Choosing Flinders gave me an opportunity to study forensics in a broad way by covering laboratory vs field options and biological vs chemical forensics for future pathways. I feel confident knowing that my teaching staff have my best interest at heart and I can meet with them if I have any questions to gain clarity in lecture and assessment content. The campus has beautifully set up study areas that were designed around human interaction that people can immediately feel comfortable in. Flinders fulfills all my expectations and checks all my boxes.”

Australia’s only palaeontology degree

Study a Bachelor of Science (Palaeontology)

Flinders is the only university in Australia to offer a dedicated undergraduate degree in Palaeontology, combining lab and field-based topics from Biological and Environmental Sciences, Archaeology and Visual Arts.

The Bachelor of Science (Palaeontology) will provide you with in-depth knowledge and appreciation of the Australian fossil record, and a broad-based foundation in the scientific principles underpinning palaeontology and allied disciplines. 

Our students emerge with a deep understanding of life through time and space, particularly for Australian vertebrates and their environment.
