology software, basic acoustics and sound engineering and production. Popular Music: These studies include courses associated with creative music technologies, rhythmic awareness and the dissemination of the musical product. Compositional outcomes utilize music industry standard technology and are directed toward a wide range of music industry formats and needs. Music Literature and Culture Studies: These studies contains six semesters of courses focussing on popular music history, with a substantial focus on the development and impact of popular music styles and cultures. A historical survey from 1930s country and blues styles to recent popular music styles provides a forum for students to focus on a wide variety of popular music repertoire. This is all important to developing your creative practice. As with most musicians working in the popular music industry, familiarity and engagement with a wide range of popular music styles provides a basis for experimentation in song writing, performance, recording and production techniques.

Career outcomes:

You will find employment opportunities in large music organisations and the entertainment industry, as well as the education sector. Many graduates have gone on to establish their own businesses - such as recording studios, teaching studios, music distribution and artist and repertoire companies. The Bachelor of Popular Music also serves as a first step for those wishing to develop careers in music research and higher education.

The Interior Environments major explores the nature of use and design in interior and exterior spaces in the built environment, including institutional, commercial and domestic spaces. The courses within the program range from cultural understandings to technical processes and skills. The Product Design major focuses on design for need, as opposed to design for want, addressing a range of problems and opportunities using innovative thinking and a creative approach. Project outcomes are supported by understanding the nature of systems and how objects work, how we interact with our surroundings and the effect our design decisions have on our environment and other people. The aim is to create positive, realistic but imaginative solutions to serious and everyday problems. The Visual Communication Design major is an exciting and cutting edge program that will focus on the most relevant aspects of visual communication. It will equip you with critical interdisciplinary knowledge and design skills that are crucial to solve complex communication problems in times of rapid, social, economic, environmental and cultural change. It will prepare you to be a socially and environmentally responsible designer and educate you to develop advanced visual communication thinking and practical solutions. You will study many different aspects and areas including corporate and brand design, design for social change, design for culture and education, print, web, publishing, advertising, socially responsive communication and digital media. The aim of the program is to educate design leaders of the future. Design Futures is an exciting new major that will allow high performing students to potentially redirect, challenge and rethink traditional processes and procedures within the design industry, to re-educate both industry and consumer models of the future. It has been created to provide the means for graduates to become ‘design strategists’.

Professional recognition:

As a graduate of the Bachelor of Design Futures with Honours program (offered at South Bank campus), you will be eligible for membership of the Design Institute of Australia.

Additional costs:

Note: for this degree, it is recommended that you have your own laptop computer by the start of the first year of study. Information on computers and computer configuration, as well as recommended software, should be discussed with the appropriate design discipline convenor.

Griffithexperience

about their

Griffith has provided me with a very supportive environment to conduct my research. The Department of Accounting, Finance and Economics has a wide variety of research expertise to draw upon and has excellent student support. I have also had the opportunity to teach undergraduate courses which has provided me with a very rich experience of getting to know and understand the cultures of students from more than 50 countries.

As an international student, student support is at times, crucial to my success. Anytime I’ve had questions or concerns, they have always been addressed quickly and accurately. I feel at home at Griffith, and feel happy knowing that away from all of my friends and family back home, I’ve still got a great support network here.

PhD

I’m so happy that I’ve gotten the opportunities to become involved on campus through different volunteer programs and social events. I love all of my classes and lecturers and the hands on approach is exactly what I hoped for.

impacts. They examine the different economic instruments and legal tools available or proposed, both nationally and internationally, to mitigate and adapt to climate change, and analyse the various economic instruments such as carbon taxes and emissions trading regimes. Legal and policy decisions in different sectors, such as renewable energy and transport, are examined. Society’s vulnerability to climate change impacts and possible adaptive strategies, with various foci such as human health, biodiversity, natural disaster management (e.g. bushfires/ droughts) and urban systems are explored. There is the opportunity to gain practical experience by exploring a theme in climate change via an applied project, possibly in conjunction with an industry partner or one of Griffith’s research centres.

Career outcomes:

These programs provide the skills and knowledge necessary to work in the areas of environmental climate change and policy making. Students will develop the ability to work in multidisciplinary teams, to contribute to policymaking processes, and to run environmental management systems.

In 1988 Griffith added campuses at the Gold Coast and Mt Gravatt and brought the Queensland Conservatorium of Music (established in 1957) and the Queensland College of Art (established in 1881) under the Griffith umbrella in the same year. Due to increasing demand, the construction of the $38 million Griffith University campus at Logan followed in the late 1990’s.

Our Nathan campus is also undergoing an extensive facilities upgrade. The newly completed $29 million Campus Heart features stateof-the-art seminar rooms, a function space, new student centre, classrooms, upgraded library and a central courtyard, and the $39 million Sir Samuel Griffith Centre - due for completion in 2013 – will be the country’s first zero-emission and self-powering teaching and research building. Griffith is continually growing, innovating and building new facilities making us one of the most dynamic universities in the world. With five state of the art campuses, world class lecturers and 32 research centres and institutes, Griffith is taking the challenges of the 21st century head on. Whether it’s around the corner or around the world, Griffith researchers and students, are shaping the future.

Today, Griffith is undergoing the largest and most ambitious capital development program in its 40-year history. A unique Health and Knowledge Precinct is developing around our Gold Coast campus with the new $150 million Griffith Health Centre and $1.76 billion Gold Coast University Hospital both scheduled to open in 2013. A $20 million expansion of the Gold Coast campus library is also nearing completion, and work on the new $35 million Business Building - which will feature a state-of-the-art financial trading centre, dedicated MBA executive teaching suite, technology-rich seminar and public lecture spaces and function room - is underway.

Clockwise from main: New Gold Coast campus library; the new Sir Samuel Griffith Centre at Nathan campus; the new Campus Heart at Nathan; the new Griffith Health Centre on the Gold Coast campus.

application

Applying for credit transfer Griffith University awards credit for formal study undertaken in recognised tertiary institutions in Australia and overseas.

3 - 4 Year bachelors degree The maximum amount of credit which may be granted is two-thirds of the program. Less than 3 Year bachelors degree The maximum amount of credit which may be granted is one-half of the program. Credit for electives Where the bachelors degree provides for electives, unspecified credit may be granted on the basis of prior study at Diploma level or higher. In this case, the prior study may be in an area unrelated to the area of the bachelors degree, unless a specific list of electives is detailed under the program’s suggested pattern of enrolment griffith.edu.au/programs-courses Credit for related study Where the prior study is related to the bachelors degree, specified credit can be granted for particular course(s) in the bachelors degree. However, this is on the grounds that the student has satisfied program requirements by completing the equivalent course content, as determined by the Dean of School. Articulation agreements An articulation agreement is an agreement between Griffith and another institution to document and publicise a specifically approved pathway for progression from an external award program into a Griffith award program. Articulation agreements typically involve (but are not limited to) an agreement to award block credit or advanced standing. For more information on Griffith’s current articulation agreements refer to griffith.edu.au/credit

Postgraduate credit guidelines Masters (more than 1-year) In masters programs that are more than one year (120 - 160 CP) in length, credit (specified and unspecified) may be granted on the basis of study previously completed, but at least 80 CP of work must be completed by study of courses within the masters degree. Masters (1-year) In masters programs that are one year (80CP) in length, a maximum of 20CP of credit may be granted. Professional experience Credit is usually based on formal coursework, which is equivalent in content and standard to a Griffith course in the masters program. Credit may also be granted where a student has extensive professional experience, which satis
