Australia’s only palaeontology degree

New in 2019 - 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.

New to Flinders in 2019, 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.
