The program introduces students to the scientific research culture early in their degree program, challenging their abilities to produce high quality advanced work. Students have the additional opportunity to engage in research science early in their degree by undertaking one Advanced Studies course per semester and a significant project in their final semester. In doing so, the students will be individually guided and mentored by one or more of the outstanding scientific researchers within Griffith's schools and research centres. Students will be extremely well prepared for a career in their chosen specialisation, and valuable to employers in almost any realm of business, industry and government as well as the more typical areas of science graduate employment such as AusAID, Departments of Education and Science, Environment, Primary Industries, Natural Resources, Health, Defence, CSIRO, Patents Offices and the Bureau of Meteorology. Areas of possible employment include hospitals and medical research institutes, consultancies, parks and fisheries management, agriculture and horticulture, technical sales, analytical labs, bio-technology and pharmaceutical companies, the food and beverage industry electricity companies, and oil and mineral exploration. The Honours program also provides students with high level research and problem solving skills and a pathway to PhD studies. Depending on their major, graduates are eligible to join: Ausbiotech Limited, Australian and New Zealand Society for Cell and Developmental Biology, Australian Institute of Food Science and Technology, Australian Institute of Physics, Australian Mathematical Society, Australian Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Australian Society for Medical Research, Australian Society for Microbiology, Australian Society of Plant Scientists, Royal Australian Chemical Institute.
