JCU’s programs in tropical marine ecology and fisheries biology are dedicated to the study of tropical, shallow water marine systems. There is an emphasis on whole organism biology, the ecology and biogeography of tropical marine organisms, and the evolutionary mechanisms that underlie their diversity.
Proximity to the Great Barrier Reef provides unparalleled opportunities for investigating ecological and evolutionary questions for reef fish, corals, and other marine organisms.
Students will develop their knowledge and skills in quantitative marine ecology, conservation biology, and the biology, life history and taxonomy of tropical marine organisms. Preliminary coursework subjects consist of semester-long offerings. More advanced subjects are offered by block mode, which are 2-week intensive sessions on campus. The courses are flexible, with a range of electives available. Students devise a study program to meet their professional goals, in consultation with the course coordinator. Programs may include a research component if approved.

This course in zoology and ecology complements the Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Sustainability undergraduate degrees offered on the Cairns campus.
Students have access to new and unique research facilities including the Tropical Sustainable Futures Complex (TSFC) on the Cairns campus and the Daintree Rainforest Observatory (DRO) at the site of the Canopy Crane at Cape Tribulation.
The two new field-based facilities provide direct and ready access to field locations and are designed for students to engage in practical field activities and long-term monitoring projects. Both facilities present exciting teaching opportunities that will provide students with much greater real-world experience and engagement with field biology.
These are flexible courses allowing students to specialise in the animals and ecology of rainforests, savannas, tropical freshwater systems, tropical wildlife, or tropical insects.

JCU’s programs in tropical marine ecology and fisheries biology are dedicated to the study of tropical, shallow water marine systems. There is an emphasis on whole organism biology, the ecology and biogeography of tropical marine organisms, and the evolutionary mechanisms that underlie their diversity.
Proximity to the Great Barrier Reef provides unparalleled opportunities for investigating ecological and evolutionary questions for reef fish, corals, and other marine organisms.
Students will develop their knowledge and skills in quantitative marine ecology, conservation biology, and the biology, life history and taxonomy of tropical marine organisms. Preliminary coursework subjects consist of semester-long offerings. More advanced subjects are offered by block mode, which are 2-week intensive sessions on campus. The courses are flexible, with a range of electives available. Students devise a study program to meet their professional goals, in consultation with the course coordinator. Programs may include a research component if approved.

The Master of Biomedical and Health Science is a coursework degree to be undertaken in key research areas in the sub-Faculty of Biomedical and Psychological Sciences in the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences.

The focus in your initial year will be on research methods and practices. You will undertake coursework units in pedagogical and research skills training, and engage in specialist theory units. Your second year involves a full-time research project and internship under the supervision of a member of the academic staff. The internship will equip you with skills highly valued by employers.

The intention of the Masters program is to provide students with flexibility, a core Monash value enunciated in the "Monash: The Next 10 years" strategy document, and to gain an understanding of the nature of workplaces and their associated values, routines and cultures and to develop and refine skills and professional capacity for work.

The work undertaken in this degree must contribute significantly to the knowledge and understanding of a field of study of direct concern to the Faculty. Additionally, it must demonstrate your capacity to carry out independent research. In the second year, you will complete a literature review, assist in the planning of a research project, conduct the research project, and write a thesis.

Specialisations

Infectious diseases and population health
This specialisation provides you with the skills to formulate a research question on the most important, prevalent, emerging or neglected diseases affecting humans and conduct research to address that question in the second year of study, by generalising and integrating discipline knowledge gained in the first year of study. The emphasis is on those diseases affecting resource-poor or low and middle income countries and you will use a variety of research techniques and methodologies to address this question.

Neuroscience
This specialisation provides you with the skills to formulate a research question on the relationships between brain processes and behaviour and conduct research to address that question in the second year of study, by generalising and integrating discipline knowledge gained in the first year of study. The emphasis is on the relationship between brain and behaviour, in health and/or disease, and you will use a variety of research techniques and methodologies to address this question.

Regenerative medicine and stems cells
This specialisation provides you with the skills to formulate a research question on the repair or replacement of damaged human tissues and organs in health and disease and conduct research to address that question in the second year of study, by generalising and integrating discipline knowledge gained in the first year of study. The emphasis is on the cells, factors, other biological building blocks, and bioengineered materials and technologies that assist the body's regenerative capacity, and you will use a variety of research techniques and methodologies to address this question.

Cardiovascular diseases
This specialisation provides you with the skills to formulate a research question on the role of the cardiovascular system in health and disease and conduct research to address that question in the second year of study, by generalising and integrating discipline knowledge gained in the first year of study. The emphasis is on dysfunctions of the cardiovascular system in disease or how disease impacts on the cardiovascular system, and you will have the opportunity to use a variety of research techniques and methodologies, from the cellular level though to integrative physiology and pharmacology, including the whole animal, to address this question.
