The School of Earth and Environmental Sciences delivers practical solutions to the complex issues that affect our physical environment and how we interact with it. Our interconnected teams of earth scientists, physical and social scientists, environmental management specialists, health and safety experts, and urban planners work together to address the increasingly critical global challenges of a growing population, climate change, urbanisation, food security, conservation and natural resource management. Researchers, teachers and students from around the world are drawn to our vibrant academic environment at UQ’s stunning St Lucia campus.

We house world-class research facilities and have access to unique fieldwork locations in Australia and abroad. UQ’s research excellence in earth and environmental sciences is world renowned, and is reflected by our consistent high ranking in respected global league tables. The School also has an excellent success rate in nationally competitive grants and a strong record of high quality publications.
