Bachelor of International Relations La Trobe University




Course info



Go beyond theory by identifying solutions to global challenges in this degree. A La Trobe Bachelor of International Relations encourages critical thinking while building your knowledge of law, politics and social science.

You'll develop an understanding of global issues; get skills and experience through overseas exchange, language studies and internships.

This degree explores power in political, social and cultural contexts. By analyzing multinational corporations, non-government and government organizations, you'll build an understanding of international affairs. Your subjects will cover areas like culture and globalization, democracies and dictatorships, and Australia as a global nation.

By examining power, sovereignty, security and political science through real-world examples, you'll gain knowledge of international trade, foreign affairs, diplomacy and conflict. You'll also study the historical contexts and social theories behind these areas, with an emphasis on 21st century law, economics and the state.

Along with developing your critical thinking, research and communication skills, you'll also have the chance to put these skills into practice. You'll be encouraged to study overseas at one of our overseas partner universities, which can help you decide on your major area of study and build your career network. You'll also have the opportunity to undertake an internship in Australia or overseas that's tailored to your career aspirations.

We encourage language studies and work placements throughout your degree. These can also contribute to your major and give you a deeper understanding of a geographical region or topic area.

The qualification awarded on graduation is recognized in the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) as Level 7.
