Australia’s only palaeontology degree

There was much excitement around the lab this week with the unveiling of a big billboard on campus promoting the only palaeontology undergraduate degree offered in Australia. And yes, you guessed it, that’s at Flinders University in Adelaide!

Not only is our group the largest palaeontological academic and research team in Australia, but starting next year, we are now are the only place where you can get a BSc (Palaeontology) degree! The degree combines lab and field-based topics with others from Archaeology, Environmental Sciences and the Visual Arts. It is said that the students will “emerge with a deep understanding of life through time and space, particularly for Australian vertebrates and their environment.” It will cover the many broad facets of palaeontology, and I’m just a little jealous that I wont be able to do it myself, but I’m very much looking forward to being involved with it.
